Last winter, I got a new project of interior designing for a painter. If you are wondering, why it was a different project, then let me tell you, a home for a painter is just not a house but an artist’s retreat. It is a place where he will be creating some amazing art. So, it was necessary that I design a house that will be a perfect place of seclusion where his creative ideas can flow uninhibitedly. I was quite open about listening to the painter’s ideas as well. One thing he was very particular about. He wanted me to opt for a special kind of window coverings that will never block the views outside, especially during monsoon.
When we choose our window coverings, the main focus remains on the privacy and light. But in this case, I had to think about something different that will take care of these two factors along with giving the painter a chance to enjoy the rain from the comfort of his house. So, I had to do some quality research to come up with the right kind of window treatments that would suit his requirements.
