Should I add an interior window to walled off loft space?

August 3, 2013 in Design Dilemma
Need advice on whether this remodeled loft space should have an interior window or not? I am posting before images of it (1985 staicase rail), then my artist rendering of what it will look like after remodel (adding wall to close it in to a conforming bedroom). Should I put an interior window (located high up) on the wall? On the upper right side of the stairs you can see I am adding a partial wall with three interior windows. Do I also need an interior window on the left wall?

The 4th image is the "big picture" concept / rendering showing the new remodeled / updated staircase and new wall on right side with three interior windows (to allow light to pass thru into hallway). On the left side of stair is the new wall essentially making the old loft a conforming bedroom. Do I need an interior window on this wall? As you can see I already have 2 good size windows on that wall. I'm leaning toward using the wall for a large painting vs another interior window. Can you help me decide?

Not a great image, but here is what it might feel like with a large square canvas on that wall in question.

Hello Mike, Just before I scrolled down to the above photo, I was thinking - not another window, either a large canvas or piece of interesting art.

This is under construction now without an interior window on the left side (loft bedroom) and 3 windows with opaque 3 form acrylic (white linen) on the right side as shown in the images. I'll post some after pics in a few days.

The construction is underway. We will not do a window in loft bedroom on upper left, but we are doing the interior windows on the right.
