Style Secret: Bare WindowsWe hardly even need to say this, but fussy draperies and flouncy shades make a minimalist room feel way overdressed. Keep windows unadorned and let their simple architecture shine. If privacy is a concern, consider textured glass or apply a translucent film to screen out curious gazes. Softer side: Can't bear to leave your windows totally naked? If you must add a window treatment of some sort, make it as elemental as possible, such as matchstick blinds or a sleek roller shade. If the rest of your space is very streamlined, you might be able to pull off plain curtain panels, but be sure they're made of a solid fabric in a color that won't stop the eye.
