what kind of blind is it? where is it from? - I need a black-out blind for some large west-facing windows, but I'd like something that can disappear when it isn't down.

i actually don't know the make of the blinds, it's not a blackout blind, but definitely keeps the glare from the sun out, we get a lot of sunshine in this room on the rare sunny days. it's a pale grey white blind, and was custom designed for the place by the builder.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Designed as a family space in which to relax, create and be inspired, the living room is bright and open, with floor-to-ceiling windows that frame the west-facing views. "I had this idea to create a focal point along the back wall," says Insiya. "We bought the house the same year we got married in Tofino, and some of our friends who were artists and photographers gave us some lovely pieces." The black and white tree photograph is by Alex Jowett of Toronto.Coffee table: Drake, Gus Modern
