This thread reminded me that I have an interior design question that I don’t know the answer to: has there been invented a window treatment that allows one to look out of one’s window while NOT allowing outside viewers to look in?
Here is my situation: I have a spectacular view of the Manhattan skyline from my dining room and kitchen BUT I often wake up in the morning in whatever I was sleeping in (often nothing) and wish to poke around in the kitchen, make coffee, etc. in a state of dress that will alarm any passing neighbor who peers in. (Outside my window is a walkway to other apartments in my high-rise, empty space for about 23 hours and 55 minutes per day, but it’s those other 5 minutes I’m concerned about.)
For years, I just kept the skyline blocked off with heavy drapes, but that seems a shame to me–the ideal would be some sort of treatment that lets me look out but doesn’t let passersby look in. Does this exist?
