All of our windows came with these weird blind things, that actually work great with open windows, which we always have since we have no A/C. All except our kitchen window. It was suggested I use a roman shade, but I have no modeling around the window so that was a no go. I watched a lot of Clean House episodes on Netflix before me moved, so I really wanted to have curtain rings, because the designer uses curtain rings on every episode. And even if I didn't like them before, after two seasons of seeing it, I wanted it. Just like that Big Mac.
