Of course there are always exceptions.
Spectacular views require naked windows. Which makes me wonder if minimalists are exhibitionists at heart if not in actual practice.

And of course one reason to have naked windows is plain old dislike. OK, you're a minimalist without the exhibitionist element. I get it.
Another might be a bad fit for our value system, i.e., investing in experiential entertainment (travel, restaurants and the like) or tuition (I can think of a million others) are high priorities and window dressings will never, ever be on the list. I get it.
The above being said, I am a huge proponent of refraining from informing others that a) their value system must align with ours and/or b) curtains/blinds/shades are ugly because we don't like them.
You are probably wondering why I include this caution. I was once sucked into a conversation where one participant described curtains and window dressing in general as "dust catching eyesores" and why would anyone ever want them. Privacy came immediately to mind but some conversations are not worth continuing. Another fine example of living long enough to see and hear just about everything.
OK, I'm officially off the soap box.
