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 reason to have naked windows is they are a bad fit for your personal value system.
OK, I fully get it. Many HENRYs (High Earners Not Rich Yet, aka under 40 professionals) place a high value on experiences and luxury travel. Or maybe paying off student loans is a priority.
I am not telling anyone they must dress their windows.
I was once sucked into a group conversation where one participant adamantly described curtains and window dressing in general as "dust catching eyesores" and why would anyone ever want them? Our First Amendment rights in action regardless of manners.
Privacy, beauty, and the way they give a room a truly finished and layered look came immediately to my mind but that was a conversation 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.
