The curtains that run along two sides of the room are a deep blue, matte with a textured weave, backed with a light-reducing lining. The weightiness of the curtains feels rich and luxurious. At night, when they are drawn closed against the night, an intimate and cosy atmosphere descends and the standard lamps pool light onto the chairs set up for reading and shadows are thrown. Each morning as the drapes are opened, a twist is needed to bond and gather the material up as, with a controlled sweep, they are pulled back to reveal the spread of the day.
