Fantasy Shades

Create the illusion of a view of Rome from a rooftop apartment

The view from my apartment is into my neighbor?s living room. Not quite the vista of Central Park I was hoping for, but it fits the budget. I am going to keep playing the lottery but until I strike it big, I think I have found the answer: Melissa Borrell Design?s Fantasy Shade. Pull down her digitally printed nylon mesh blinds and the Manhattan skyline, the Golden Gate Bridge, or the trees of Rome can be seen through your window. Any of her gorgeous landscape photography is available on a UV filtering shade, but send her a picture of your favorite scene and the dimensions of your window, and she?ll give you your dream view.

Fantasy Shade, $160 for the 32wide, ready-made shade. For custom quotes or for motor or remote-controlled shades:

Downtown Manhattan is just outside your window
