Those who don't have trees in their front yard, but want the shade without using curtains, can try this interesting design by Maynard Architects as shown in the Tattoo House.

The window treatment all across the front of the house is a faux foliage facade of tree-shaped stickers stuck to the window. What's neat is it lets in just enough sun with a natural shade from the "trees." At night, the Tattoo House window facade emits enough light from around the sticker's shape, making it look like there is foliage inside your house.
