HoleRole created some nice blackout curtains using an age-old design trick: perforating them with patterns, in this case cities at night. Choose from London, New York, or night sky.

Once you roll it out and the room becomes involved into pleasant half-light, and outside the window appears a beautiful view of the night city or the night sky.

At night "HoleRoll" blinds have the opposite effect, you can see from the outside the shining city skyline or the starry sky.
