hessian rugs make great sun shades

Besides the tiles, the other big idea I got from our Seville trip was the notion of using hessian rugs as window shades.  We saw them in quite a few places as an alternative to the more intricate blinds.  I can imagine they would work better too as they'd be heavier and thus block out more light.

Of course, we'd have to think carefully about how they were used at Amherst to ensure it didn't cause more bushfire problems.  Maybe they're in a form that can be easily taken down during high risk periods.  Or maybe we don't do it at all... still, I like the idea :-)
