There’s no need for skylights to look boring when you want to block the sun, which is why the manufacturer has launched a collection of blinds with 85 colors and patterns including a series by design star Karim Rashid. The collection includes blinds that block 98 percent of outside light and light filtering blinds that admit diffused light. Cost: $140 to $450. Velux America. 800-283-2831. www.veluxusa.com.
