Sheer Summer Style
With the sun dipping below the horizon a little later each day, it’s time to infuse some sheer fabric into your home, opening the windows and inviting the warm glow of sunshine in. The lightweightness of sheer allows a simple breeze to instantly send your curtains and canopies (and heart) aflutter, while bringing a sense of elegance and femininity to a design. But before you begin incorporating the see-through styles, keep these five tidbits in mind:
- Sheer and Simple: Skinny rods compliment lightweight curtains. Adding a chunky valance will take away from the wispy effect you’re going for with a sheer curtain.
- Pattern Play: When people think of sheers, they immediately think of solid ivory or white. Adding sheers with subtle patterns adds interest; however, keep the tones simple in order to maintain the airy look, such as these from the Windrose collection of Home Fabrics.
