Are sheer curtains out of style?

What do you think of when you think of sheer curtains?  Long white plain curtains, with a valance at the top and panelled curtains at the side probably in some floral type of pattern?  The white sheers that you would see in your grandmother’s living room?

Well think again!  Sheers ARE in style but, thank goodness, they are trendy, they come in different styles and colors, and they can actually be a focal point in your room.  A far cry from the days where the boring white sheer was seen but not heard.  Today, the new sheers shout “look at me.”

 

Check out these sheers:
