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:
A classic sheer from Crate and Barrel for the classic or transitional style.
Eggshell color. Elegant but contemporary.
For the trendy living room, a chevron sheer in a soft grey.
A traditional damask pattern, in an updated contemporary look for the transitional home.
Grey is the new neutral and this striped white and grey sheer combines the traditional white with a bold grey stripe. This snazzy sheer will pop your room.
For a fun contemporary look, this sheer with a pretty floral pattern will lighten up any room.
This sheer offers a contemporary twist on a traditional look with cut out lace at the top to allow the light, and more of an opaque look for privacy where it counts!
A crushed voile sheer will add interest to a neutral gray wall with a pop of trendy blue.
Crushed voile sheer. Bed, Bath & Beyond.
A trendy geometric pattern in popular grey will add interest in a room.
Geometric styles are very trendy right now and this cute sheer in straw will be a head turning in any living room or bedroom.
And of course, if you still want a white sheer, there are many different styles offered in white. Below is the same geometric pattern by Allan & Roth, but it’s available in a white pattern on white as shown below.
