Rachel, a Saffron Marigold customer, is considering new window treatments in a bedroom where she’s currently using Moonlit Taj curtains as fabric closet covers. Wisely, she’s not going the “matchy-matchy” route, but instead would like to introduce complementary fabrics to the room.
Ivy Lace and Moonlit Taj share similar layouts and borders, and would almost mirror each other across the room. The Tulip Mist curtain, on the other hand, has a less involved print and would provide an elegant “rest” for the eye, while still creating interest. If the room is a smaller space, I’d lean toward the Tulip Mist.
Because sheers are so versatile, and really do create magic by diffusing light, I thought we’d look at just a few ideas of how to use sheers in a bedroom.
Whites always add clean, fresh lines. This oceanside bedroom makes a great connection between turquoises, blues and filmy whites.
Soften up a linear bedroom by using sheers to create a canopy. Our tab-top curtains make this a simple DIY project.
Finally, if you need to make creative use of your space, sheers make wonderful room dividers. They don’t completely block light so as to make the space seem cramped or cut off, but instead allow light to pass through while providing privacy.
Rachel, best of luck in designing your bedroom. Let us know what you decide to do!
