Privacy With Style

We have come a long way from the old fashioned style of net curtains that Grandma had in her home. There are so many beautiful fabrics available today to give privacy and sunlight control in your home.Take a look at the way these sheers flow evenly across the window. This window looks out onto a neighbouring house and the owners wanted not only to preserve their privacy, but also to make a design statement. The fabric is a woven cotton muslin, leadweighted in the hem to make them fall beautifully and finished with a wave top heading. The tops of the curtains are attached to the curtain track with a unique stud system, are easily removable for laundering, and always look tailored with the pleats spaced perfectly evenly.

You can see in this picture how the folds flow beneath the track. This pleating system looks great on lined curtains too and is a much classier finish than a gathered curtain tape.

 The curtain  on the left is a combination of two colours of sheer that have been joined to create a border. The fabric is Amble white, with the border in Amble sheer, by Villa Nova.

This gorgeous cloth is called Pompom, by Charles Parsons. It is 100% polyester yet looks and feels like linen. It has the added advantage of being 300 cm wide so can usually be made .
continuously, i.e. without seams showing.

A closely woven sheer can also be made in to a roman blind, a very contemporary yet quite soft look to complement any interior.
