With the guest room newly decked out with a DIY sheer window covering, the townhouse is almost, officially, all about sheers. Only the office is lacking sheers and, being right beside our bedroom, it looks strangely out of place (see photo below). I love the silk panels, but they make the room look beige. Take a look – same paint colour, same light, but the bedroom looks so much whiter than the office:
Here’s a better shot of the sheers in our bedroom, from a rarely seen angle:
Even though the silk panels are pretty, I want the window coverings to blend into the walls more. I think it makes the windows look bigger and the rooms looks brighter. Plus, it disguises the fact that the townhouse windows are ALL different shapes & sizes.
Here is a snippet of the new fabric my mom & I picked out – it has more and less sheer sections so we are working on a more unusual system so the sheers will block more light when needed (I don’t want the sun shining in my eyes while I am at the office desk). I’ll keep you posted as we figure out a system.

See? Sheer obsessed! In addition to our bedroom, sheers hang in the L-shaped dining room & living room. The guest bedroom, as you know, but also the front hall which has sheers similar to the guest room, fitted to the narrow window beside the door.
