It’s embarrassing to admit this, but so much of my brain power has been devoted to sheer window treatments this week. I eat sleep and breath sheer window treatment ideas — okay, not actually so much sleeping since the thought of sheer window treatments are keeping me awake. No seriously, I lie in bed thinking about sheer fucking window treatments.
Mike’s living room is dark. Although it has three big windows, they only get light for a couple hours in the morning. So by noon, I find myself wanting to turn on the overhead lights sometimes, which is a total waste of energy. The poor lighting situation wasn’t aided by the dark blue curtains and heavy linen sheers that his previous designer hung. It felt like a cave.
The solution was obviously going to be switching out those heavy curtains for sheers. And OH WHAT A DIFFERENCE A SHEER MAKES:
The Bed Bath & Beyond at the Beverly Center is going out business (say THAT three times fast) and they’re having a massive sale. My mother (who wonderfully flew into town to help me with the move-in remodel) braved the madness, and somehow managed to find exactly the right number of the perfect neutral-colored sheers in all the right lengths.
Before my mom found the perfect sheers, I purchased this macrame wall hanging from Urban Outfitters…
I absolutely love it in the space…
But Mike thinks they look “too grandma-y.” So down they came and the sheers went back up. Ah well, I’m sure this wall hanging will also look awesome in the room that’s going to become my “office.”
But for now, I’m writing happily in the living room where warm beams of sunlight filter golden through the windows. And I’m feeling more and more at home every day.
