Linen Curtain Ideas… And Some Linen Look Fabrics
This week’s linen curtain theme is inspired by two separate projects where the clients wanted something to round off the room and soften the sun, without creating a thick atmosphere and compromising on any of the natural light streaming in through large wooden sliding doors.
There couldn’t be a more perfect fabric than sheer linen to welcome summer luncheons and cool, breezy evenings into your home. The understated, sophisticated look offers countless décor ideas and advantages and is often coveted for their breathability and the light, airy feel they create.
Unfortunately pure linen has also received a bad rep due to the delicate fabric’s severe reaction to the South African sun. Its tendency to disintegrate after extended sun exposure seems an awful shame when considering the fabric’s high price. To counter this, people have turned to linen look Polyester / Cotton / Linen blends and manufacturers have recently perfected even a 100% Polyester textile to the point where none of the synthetic shine and stiffness remains.
