More Sheers in my Office/Sitting Room

Last week, I showed you all how the new curtain sheers turned out on our big windows in the family room.

check out THIS POST for more info on this space
 We were so impressed with the quality of the sheer panels and the breeziness (totally a word) they added to that room that I really wanted to put them somewhere else.

So long story short, we chose them for the family room moreso for function rather than something pretty I picked out (I wanted to add some texture and make the windows look more "finished", but didn't want to block the light in there or add any heaviness) and lucky for us, we kind of fell in love with how they look.  They gave the room a more luxe and "complete" feel.

So I started thinking about why I hadn't added drapery to my office/sitting room and found it to be a more "functionality" situation as well.

Here's a waaay back shot of that room...


See the transom windows (the little bare windows above the windows)? Well I didn't want to cover them with heavy drapery. I also didn't want to see the backs of the curtains from the outside of the house through them.  The transom windows are SO pretty to me, but I didn't want to block them.  Since they're a part of the entire window themselves, I wouldn't even think of putting the curtain rod below them (I'm a curtains to the ceiling kind of gal anyway) so I had held off for a while.  I knew the windows needed something though, because they seemed a little bare.

So again, the same sheer panels just made sense.


I purchased four, but decided to skip the ones on the inner half of the windows because I didn't want to move out the little table for them to fall behind. I think it looks so much better!

I'm pretty happy with them, however, they are a bit long and puddle at the floor a bit more than I'd like, so I will definitely hem them a bit.
I've also decided to replace all the regular blinds on the front of the house with pretty white plantation shutters. So stay tuned for that... ;) I cannot wait to get those up!



 Waylon loves to nap on the rug in this room...



Not sure I would consider the whole half curtain look for most windows, but I think it works in here, especially since the windows are so tall and thin and close together. Also because the panels themselves are so sheer and look so light and airy anyway, it helps them look a little more balanced.
They're just so easy.
These are the ones I got (in winter white). I think I may have linked to the wrong ones in the previous post about these, but I fixed it!

So what do you all think?? I hope you guys are having a wonderful week!!

  10. I love how luxurious and resort-like sheer curtains can be... just so lovely. We have some sheers in our master bedroom... I love how light, yet cozy they feel... and I really love to wake up to the sun shining through in the mornings.

  15. Love this! Your home looks super cozy, I'd never go out! I think the transom windows look great without anything on them, I've always believed that was the point but I see a lot of people putting curtains on them and I just never like it, I'm with you on bare little windows haha. X

  16. I'm noticing your circular mirror obsession now! haha I love the sheer drapes, definitely not a room you want to block light from when it's painted the warmer tones.

    Can't wait to see your shutters, would also love a before an after of the rooms you have worked on. We are in the process of buying our own home however for the mean time i will live my home DIY vicariously through you.

  19. You have impeccable taste! So classic and timeless! I'm curious to know how you manage to keep it so perfectly clean with your long haired furry member of the family? :)

  20. These are awesome. I like that you only used them on the outside's of the windows. Great job. It really adds a home improvement look without totally a total remodel! Great job!

  21. I am DYING to know how you keep your home so clutter free. Seriously...down to the lamp wires, mail you need to keep, office clutter ( I work from home and my home office is a wreck at the end of the day), kitchen necessities, etc. I am obsessed with how perfect you seem to keep everything!

    Also- dying to know where you find your coffee table books! They're everywhere and I LOVE THEM! As a reader, I love books and notice them in most every room you post photos of! Are they random finds or do you specifically shop for certain ones?! Do tell!
