In this great Donghia ad, there's an interesting interplay of solids and sheers.
I was also lucky enough to see this room in a New York designer showhouse in 1988. The room was by Andrée Putman. When the photo appeared in Metropolitan Home, I ripped it out and have saved it all these years!
In a Florida living room, I used a plaid sheer from Schumacher to work with the needle point rug and the mix of antique and new furnishings.

I used a handkerchief-weight cotton with a window pane check by Schumacher in this Long Island bedroom.
I love the inventiveness of San Francisco designer Angela Free. In this room for the San Francisco Decorator Showhouse, "elegance abounds with a curvy lambrequin of warm white linen edged in green hanging over linen sheers." (photography by Michael Venera for Traditional Home)
And where's Scarlett, you may (or may not) ask. I almost left her out, but then remembered this confection of a dress she wore in the opening scene. Layers and layers of a floaty fabric conspired to create this attention grabber.
We still have more to explore with window treatments. Tune in next time.
Thanks for reading, everyone!
