Barely-There Drapery

“People are really loving the airy, ethereal effect that yards of sheer fabric can create,” says Calgary interior designer Reena Sotropa. “Wall-to-wall sheers will finish off a space beautifully without making it feel too stuffy. This, in combination with the soft, diffused light that results, makes sheer drapery a winner.”
