With the sunlight streaming in from the great outdoors, Summer 2016 offers the perfect opportunity to swap your heavy draperies for lightweight, sheer alternatives. As the sunshine-filled days turn humid and endless, window treatments for the season should be appropriately whimsical and carefree. Here are a few flawless ways to instantly update your curtains at home and soak up the beauty of another Canadian summer.
Enrich your space with sheer white curtains: If you’re looking to adorn your windows without the need for thick drapes, turn to flowing white curtains for the perfect effect. Meanwhile, the look of dark-painted wooden windows, off-white walls and dark brown furnishings helps to offset your sheer curtains.

Turn to sweet blue patterns: For decorating enthusiasts who prefer playful prints, accessorize with blue and white patterned curtains. In fact, the eye-catching and vibrant patterns can easily be paired with gleaming hardwood floors, a shaggy blue area rug and printed accent pillows.

Accessorize with pale pink drapes and all-white décor: Create a sweet and ladylike interior design statement with the look of soft rosy pink curtains and contrasting white accents. To truly showcase the white décor, decorate with a white vanity table, crystal chandelier and chic rectangular mirror.
