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!

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!!
