I want light, but filtered. I don't want to shut out the sun with shades (I removed the ones that were here), nor do I want to have to raise/lower shades every hour to adjust the light/view.
I have 9 windows and a sliding door. Due to the age of the house and slope of the ceiling, long curtain rods, unless white like the paint, would call attention to the imperfections. So, I think that rules out using floor-to-ceiling drapes to pull over the windows.
My windows are 72" long and to have inside mount white linen sheers, I'll need custom hemming.
Do you think sheer white linen (substantial weight, not wispy) will hold up okay?
