A semi-sheer fabric for summer decorating

Q: I’d like my living room to be more flexible in its design, and change with the seasons. Can you suggest any straightforward updates as we move into summer?


A: As well as switching cushions and throws for something summery, changing your curtains to a more lightweight fabric is relatively easy to do and can makes a big impact. Opt for a semi-sheer fabric rather than a full sheer, to retain some privacy: there are some beautiful decorative and patterned textiles in the showrooms, such as this ‘Noguchi’ embroidered example, by Casamance at Colony.
