Lovely Linen

I adore linen curtains and would probably have them in most rooms in my home if I could. Here are some beautiful rooms featuring lovely linen curtains.

I think that linen curtains look best hung on simple iron rods.

These curtains compliment this room perfectly.

I love these sheer ones below, billowing in the breeze.

These are a perfect match to the grey toned wood of the table.

 I love the way these let through filtered light.

Here they are used on a four poster bed. Gorgeous.

These work beautifully on the tall, narrow doors.

And here they are used with great success in a bathroom.

The perfect solution for these high ceilings and narrow windows.
