Summer: letting the sun in through the curtains

Summer is the time of the sun. It is unfair if you keep your drapes drawn and do not let the sunshine flow into the room! It is a gorgeous season to enjoy and you can soak in the sun whenever you want. Summer brings with it both its good side as well as bad side. While summer is a welcome change after the long and cold winter, summers can also get quite warm and uncomfortable at times. Throw in a little bit of moisture in the area and you will be sweating like crazy too in this season.

So, when it comes to choosing drapes for this season, go for something light and has a breezy feel to it. Do not go for dark shades at all. Simple floral prints work well too. The best curtains for summer are the ones, which allow just the right amount of light to filter in through them and block enough so that it does not hurt the eye. If too much sun is allowed to pour into the room, the room in turn will become hot! Summer curtains are always beautiful and elegant. Here are few ideas with summer curtains that you can try out:
