Spring is the time to let some light in and lace is the perfect peek-a-boo airy and light fabric to renew the romance of a room for the new season! Lace has been trending on runways and has a long history of high fashion. A quick fix for any room is to swap out your curtains with sheer lacy ones. Even with the blinds raised, the lace will provide privacy while allowing you to enjoy naturally refracted sunlight through a poetic mesh. Lace on a table has a similar effect, bringing a whimsical and feminine touch to the room.
