Mid-Century Net Swatch

Net curtains were used in almost 100% perfusion during the mid-century years in the United Kingdom and continued to be popular up until the turn of the century when, in many cases, they were replaced with blinds.

I think nets were very much taken for granted and probably not a lot of time was spent on choosing and most of the designs seemed to echo those of the pre-ware days. However, it is fun to make them and try to get them to look real and so I have spent some time designing and modelling to create the net curtain set above. This room is lifted from my 1960s bedroom set which you will have seen before.

If you would like to see larger versions of these designs and my other work then you can do so on my Flickr page, a link to which is here
