At the same time however, they aren’t heavy and overwhelming. No matter the type, embroidered or open weaved, they appear light and delicate. Also, with proper arrangement you can choose the amount of light you want to enter, if you place voile layer on layer you can block more sunlight than if you place it further apart. Also it’s good to keep in mind that embroidered is a little heavier and blocks more sun than open weaved.

If white isn’t really your thing it’s good idea to set on something more challenging, like intense and vivid colors. They can go well with more standardized interiors.
