I absolutely HATE it, our rental has it on nearly all windows and it makes me feel like an 80 year old with a perm just looking at it.
Do you like it?? When we moved in the landlord was boasting about how they had just purchased all new lace, why!?

Lace on windows...

Hate it too - our house had lace curtains things with floral drapes over the top. I pulled it all down and had no window coverings for 8mths while I saved for blinds.

I hate lace as well! I do have voile curtains to allow privacy with the windows open, but they are plain - no laceyness and they are bright colours in the kids rooms.
My mum loves her window doileys. I think my hate for them bred from there!

I think it depends on the styleof the house and furnishings. Our rental is renovated, with all wood floors. We have a 9 piece rustic style dining setting. DS has all wood in his room - wood entertainment unit, tall boy, toy box etc. In our room we have a 3 poster with all wood. So it suits the style of our house. I also find it's good for privacy while still letting the light in (we have a 2nd layer of curtains or blinds)

I never even thought of taking it off, we have thick curtains behind it as well but I agree delirium it is good for privacy.

I too can't stand lace curtains. They hold so much dust! My parents have lace blinds though which look really nice. It suits the style of house though.
I don't mind a plain sheer curtain though. Some have some nice modern patterns.

I hate them. And I hate when you go past houses and see them hanging but they're browning and all tattered! Yuk!

Yeah the browning tattered look isn't so good
