These shower curtains(I bought 2)are beautiful! They have a lovely sheen that you can't see in the photo.The colors are true to the photo. I use the 2 and tie them back with a perfectly matched tie-backs to show the newly glass tiled walls around the tub in brown and biege. It looks fabulous!
It was a little expensive, but I wanted it to match the bedroom. I put it in the dryer with a damp towel to get the wrinkles out when it came. It's exactly like the picture. I don't know how to describe the blue, but if you want to get towels to match, you need to take it to the store with you.
This is a good quality curtain. The colors shown in the picture depict the curtain I received. The brown, blue and tan pieces at the top and the tan piece at the bottom is "ruffled" and has more of a sheen then middle brown section. The different sheens give it a great look. As with most "silk" curtains it is slightly "see through."
