I wanted gray curtains with a pattern and that;s what I got, but the curtains are a very very light gray. So light that when its sunny out, they look white and you can't even see the pattern. They block very little light, and only at night, can you see a faint pattern. The pattern and the color of the curtain looks much darker than in reality.
Very nice curtains! After looking for nearly a year, I thought I would end up making some but then found these on Overstock and they are perfect. AND...were less expensive than if I were to make them myself! I bought 4 sets of these - one set came with a flawed/damaged panel, but Overstock QUICKLY sent a replacement! Their customer service is great!
BEWARE - I purchased these curtains because they advertised them as "Block the outdoor light and reduce exterior noise" they are thin and see through!! I've opened them and ruined package so unable to return them. Not a happy camper!! I could have purchased these at **** ***** for half the price I paid here.
The quality is pretty good, I ordered two sets (so four panels total) and there were some very small flaws, but not noticeable when curtains were hung. The sheen is more shiny than I thought. Not really, really shiny, but not like cotton. Just a little more formal feeling than I was expecting. The biggest surprise was that the stripes were not white. I expected there to be a white stripe on a grey background, but the stripes are light grey and high sheen (as compared to lower sheen of other part of fabric). When you hang them and the light shines through, the stripe do show up, which is why we are keeping them. They do not block much light (are not lined), which is actually good because they are in a common area which we want to be light and airy. Overall, nice curtains, just not quite what I was expecting.
I absolutely adore these curtains. I have them hanging in our main living room along our large picture window which spans about 144inches. I also have them in my dining room along a bay window. They block out light perfectly not allowing others to see inside your house at night. I have these in the dove grey color. The pattern is subtle but adds a pop of almost a "shimmer" against the reflection of light in your house at night. I actually ended up purchasing another set to have on hand in case I need more someday!! There is no way you will be able to beat this price for the value. I did not have an issue with differing lengths like other reviewers had mentioned.
I ordered 2 sets of the ice blue for my living room window. It's a pretty shade of blue with a slight greenish undertone. These are shimmery/ slightly metallic looking, but the effect is nice rather than gaudy, and it goes well with my subdued beachy look. I get tons of compliments on these and everyone tells me they really tied the room together. Not light blocking, but these do provide light minimization by day and privacy by night.
I have huge windows - 3 sets of them, and loved the economy and width of these curtains...plus the color and design look great in my room! The pattern does "disappear" during the day with the light coming through the window, but I'm enjoying the lovely pattern in the evenings! And I love that they're so easy to open and close.
