These look fabulous in my studio. A natural fit, just as described. I received them much quicker than expected and for half the price I could get them at my local home improvement store!

This is a pretty shade with minimal light filtering but when I got my blinds the color was quite a bit darker than advertised on the site. However, they look nice and I am semi-pleased.

This blind is suppose to be semi private but it is more private. Love it and love the colors. I would highly recommend this.

I have never used a roman shade before, but this bamboo shade lets just enough light into my breezeway, and created a earthy atmosphere.

I bought this shade for my bathroom and was disappointed with the greenish hue of this shade when I opened the box. I decided to hang it anyway since I have some green in my bathroom decor and I am happy with how it looks. I doubled it lenght way to give a little more privacy and I like how a little light still comes through. The bathroom window is frosted as and looks out over a private yard, but I wouldn't hang this shade - even doubled - in a window I wanted to provide privacy for.

I love my new blinds. They do allow light to shine through. I purchased a total of 9 blinds. All the pieces were included! They were easy to install and only took a few minutes. They are not perfect, but that is what I wanted. The overhang on top does not lay flat, but I have curtains over the top of them. For the price they do the job and are great!

The Rustic bamboo shades are perfect for my huge double windows in the great room. They were easy to install and let light filter in yet still provides privacy. The color is beautiful and goes well with our living room decor. The price beat all the locals hands down. I recommend these shades and purchasing on the o to all.

We were looking for some natural bamboo blinds that would allow some light into our very sunny dining room, but still allow us to see the view outside. We also wanted something that would go well with the various wood tones of our antique furniture and hardwood floors. These fit the bill perfectly and we are very pleased with our purchase. We're happy that these are made of sustainable bamboo as well. My husband is an engineer and thinks the brackets are well designed to be simple to install and adequately support the blinds. However, the wood trim on our windows is not very deep so it meant that the brackets over hang a bit. At first I didn't like this, but once the blind was installed it's hardly noticeable - just something to be aware of if you don't have very deep molding or trim to install them on (about 2"). The cords on the blinds seem to be a tiny bit thicker than some other roman blinds we have, which will hopefully make them more durable as we find cords tend to degrade in the sunlight. These are also available in two lengths, which is unusual for blinds at this price point, but great for us because we were able to order the shorter length for some of our windows and not have a thick unused portion at the bottom when they are open to the length of the window. As others have noted, these are a bit blonder than pictured and are not light blocking privacy blinds. This is fine with us and just what we were looking for.

I love the look of these shades with the natural wood trim in my house. They are very well made; especially for the reasonable price. I bought another one also; lots of sizes available. They let just enough light in when they are down and give reasonable privacy; I have them in my living room. I would not use them in my bedroom, though. I love the varied colors of the slats.

Great quality blinds, outstanding price. Packed and shipped properly with no breakage or issues. Sturdy hanging features with clear instructions for hanging either inside or outside window frame. They are a bit more colorful than pictured on my computer screen (colors can vary by monitor) -- with a tad more red/purple hue. But they're perfect for our living room. Light filtering in daytime is fantastic. Room is noticeably cooler when blinds are down. Visibility is blocked during the day. At night, they are still transparent, however -- the window is not as clear as if it had nothing on it, but the light from the inside of the house allows for muted see-through visibility from the outside. You could add (glue or staple) a thin panel of fabric to the backside of the shade, if preferred, to block visibility. Overall, outstanding value and product.

Just a note - This is NOT a privacy shade. It says as much in the description, so read carefully! I got this shade to fit a very large window in my living room, which faces a busy street. I layered it with sheers to provide more privacy at night, but still let in as much light as possible during the day. This shade has a great natural look to it, and I love that it's made with renewable materials. The quality of the shade is pretty good, and it pulls up and down easily so far, and was fairly easy to install with a cordless drill. I don't imagine it would be too bad to install one with a regular screwdriver. The shade is really stunning in the morning with light shining through it! The only issue I have with it is that the pull cord looks a bit cheap, and the color is definitely a darker, more honey-tone color rather than the very light beige pictured. The woven fibers look a bit "rustic" in places as well, but it's well constructed.

Very easy to install. We put these in our bonus room. Adds great texture while still letting in some sunlight.

I had four 5' windows in my barn office slash reception room, and had been looking at blinds/shades, window treatments at the big box stores. While a focal point room in my barn, similar in function as any office reception room, I was looking for function, form and style, but I could not justify or handle the price of $100 or more PER window! My sister had turned me onto O.co a year ago where I have found many wonderful and economical buys, I started my look for window treatments. When I found these bamboo blinds, similar to what I was looking at, for much higher cost at the big box store, I decided to take a chance. When I opened the box, I was stunned. These blinds are much prettier in person. My office is a dark plum color with contrasts of sage green/golden tan/wine red and these blinds in their natural bamboo color, coordinate, lighten, and tie everything together so well. Light filtering, true to size, easy to install for one person (40 something farm girl). I LOVE these blinds, have gotten a ton of compliments, and have recommended them to everyone. The biggest bonus for me- these blinds are of the same weight and quality as what I was considering at the other stores, and much, much, more economical!

I wanted blinds that would offer some screening without a loss of natural light. They were just what I needed.
