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!

These blinds definitely appear to be white in the photo but are actually a tan color....not at all like the picture. Very disappointed.

The quality was fine, the issue and why I returned the blinds was that the color was not a true ivory but actually a beige or tan. They did not coordinate with the paint trim color of the windows.

Nice looking, but not at all the color shown- this is very tan/bamboo colored. Only instructions are to hang inside a window frame.

Please be advised that the chocolate color you see in the OS ad is not the color you will get...It is more a light tan with some medium shaded tan accents. But, also know that this is the best deal you will get for these blinds based on their construction and ease of use and assembly!!! Just thought you should know to go with a darker blind if chocolate is what you are looking for:)

Given the price, wasn't expecting much but was pleasantly surprised. Nice green, tan and dark brown colors. While not exactly expensive looking, not cheap looking either. A good value.

The color does not match the picture by any stretch of the imagination. It appears a natural tan and brown tones in the picture and instead, the slats are a horrendous GREEN! When I try to return it, I find it is "non returnable". Waste of money and now I'll have to shop elsewhere. VERY disappointing.

I want to let you all know that you need to be sure that you don't mind ordering shades that will arrive much lighter in color than is shown on the OS.com advertisement...The ad shows the Tuscan shade to be a darker brown/chocolate color but, when I received mine, they are much, much lighter than they appeared in the photo. We're talking a light tan with some darker tan accents throughout. Thankfully, my curtains have this color in them or, I would have returned the shades the day I received them due to the color not being anywhere close to what they showed in the ad. The workmanship is top rate for the money you will be spending, just know that the color is not as it appears to be! Hope this helps...

I rarely purchase anything without seeing any type of a review. I couldn't find reviews of this product here on overstock or on other websites which is strange. These room darkening blinds are replacing a set of light filtering blinds. They look much better than the light filtering ones! As an added bonus, the backside of the blinds are white. This is good because I hate looking at colored blinds from the street. The white outer layer matches the white trim on my house which is awesome! My light filtering ones are a very dark tan and when the sun shines through them, it fills the room with the most ugly tan light. But these room darkening ones don't let in any light which is great! The new blinds themselves are also about an inch thicker than the old ones which is nice. It makes the whole unit feel like the quality is better. The only downside is the color... it's definitely not a dark tan like pictured. It's not my computer screen either.... I order a lot of blinds, curtains, pictures, etc online and this is the first product that has ever been off color wise. The color is maybe 3-4 shades lighter than what is pictured... the box actually states the color as "Cream". So Overstocks picture is definitely wrong. It's almost like a off white color with a slight bit of tan. I have dark tan walls and was hoping to match the blind color to the walls. But now the blinds are much lighter than the walls. It took me a few days but in the end the color no longer bothers me.... as a matter of fact I just ordered my second set of blinds last night for the upstairs.

I got these for my living room and I love them!! the are so pretty, and easy to hang. I thought the quality was wonderful, the way they block the light, yet still let some in is great. My walls are tan with cream drapes, and the blindes looked great. I had the regular white blindes before and these are so much better. I plan on getting them for the rest of my windows.

Blinds appear to be well made with solid construction. The instructions are slightly vague but hanging blinds isn't terribly difficult. There is more than enough included hardware to hang & mount them from the top or the back. My only complaint is that the color I chose, Pearl White, isn't exactly white of any shade, it's more of a tan or pale yellow.

This is a very nice shade for the price. I had done a lot of searching online and in stores for a simple roman shade in this size, and this is by far the best price I found. The color on the site is very true to the product...tan with shades of dark brown and cool green. The shades provide some privacy, but when it's dark out and a light is on in the room, these are fairly transparent.

The shades look fabulous in my kitchen. Nice tan, brown, and hints of green. Do not use the screws that came with the shades. I pre-drilled holes first, but when I went to back out a screw to straighten the mounting bracket, the screw stripped. The metal was very soft. I hope I never need to take them down. The shades are really nice but use your own screws.

I like these shades! These did not come with the green overtones (or undertones) expressed in other reviews. The primary colors are gold / tan / brown - though there are touches of green, and I could see how this color might be picked up in a green room. The shades are definitely rustic and fit in well with shabby-chic / country feel to my apartment. They do not completely block light when covering the windows. I would call them semi-private.

If you are looking for looking for something even close to white in color you will be disappointed with these. The color of the picture is not at all correct... these are more a dark beige, light tan color. I returned them before I even tried installing them because they were not the right color so I can't tell you about the quality or function of these blinds.

When I pulled this shade out of the box, I had to come t the computer to pull up the image. I couldn't believe I ordered so etching that's mostly tan when I wanted something that was mostly chocolate colored. The image shown here definitely does not show the true color of the product. So frustrating!

If you are looking for a shade to block out all light, this one is not for you. If, however, you are looking for a shade that creates a wonderful, natural look by gently filtering the light I heartily recommend this one. The colors in the shade are variegated shades of tans and browns - very natural and soothing. I bought two for my bedroom and I was amazed by how much the mood changed! I love these, will buy them again, and happily recommend them. Also, they were easy to put up, which is a real plus.

These are a very nice shade for the money. It should be noted they are a bit more creamy yellow than tan but not unattractive. Also they provide privacy but do not blackout light so on a very sunny window you will awake to the golden light of dawn. I would but them again and replace my more costly shades which are wearing out and going out of warranty. Like the concealed string cordless feature perfect for a safe home with pets or kids.

These shades are nice. The linen color was more of a light tan (which worked for our needs) however, if you order more than one, perhaps different sizes, they very well might come from different warehouses. I ordered three (two of one size and one a little wider) and the wider one came from a different warehouse with different fabric. All three were to hang side by side, so with different fabric, this was not going to work. Too bad...I had to return. Otherwise, these are nice shades.
