I'm going to try to help with color as it is just so hard to tell online. The picture on my computer is such a nice bright orange. As others said, and I did take it into account before I ordered, the color is much darker than what you are seeing. More like a dark copper. Very pretty, again, as others have said, but so dark and so coppery brown. I then placed an order for the same curtains in Poppy Field thinking they would be lighter. They are, but just barely and somehow dull in comparison. I kept the Blood Orange ones until the Poppy Fields arrived and had them side by side. The colors were barely different but Poppy Fields had less red hues and was dull. Kind of like a brand new penny without the shine. I bought these for a new house so I haven't hung them yet. I do think they will be beautiful because the quality is very nice. They are very heavy, lined and the material feels great. I am looking forward to seeing them on the windows.
I can't say enough about how impressed I am with the look and feel of these panels. They are elegant and ooze luxurious. As for the color, on my monitor it appears a brighter orange than the actual panel. To give you an idea of the color, it is more of a rust color, closer to the color of old blood..more brown undertones than orange. Luckily despite the colors being darker than I anticipated, they worked perfectly in my home. The faux silk look so luxurious, much more rich looking than the cost associated with the panels. A couple of key things to note: 1. The color is closer to rust than orange. The panels have strong brown undertones. More like old blood colored than orange. 2. The lining on the panels is white. 3. The wrinkles do not easily fall out (I had the dry cleaner press the panels ) 4. In a well lit room, they ooze luxury and elegance...there is irregular knotting on the panels (very small) that gives it that authentic silk look and feel.
The curtains were beautiful the moment I set eyes on them. Their color was rich and vibrant. When I installed them they brought out the color of my room while adding a touch of pure elegance. The fabric is sturdy giving the curtains depth. I love them!
When I opened the package, I thought these would definitely be going back. They are darker and redder than in the picture but once I put them up to see if they blended in the room, they looked great. I received lots of compliments over the Holidays on them. Very pleased.
