I spent a lot of time looking for insulated drapes that are gorgeous and classic. These are perfect! I almost bought the ones with a cranberry stripe since my kitchen is cranberry and I wanted to bring that color into the living room but I was worried that it might be a bit much so I bought these instead. I love the quality, feel, and look of these. They are heavy (not too heavy just heavier higher quality than I expected) and they look great in my living room. I didn't buy the length to pool on the floor like the photo but I like the length I bought and I pulled them back with a off white tassel pullback. I hung them up right out of the package and they did have a bit of a wrinkle at the bottom which stayed but I am not fussy about that. I just took them down and hung up the sheers for summer and although I love the sheers I miss the elegance of these drapes. The color and look is exact in the photo the only surprising thing to me was the high quality and weight. I remember reading one review that said her decorator bought these or someone used them for staging a house and that made me buy them. WOW! I am so glad I did!!! The fact that they are insulated is great too. I will say that I don't like the look if they are not tied back so make sure you plan on tying them back. We simply untied them at night for energy saving purposes and that worked well this winter.
