I was looking for a drape that matched an earthy terra cotta accent paint. I wanted that "new copper" type of look and they are perfect. I purchased the paprika color first which was also very beautiful but a little darker than I had in mind. It worked with the room color though. The spice drapes are absolutely elegant and bring warmth to the room. In the evening they appear a little darker. They definitely are not salmon or pinkish in hue. I'm getting ready to order a different color for my great room. I bought the 96 inch for a 9 foot ceiling and they pool very nicely.
These are nice curtains but there is no way they would be mistaken for silk. They feel more like a high quality polyester to me. They drape nicely and are weighted at the hems. The reason I dropped a couple of stars is because of the color. I ordered the spice but the color is nothing like spice and is nothing like the color on my monitor. I would describe them as dark raspberry as there is a lot of red in them. I was very disappointed but decided to keep them anyway and changed out a few other things in my bedroom to try and match them up. The curtains do reduce the light somewhat but not as much as I would have liked. They are definitely not 'room darkening'.
