Very happy with these new roman shades. They were fairly easy to install. The weight was heavier than I had imagined. Like others have said, they do not totally block the light, but let a soft light through, which is perfect for our living room. They would look especially good in a "tropical" themed room with palm trees, etc. Very easy to pull up with the cord, too, which is better than some roman shades I have experienced that stick when you pull on the cord.

These shades seem to be carefully assembled from mostly natural and sustainable parts. The built-in valence and roman-style draw make these much more attractive than cheap roll-up matchstick blinds. They filter light which doesn't provide complete privacy or totally darken rooms, but they're fine for most purposes. One word of warning: the specified size is actual and not nominal, which means that a 39-inch blind is NOT going to work if you try to mount it INSIDE a 39-inch window frame. The good (-ish) news is that it's possible to cut 1/2 inch off one end or the other, but it's not real easy. I recommend these without qualification for outside mount and provisionally for inside mount.
