First off, most def. not "white." They are beige. Secondly, the designs are black...I assumed (incorrectly) they were a dark blue. It would have helped if the website had the actual colors up there. Not true black out, but they are soft and seem to be made very well and help keep my living room insulated better. They're good curtains, albeit pricey, but they don't fit into my design like I anticipated. Probably all my fault. I'd recommend them for their nice look and softness, just know what you're buying first.
Beautiful curtains! Very elegant in my Bedroom, they are beige not off white, would have prefered then to be on the "whiter side" and they are not 100% blackout. But I really must like the look because I have overlooked these two items.
