I liked this so much that I ordered 2 more for the dining room. Looks great with stainless appliances. Definitely not a white background as mentioned by others. Mine is gathered a bit on the rod and looks nice as well. High quality fabric.
I am impressed with the quality of this valance. It was easy to put up and hangs nicely. As other reviewers have noted, the background is not white. I hung it on a window with white trim and grey walls. Alhough the valance is more of an ecru color, it looks fine.
This valance is very pretty, the quality of the fabric and the stitching is stunning. I hung this in my guest bathroom and I receive so many compliments. I wrapped a simple gray tassel around a guest towel that has almost the same exact print and it looks beautiful😉
