This is hanging full length on the back of our kitchen door (which is also the back door of the house) at our home on the Jersey Shore. Having come from NY, this is appropriate for us. When you walk into the kitchen in the morning, you see NY. We have three other windows to treat and can't decide to get three more of these or mix it up and purchase the Brooklyn Bridge, St. Patrick's Cathedral, etc. The only drawback - anything with a design for the windows has to remain in the rolled up position, taking away from these beautiful patterns.

I had bought the Lady Liberty for one window and the Empire State Building for the other living room window.So what they don't match, the look is dramatic and looks great. After years of fabric covering windows and the expense, it is a pleasure to finally have something to cover the living room windows that looks awesome. The blinds are easy to install, just mount then on the 2 supplied hanging hooks. And of course Overstock processed the order in a very timely fashion.

When I unexpectedly found this blind I knew it would be perfect for us. An off red-color (deep coral or salmon) was just what I needed. I was looking for a covering for one large (48" wide) window in an alcove that needed privacy and would not be used or opened. I hung the blind so the phoenix is centered in the window. "George" as my husband named the phoenix, provides a "wow" factor and appears to be more of an art piece than a window blind. George looks far more expensive than he actually was. We are very pleased with the service (which was very fast) and the product.

These curtains were way beyond my expectations; I picked them out hoping they would match my comforter and new bed shams that I also picked out at Overstock.com. Wow.

I got this as a gift for my son and his fiance'. They love it and were very surprised by it. They are going to use it as a wall hanging in their new apartment. I like the soft look of the image on the bamboo.

We moved into a new apartment with lots of windows. The first blinds we bought were crap. These filter the light perfectly, are beautiful, and take about 5 min. to put up. I'll never buy anything else.

I was so looking forward to receiving these blinds, because I felt it would bring it all together; and that's just what they did. The color of the walls in the room we just did over are a dark sage green and my new loveseat is a spice red and once the blinds were put up, it was a spectacular addition. I just love the way they brought the whole room together. They are beautiful. The only issue as to why I gave 4stars is there is a distinct smell that has still not gone away.

For Matchstick blinds, these were about average. The good news was that the color was just as pictured; a pleasant neutral that would go with many things. The downside however, was the roll-up hardware. My husband and I are both engineers and had a hard time figuring it out. The instructions were some cryptic pictures that confused us more than helped. Perhaps we were just having an off day - but as we didn't like the look in our home - we sent back.

Absolutely beautiful. I purchased this to use as a wall hanging to cover the HVAC door in my apartment and it has made my living room look fantastic. I wish I had bought this weeks ago when I first saw it! I can't imagine why anyone would want to use this as a blind & have it rolled out of sight most of the time. The composition is a wonderful blend of reds, golds, browns & greens. It has given new life to my furniture. Buy this, you won't be sorry.

Just moved in to a new apartment and needed some curtains FAST before a friend came to visit and stay at my place. Originally, I was unsure if I made a wise purchase since I've never used Overstock before, but, I paid for the 2-day shipping and I ripped the package open when it was delivered!! I am MORE than satisfied and really happy! The curtains look great in my room -- I have an orange/white bed spread w/ other orange accents -- and give the space a funky, fun look. If I need to buy curtains like this in the future, I would definitely do it again. Even though the price is a little more than I'd like, I'd definitely buy these again in a heartbeat because no other online retailer has anything like it and the quality is great! **FYI to prospective buyers -- Overstock describes the curtain panels as "sheer," but they are not. You cannot see through them, nor do they block the light.**

Yeah - I don't like this product. Its not really working out for me. Part of it ( I guess) is my fault - when it came in the mail I tried to hang it up immediately but the hanging brackets were in a different spot than on the one I took down - so I just hung up one side for a day or two until I had time to drill new holes. In the few days that I had it up - one side got all stretched out from hanging unevenly. I thought that for sure all I needed to do was to hang it from the opposite side for a few days and it would even out but alas - no. Now its all slanted and uneven along the bottom and looks odd. You would think that no one would notice but in fact, they do. The worst part though, is that all the ugly hardware is exposed. Again - I my fault I guess - I should have looked at the photo more closely but these things usually have a flap of the blind material that goes over the hardware and hides it from view. This does not. It makes it look cheap. I should have sent it back but I am too lazy. I do like the color though and if they had just made an effort to hide the hardware I would be willing to admit that the slanty-ness is completely my fault but since they didn't - I am calling the whole experience - FAIR.

Colors were drab and washed out. I confused the front with the back. A complete disappointment. We threw it in the garbage.

I would like to hide the hardware at the top, but the colors are wonderful and I've been getting lovely comments from friends and family.

Lovely, my sister saw them while visiting and is now looking to purchase them. Why have a plain blind when you can ncorporate artwork. No need to hang pictures! Artwork already on the windows. So glad I purchased!
