The basic appearance of these panels is really lovely. Soft, shimmery,. gifts a nice soft touch to the room. The reason I give it 4 stars is because I think the description is quite misleading. It references these panels darkening the room. Not a chance. Fortunately, i bought them to curtain off a an otherwise unsighlty storage area so for that purpose they are fabulous. However, if I had bought them to put on my windows in the hopes that they would darken the room or stifle noise, I'd be sorely disappointed. They are very light and if you are looking to give a room that nice airy feeling while still getting privacy, it's a good way to go. On the color, be aware that the sage is not quite sagey. It's a bit more brown/gold then i expected. I fact, i first thought they'd send the antique gold and ask them to pelase resend the correct ones. As I'd ordered both colors, once the gold arrived I could tell the difference but I wouldn't call it sage. More of a shimmery olive. Also a weird thing about these is that the top portion where you put the panel on the rod isn't standard for all colors. In the sage it is divided into 2 sections but the gold is only 1 section so if you ahng them side by side, the lengths are slightly off and if you look carefully, so is the top. Considering the price and length, still worth it I think but just something to keep in mind.
