I would have put 5 stars, if the color was as seen in the picture. Because I love my new curtains! I bought these yellow curtains for our dining room. I was redoing it, and I wanted some cotton, clean lines, and clear (but not super bright lemon yellow) curtains. I saw these and thought "perfect!" When I recieved them, the color was not true to the online picture. I was expecting a nice mustard/citrus color, but when I got the curtains, they definitetly had a greenish hue to them. I must be honest and say that I was initially very disappointed with the color. I was convinced that they would look old and very 70's (in a bad way.) I thought that I wouldn't be able to use them, since I had been counting and decorating based upon a "clear mustard/citrus." I grudgingly put them up on my curtain rod, absolutely certain that I would hate them, and that they would clash. I was very pleasantly surprised that when they were hung, they lost their "old and gross 70's" look, and turned BEAUTIFUL! They looked more yellow-gold when they were hung and stretched out (and with some natural light.) To my surprise, they actually ended up going perfectly in the room, and they matched the painting and artwork that I had decorated with. My Dad described them as "gold, with some green in it." My mom was convinced that they were "chartreuse." My sister and I call it "yellowish-gold, with a slight green hue." I am going to buy another set to fill up the space. That is how pleased I am with them. If you are looking for clear yellow, exactly as the picture shows, these curtains are not for you. They definitely have a green hue to them. Having said that, don't be scared by the above use of the word 'chartreuse.' I absolutely hate chartreuse, but I LOVE these curtains. They are a beautiful unexpected color to use! It goes great with more clean-lined decor, since it could be "mistaken" for a 1970's color. The thicker fabric hangs beautifully. I do not need any extra sheers to block out light. I love the "cotton" look vs. a silk curtain. I would recommend these!
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? The color on the site made the curatins seem as if they were going to be a clear, but not overly bright, yellow. But in actuality, they were a greenish-yellow; a mustardy/chartreuse.
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. The quality was very nice. They had some "weight" to them, so they hang beautifully.
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? All acurate, except for the color.
- Would you recommend this to a friend? Yes
