I love the fact that these blinds have no cords to get tangled. I hung 3 beige blinds myself in about 15 minutes. The beige is more of a light yellowish gold color, but works well with my decor. I will be purchasing more of these from Overstock.com as they carry all of my window sizes FYI: There is a small clear bracket that snaps on to the middle of the bottom, so it keeps dirty fingers from soiling the blind when moving it up and down. I had purchased these type blinds from another store and really liked that feature, but was unsure if it would be included until I received the blinds.
