These are lovely curtains. I have them in our great room on two sets of french doors leading to our screened porch. They are a beautiful soft sage green and the natural silk fabric is just beautiful. They are nicely lined with a thick cotton lining which does not block out light but does help with insulating. They definitely help keep out the cold during winter. I have them on curtain rings and a thick rod similar to the photo and they add just the right touch of class to our room.
