I bought these in the blue, which is a shimmery almost-aqua color. I love it. The curtains were well made. I would have bought them in wider width, if that was an option, as they pull taut over my 100 inch window. They look beautiful when open, framing the window. I have heavier sheer curtains underneath, and blackout honeycomb shades. Overkill, I know. These would be okay for room-darkening, but their value to me is in the lovely, heavy drape on either side of my window.
These drapes were so beautiful that I purchased another pair. The blue is as described, a greyed, steel blue with the chocolate brown which is exactly what I was looking for. They perfectly matched a slipcover I bought a couple of years ago for my love seat. They hang beautifully and feel much more expensive than they were. I did not need lined drapes as the windows have honeycomb shades to control the light. I also bought pillows to match and they make the room look just spectacular!
In advance of the summer blast of heat in my contemporary (too many windows) home, I have been buying these for every room. These will qualify for energy credits on taxes. I pair them with honeycomb black out blinds for maximum heat blockage. This combo also works to keep heat in during our harsh winters. The fabric is heavy and luxurious feeling. I run them through two cycles on my steam touch up cycle in my dryer prior to hanging. That's it. I wish they had more colors and prints available. I've been dressing them up with valances in some of the living areas. I love these and will buy them as long as they are offered. Another plus to these, they glide easily to open after the worst of the sun has passed to enjoy your views.
