I really like the fun print but the background color is not white. It is a natural canvas/muslin color. I have a black and white bathroom and had to return it.
I bought 3 sets of valances as I was not sure what would look best in the kitchen. In addition to this one, I chose one with a brown background with brown & aqua leaves and another set was the ivory with French script valances with black piping. All three valances were beautiful and exceptional high quality. I chose to keep the Document Fossil trimmed in dark brown with a light beige or "natural" color because it was more subtle and not as busy of a pattern as the others. Overstock showed the valances I chose pulled straight across the window. Unless the bottom of the valance has the "S" curve on it, it is not attractive stretched just straight across. I bought 2 panels for two large windows side by side with one drapery rod and the valances are slightly gathered since there was excess fabric. I bought a third valance to go over a smaller window and I also gathered that one. The gathered look on the valances look so much more expensive and unique than the fabric pulled straight across. I am extremely happy with the Document Fossil valances and the other two patterns that I ordered were beautiful as well. One cannot find any valances anywhere close as beautiful and as high quality as these in a store. Most stores do not even carry valances any longer.
I recently purchased two of these valances (with the black edge) to put side by side in the large opening (over a bar top) between my kitchen and living area. They look amazing, gives it a nice cafe/bistro feel, which is what I was going for. They are a light natural linen/oatmeal color, and lined which gives it a more professional/crisp look once hanging. The pattern is great so that when I placed them side by side, even though the words don't exactly match up, they blend together and you can't even tell they are two separate pieces. Definitely recommend!
