I purchased one of these shades for my bedroom and then ended up going back and ordering one for almost every window of my home!! They are beautiful and look very expensive. They also go with all types of decor, as the shade is comprised of multiple colors of wood. And the best part is that I was able to get window treatments for my entire home for the price of what ONE window would have cost through a custom retailer. I also managed to find a shade to fit every window for my home, despite having older model windows. I am thrilled with my purchase. Note they are light filtering blinds, which I wanted, but if you want a darker shade, I would still recommend getting these and adding a sheath behind like one reviewer suggested. The only slight negative is the cords are a bit long when the shade is raised, but I purchased some inexpensive cord ties and that works great.
