The bamboo is multicolored and matches my decorating perfectly! I bought three different sizes for different windows in the same room. One of them is 75 inches wide, and the pulley system works great. I was a bit surprised by the weight. I was expecting bamboo to be a little lighter. Also, these are inside mounts. I had to get on a live chat with someone from the website to find that out, it's not listed in the item description. I was able to install them as an outside mount, it just took a little adjustment. It def. makes a difference if you're tight on space.
