The curtains arrived today and were EXACTLY what I was hoping for and expecting - great quality and very beautiful! The shimmery fabric and creamy off-white, dark plum and silver/gray colors perfectly compliment my 3 cream walls and 1 dusty light plum feature wall. I found the colors depicted in the photo to be very accurate with the cream color of the curtains contrasting with the very white baseboards as shown in the photo. The other customer reviews were invaluable in helping to choose this particular product. I purchased a total of 6 panels and 1 valance to use in my master bedroom and bath. Two will be used over my shower and the other four (2 on each side) will be placed on tension rods on either side of my enormous antique armoire which stands in front of and covers my bedroom window. I didn't need the use of the window because I have two large skylights overhead that provide more than enough light. This has allowed me to created the illusion of an additional closet behind the curtains, spanning the entire 12 ft wall (wall, curtain, armoire, curtain, wall). The valance will be cut up and made into pillows for my bed - I can't wait to see the finished product! I wouldn't hesitate recommending these to my friends. The shimmer of the fabric adds a rich and light quality that is just what my antique bedroom set needed to bring it into this century.
