Simply GORGEOUS! Elegant, velevet like laterial...I hung glittery gold Christmas balls in between each Grommett it looks STUNNING! (I got the bordeaux color). Some folks have complained 'they're too dark'....I dunno, it is typicallly my objective to make my room dark when I hang full blown drapes. To the person that said 'they let too much light in'....you must neighbor the sun? Or perhaps try closing them? :p Our room is pitch dark when they're closed. Wishing they had another size for other window....yet another A+ product from Groupon!
