I purchased four panels in "Natural", one at a time, throughout the year. The first three were the lovely, bright yellow/gold that is pictured on this site but the final one (the only one purchased online and not in-store) is a darker, muddier shade of gold. Before receiving the fourth curtain, I couldn't understand how some of the reviews described the "Natural" color as anything but desirable; however, now I'm inclined to agree- the darker shade is definitely not as pretty. In the rush of the holidays, I was too excited not to keep this panel, perhaps hastily choosing a complete set over a perfectly matching one. In retrospect, I see that the difference in hue is substantial enough to have warranted an exchange.
That being said, I am still in love with these curtains and get nothing but compliments on them. They really "make" the room and look enchanting from outside as well as in, creating a warm, inviting glow.

I just LOVE these curtains. They are gorgeous. I ordered 6 panels of 108 inches in Ivory for our sunroom. We have a lot of industrial style furniture, dark leather items, and dark wood. I wanted curtains that would soften the room a bit while also going well with a darker industrial style. These fit the bill PERFECTLY. I like the natural feel of the ivory color (doesn't feel too "girly"). The sun travels through the curtains in such a way that the floral pattern is illuminated. Stunning!

Too dark for the hubs; I'm SO SAD to return!
I love, Love, LOVE these curtains. All the reviews are right. I should have read better though. The "white" part of this curtain really is much darker than I was anticipating - even after reading almost all the reviews. I would say it's about two shades darker than the second picture (from the left) that the website provides. Our comforter is a very WHITE and navy blue pattern (I was mixing patterns in the room) so it's not going to work for us though I love the curtains so much I really want to keep them. My husband was the voice of reason, "You're already mixing two patterns and now they're not even really the same colors." Sigh. I was trying to figure out another room for them, including my living room, but I don't think it will work there either. Sigh again.
I was looking for fun curtains and these are the only ones I could find that I liked. When they arrived, I was so happy to see that the colors are accurate in the picture. The top which is not shown in the picture has a tab top construction but it's sewn down so it does not show. They look amazing hung up and like an expensive drape. (well I guess they are expensive) I'm glad I splurged on these. I have a wall color that matches the large limey green flower. I really like the navy blue accent color in there and it may be difficult to tell but there are also teal leaves in there as well. Lots of fun colors to work with. Also a very nice lining. It lets in plenty of light but is still private. Extremely pleased with this purchase. Well worth the splurge.

I have been searching for fabrics to use as a roman shade in my master bedroom and decided to order the Kalei curtain. The weight of the material is perfect and does not wrinkle too easy. It comes with a pretty decent lining already sewn in. The pattern is true to the image and is gorgeous in person. I absolutely love the colours!

Lovely, Airy and Perfect
I had been eying these curtains online for months and finally took the plunge and bought them in raspberry! I waited so long to purchase them because it seemed a bit pricey for 2 panels but I just couldn't find anything I liked more than these. I am very happy with them! They arrived quickly and were exactly what I wanted for our bedroom. They look lovely! And the extra liner in the back is great for privacy. They let a lot of light in but you can't see through the curtains from the outside.
We have a small White bedroom with a large wood head board these curtains did just as I expected they made the room come together. One thing the picture does not show is the edging. There are sequence and beads which was an added bonus.

Gorgeous , unique!
These curtains have transformed our bedroom into a place of intrigue and mystique. They don't provide much light-filtering, but we have shades behind them, so not a problem. In fact, the light filtering through the cut outs looks beautiful and lends a subtle shimmer to the sequined edges. I think they're a little bit saucy, late Victorian/slightly raffish Arts & Crafts. As you can tell, I'm rather taken with them!

This curtain definitely darkens the room but I'm using in a first floor powder room that is done in deep tones. I love the way the sun streams through the cutwork. Perfect textile for my jewel box bathroom. Love it.
I was looking for a neutral curtain that had a little big of spunk. These fit the bill perfectly! The color is a neutral-y, muslin-y type of color, the material is light enough to let light through with some fibers woven through to give it that bohemian look, but my favorite thing about these curtains is the embroidered, sequined shapes.. Its really pretty and interesting without being too over the top. The colors of the embroidered shapes are light and dark grays, a pale blue, and a mustard yellow... all muted colors that will go with many decors.The sequins are subtle, you cant really see them unless you're really up close. I would highly reccomend these!

These curtains are absolutely beautiful. They are the perfect addition to my dining room. Very high quality with nice details. They have a lot of texture - shimmery embroidery throughout and velvety round circles near the top. Delicate and pretty against my light green walls. I highly recommend these curtains.
Very happy with these. I ordered the navy and the colour is very accurate. The material is thicker and softer than expected. They're almost like a velvet, only a little less plush. They're in my bedroom and keep most of the light out. All in all, very happy!
These are stunning in person, the color is more bronze than the brownish metallic color shown in the photo. The quality is excellent, they are solid and well-made. I have these with the bronze rod and they look amazing.
Curtains have a way of polishing off any room of the house. Being the incurable magpies that we are, we especially gravitate towards curtains that are embroidered, appliquéd and flocked, as they have a way of injecting levity and energy into your space. In addition to considering the palette, texture and opacity of your curtains (remember: a curtain's truest function is to filter the sun!), be sure to pay mind to your curtain hardware. From colorful glass and ceramic finals to burnished brass and iron rods, today's hardware choices are anything but staid. This season, we take a particular shine to those curtain panels and curtain hardware inspired by nature - think falling leaves, blooming flora and scurrying
