John Lewis Faux Silk Blackout Lined Eyelet Curtains
Bought for our spare bedroom which has a streetlight nearby. These blackout blinds keep the room dark and are of a high quality. They are more sea green than duck egg blue however previous reviews made me aware of this prior to purchase.

My home is so much warmer since I've had these curtains and they look lovely in my lounge. I'm very happy with the quality and service I received

keep bedroom dark
these blackout curtains are excellent. in my previous house I had expensive made
to measure thick curtains but they didn t keep the bedroom completely dark but
these JL curtains do plus after a good iron which was easy they look like expensive curtains. although others said the colour was wrong I thought they
were better than expected. I did get them longer than was needed and I did
think about taking them up but it wasn't the right type of material to do it
easily so make sure you order correct length.

Not the same colour as the picture
I went into John Lewis in Brent Cross and Oxford Street and checked the colour of these curtains, which like the image on the website, looks like a greyish purple. When I recieved the curtains they were most definitely light brown! So I went back to JL to look again and the lighting over the one's hanging still made them look purplish so I took a pack to a diffrent place under different light and then I could see that they were light brown. Beautiful curtains but I had to return them as they didn't match my scheme. Lengthy process with no happy ending!

John Lewis Faux Silk Blackout Lined Eyelet Curtains duck egg
Just to provide clarity for anyone buying this product - it is NOT a duck egg blue as the picture shows.
Despite the quality and style being second to none the colour is NOT as advertised & it is somewhat important when I have already decorated the rest of my room in blue.
If the colour was as advertised it would be 5 stars but because the pictures are 100% misleading it is nothing short of a disappointment.
The curtains are a dull evergreen. A nice enough colour but for anyone thinking of buying them yes, in this case the reviews are correct, and if you want blue you will end up returning these curtains.

Well made and does the job
I read the fuss about the colour and the wrinkles and ordered these curtains regardless and am pleased that I did as they are really lovely. They are greeny blue or bluey green depending on your focus and very pretty. Yes they were very wrinkled - not an issue because they ironed beautifully. They block the light completely and look great - a great purchase!

Lovely looking curtains
Hang beautifully and do a good job of keeping out the light. Very creased when they come out of the packaging

Beautiful curtains but wrong colour!
Like the other reviewers I love the quality of these curtains but the colour is not as described. They are jade green, and as such I need to return them. A shame, as the colour shown on line was exactly what I wanted. I'm a bit surprised that other reviewers have made these comments previously and yet no change to the web site has been made - not what I would expect from John Lewis.
