Uptown Scarf Valance
Stiff & Wrinkled
I purchased 3 of these window scarves; two for our formal living room windows and one for our dining room window. The dining room is right next to the formal living room (so both rooms are close together and look into each other). The first scarf I received had some stains on it. It almost looked like someone handled it with dirty hands. I took that one to the store for a return and ordered another one online (they don't carry these in our local store). The second one I ordered did not have these stains on it. I ordered Red scarves to place over our white sheer curtains in both rooms. But because this scarf is so long, it overpowered the rooms. Also my husband did not like the shiny material. Everyone has different tastes so this scarf may not be for everyone but I liked that it is a shiny material. But the material is difficult to work with. It's stiff, which makes it hard to drape, so it's not user friendly. I washed & dried the stained one to try and get the stains out (which didn't work). Washing & drying it softened the material quite a bit which took most of the stiffness out of it. But you would still need to iron it to get all the wrinkles out (whether you wash & dry it or not). Hope this review is helpful.

Got this for my 3 yr old's room since it was the only blue scarf I could find. When I opened package, it looked like it belonged in an adult's room, it's a shiny, thick, rich looking fabric. It's beautiful, just doesn't exactly fit in a kid's room. It's now been hung up for a couple weeks and I've grown to love it, but at first glance, it was a surprise.

What a graceful color
I chose purple because of the grace and beauty it gives my living room. The Saviour wore the color with grace.

Uptown Scarf Valance
I bought this scarf to go with another set of drapes. I have had it for a couple of months now and they are very nice. I have washed and put these in the dryer just once but they turned out nicely. They did not wrinkle or fade. The front has a nice silk look and the back a satin finish. I have been thinking about buying the panels for another window but I know they are not thick enough to keep out enough light to put up in the bedroom. But the scarf looks wonderful on the window that doesn't get much light.
