I wanted to replace my old faded living room curtains. The ocean-view room has a darkish blue accent wall and dark green/blue carpet. On the basis of color, I was going to buy the blue, but I thought more about it and finally went for the Cypress. The Cypress turned out to blend perfectly, and the rings have a kind of nautical hint that perfectly complements the view from the windows. I know you can't really tell the color from the screen image, so I was taking a bit of a chance, but it worked out great.
