I was a little hesitant to purchase this after reading the reviews. Many people said the colors were off, but I have to disagree. I have this same color scheme in my master bath and bedroom already, but we purchased a duvet and needed a cover with these colors (blue, chocolate brown and cream) and I wasn't disappointed, I'm not sure where people got grey and black from. The thread count of the set probably is low (maybe between 200-300, they don't mention in the description what it is) but for the price I wasn't really expecting a 500 thread count or anything. I received pretty much exactly what I expected to get and am happy with it. I searched high and low for a modern looking set with these colors for a reasonable price and this was the best I found.
Many of the reviews talk about colors being off. I though they were very much like the photo shows. The brown is dark brown, but not black, and the blue is as in photo. I bough king size, which is too large fo rmy bed, shams are huge and not for ordinary pillows. It is very soft. It wrinkles a little, but I am too lazy to iron it. Duvet is great and doesn't show the pattern of the blanket inside.
Unfortunately, these colors are very muted. I was looking for something more vibrant and this was a real disappointment. I'll lose my Club points if I return it, + return shipping costs, so I think one of my kids just got their Christmas present early ;-)

Hated it. There was no color to this, it was flat and there was really no teal and the brown was really light. Sent it back without even taking it out of the package.

I was looking for a simple patterned cotton duvet. This is just that. It's lightweight and simple. I love it! Some reviews I read said that the color in the image was off. I'd say it's pretty close- maybe just a little more grey rather than beige.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? pretty good- a little more grey
I did like it, but I was not to crazy about its color. the brown color is more greenish brown than chocolate. I still like the feeling of it and averything else. Washes great and minimun wrinkling.

The pattern is classic. As was mentioned in previous comments the colors are on the grayish tint with brown, baby blue and an almost gray-white. It was relatively easy finding matching sheets of brown and blue. Overall, the pattern is classic yet modern and perfect for those like myself who live in an urban apartment in New York City or elsewhere. I recommend this to those who want a young, hip and modern feel to their bedroom or guestroom.
You get what you pay for. Fabric is scratchy- probably 200 thread count. The colors are more like baby blue, espresso, and light gray (definitely not white/ivory). Not that upset to send back plus how could I fit it back into the plastic cube it came in?!
Although the description colors are slightly off, the duvet is still very pretty and goes well with the dark furniture in my room. The brown stripes are really really dark and the blue is almost an "icey" blue. But overall really great quality and I'm very pleased with it. I would suggest not buying it if you are trying to match it to a specific color wall, because the colors are darker than they say they are.
I was a bit nervous when buying this, after I had read the other reviews about the colors being off. When I got it in the mail, I was ecstatic. It looked just like the picture. The dark brown really is dark brown, the light blue is light blue, and the white is whitish. I would definitely recommend getting this. It looks AMAZING in person, and will look amazing in my dorm room this fall :). Very androgynous as well.
Great price, good quality. Love the design. I read other reviews that said the color was off. When I opened it at the office under the fluorescent lights, I thought the same thing... But when I got it home and put it on the bed it looked just as I had hoped. No complaints at all. Fast shipping, too.
