I received the comforter today and was very unhappily surprised at what the taupe color turned out to be. It is not taupe, but actually a rosy brown color that has a LOT of pink in it. I have a peach and taupe color scheme in my bedroom and this is a horrible clash of colors with what I have. I am sorry that I ordered this item when it did not yet have any feedback . On the plus side, the fabric feels soft and smooth. The comforter itself is thin-- best used for spring and summer only. The zipper on one sham did not work correctly. This will not be such a good deal as I now will have to pay return shipping and a restocking fee. One piece of advice... read as many reviews as possible before ordering from Overstock.com. Not only about the product that you are considering, but the return process as well.
