I was nervous before the bedding arrived because other reviews said they were unhappy with the colors and felt it wasn't what the picture depicted. I picked this bedding because it was such a great deal for the set and I was looking for something with lavender colors. I also could tell that the print alternated with the brown and I liked that, since my daughters furniture is brown. When it showed up it looked just like the picture and I was really pleased. I'm not sure why others thought it was going to be black than brown or that the bedding was more pink. It's a really nice set if you want lavender and brown.
