I admit I was a little concerned ordering after reading comments about color etc. However, when I opened the box I was thrilled! The Blue is just a tad grayer than the photos but beautiful, complements the brown perfectly and the stitching really pops in person. The pillows and shams complete the look and I love that the bedskirt is a little quirky. I live in Florida so I didn't want a heavy comforter; this is a perfect weight and softness for sleeping even here. It really gave me the feel of upgrading my bed and bedroom and at an incredible price. No question in my mind I recommend this set!
