I was worried about buying a comforter without seeing. I had a curtain set I was trying to match so I was hoping it would work. It does! The brown is a little more Milk chocolate, I was looking for something a little darker, but there isn't that much brown so it works. The comforter has a sheen to it so it seems lighter in high light areas (obviously) I did notice that there were some loose threads when I took it out of the package. BUT it did NOT effect the product, it just seems as if they didn't cut it off when finishing. Overall great for my needs, and I would buy it again!
