At first glance, this bedding set looks to be a deep rich color of charcoal/gray/black which is what I wanted, but when I read the reviews, it was noted that there was a tint of plum color and not a true black like the photograph portrayed. Turns out that the deep dark rich charcoal and plum is exactly what I wanted. The problem is that when it arrived, it was neither.. It is more a mixture of browns which is definitely not even close to the photo or the reviews. I have been a customer of Overstock for years and this is the first time I have been dissapointed. I actually bought this for my new home and was going to purchase paint to match. Now, I have to pay to return it and find something else. The cost to return could have actually bought the paint for the new room.
