As others have mentioned, the color is off. I really did want a nice light blue. It's shiny, darker, and certainly not a nice soft light blue. The white stripe is also in an awkward location. It ought to be more to the side, or at approximately the 1/3 mark as it lays on a bed, for the best look. It is too close to the center for quite the right aesthetic. But, for the price, it works in my guest bedroom to give it a nice welcoming look. I would have been really mad if I'd paid retail for this item.
