I just got this & put it on my bed. It is definitely green as shown in the photo, maybe not exactly but quite nice. The fabric does have an interesting sheen to it and I guess we'll see how well it wears. It seems a bit slippery. My only complaint is that the opening is on the tan side, not the green so the pretty green is at the head of the bed instead of the foot. Is that the way it's supposed to be?
