There were a number of conflicting reviews which I read before I purchased this duvet cover & I read every single one good and bad. The majority of people loved the duvet cover with a few exceptions so those were the reviews that I was most interested in. I will have to say that the few people that did not like it are not into color & design as the people that gave it a good review. Their main complaint was that the color was a lot darker than shown in the photo. No color is going to be truly accurate on a computer & their monitors are probably set to a darker version. There was just a shade difference in the duvet cover from what I saw on the monitor. When it arrived just a few moments ago. I opened the package & I will have to say that I was so happy to see that it is a French Blue as the description said not a dark color as some reviews mentioned. Also one person said that the branches looked cartoonish. That is absolutely false - they do not. They are as pictured in the photo & they are a striking contrast against the blue & they are beautiful. Someone also said it looked cheap - I have been decorating homes for many, many years & the duvet cover certainly does not look cheap or I would return it. It looks absolutely beautiful in my blue & white bedroom & I would recommend this lovely duvet cover to anyone who likes an elegant & striking design. I have purchased many items from Overstock over the last few years & have always been very happy with their products & will certainly order from them again in the future.
