I was looking for a blue/brown duvet cover and like everyone else, thought this product matched those colors. Based on the picture I thought it was a perfect match. I'm glad I read the reviews because the "brown" is actually more black looking which still worked for me because I have black scarf curtains and my carpet is gray with my blue walls. I absolutely love this duvet, it looks very contemporary and nice for the price. I expected the color to be off since I had read the reviews which helped me to expect the off colors. Had I not read the reviews, I would have been disappointed because the product color really doesn't match the picture. If the dark brownish/black will work into your decor, then you will be satisfied with this duvet cover. The blue is not a cool sky blue but a more warm aquamarine blue.
