I chose this pillow to accent my bed and coordinate with the Sean Jacobs "Sea Mist II" canvas print also from Overstock. I must say, the two look great together. Color is a Deep turquoise color with a satin type fabric that reminds me of the "cool stuff" on the edge of my favorite childhood blanket. Some things I did not expect: 1) the dimensions were differnt from the description- my pillow measures 7.5 inches by 12.5 inches- so very thick, like a fat tire. I think it's totally cute and have fun rolling it off the bed at night. 2) the fat 7.5 inch edges of the pillow have a pinch pleated or "pin tuck" design on the them which is really pretty and goes so perfectly with my pin-tuck duvet I bought from another popular catalog website. It would be nice if overstock had a picture of the pillows edge. 3) the reason for one star off is that two of the pleats on the edge had popped a thread and required a bit of sewing to put them right. Since I presume this popped pleat problem will persist, I have purposefully pared the scorre back a peg.
