I read all reviews before purchasing this item as I was concerned that the color would be more rust or red with orange undertones. The color is really a lovely burgundy color although the manufacturer describes it as "pomegrante". In fact the color is exactly the color shown on my monitor (I realize all monitors are not the same). The scrolls are not as prominent as they appear in the photo as it looks like the light was shining directly on the scrolls in the photo. They are actually a muted dark taupe color and only the edges of the scrolls are outlined in gold (maybe 1/8" or less). The comforter is well made and the finishing details are nice (braid cord trim). I bought it in King Size and it is a generous fit for a King Bed. I bought the matching throw pillows from another website to complete the look. The set is also reversible to the taupey color as shown by the shams in the photo. The two shams included with the set are shown in the photo on the plain side. On the reverse side they are beautifully decorated with velvet rushing and some burgandy panels and lots of detailing. The price at O was better than elsewhere but expecially great when you factor in the shipping costs from other providers. Very happy with this purchase.
