After reading other reviews complaining about the color I ALMOST didn't make this purchase. I am SO glad I did. Being in the design/creative realm I understand that product color doesn't perfectly match what is on the monitor. Personally, I am happy that the colors are a bit darker than shown. It gives such a warmth to my room and has helped me create the oasis I was aiming for. The weight of the comforter is just right too - not too heavy, not too light. Overall, perfect!
