I read the other review and I both agree and strongly disagree. Yes, the center is a brownish orange but for my needs that is perfect because I am basing this on a tan wall and I wanted a brown, orange, green accent for the room. There IS an ombre effect as the brownish orange goes gradually out to a sunny orange. The splash of green floral in the background accents it all perfectly. I'm 100% with this tapestry, but then I'm an aging hippie transplanted to the city with a fondness for lotus flowers. That doesn't mean I'm easy to please though folks. This is a keeper!
