I'm actually obsessed with it. It's historically accurate (French things were all the rage with the wealthy in all the US, and of course in New Orleans, which basically was French.) The carvings are really pretty. Personally, I love the sort of antique robin's egg blue and the little flower detailing. The low isn't always super-practical, but its accurate. I agree that the blanket could be a little thicker and bigger, but its pretty. It may not show up on pictures, but the blue paint isn't matte, it has this antique finish where you can kinda see the different wood grains beneath it, which is really, really pretty. I love the mosquito net detail. I may just do that mattress trick. I look at it and it just makes me happy.
