As for the look of this set... I think it's very nice. The shade of pink is more of a rose pink... Photo is very close to accurate. The reverse is a brown and off white geometric pattern that matches the front of the pillow shams. I've had this set now for about 3 yrs and is gotten a lot of use... It began pilling (you can avoid this by getting it dry cleaned every time you want to wash it... But it hasn't faded too much and I still love it. The colors, especially the shade of pink, is very comforting to walk into my room and see. As for the comforter itself, it's nothing special as far as comfort goes... It's an average, lighter weight, piece of bedding and can be used all seasons. If you're in a particularly cold climate during the winter months, you'll need more than just this.
