I was concerned as to the blue, but it is a nice shade. The blue, black, & white is a great combination. It is nice for the $$, but cheap mass production made. My mattress & box spring totals 21" and from other reviews, I knew the queen comforter would be too short and it was. However, the foot board of the bed hides the short length and the short width side faces the window as you walk into the room so it is hidden, except the white strip sits a little on top of mattress...not too bad. The 2 euro shams fits 28x28 pillow, not 26x26. The two toss pillow are in a cute color block style, only some black thread is sewn into the white material. I have not washed it and since It is cheaply made and low quality filling, I am going to use some dry clean sheets. All 'n all, the set is a beautiful style if you like modern. Another good thing is the set can work for kids to adults, male or female.
It looked great when we got it but within about a month, the sham was coming apart at the seam where the colors come together. I didn't do anything about it because I figured it wouldn't happen again and it was just the euro sham which was behind the standard sham. Then about 1 month later, the bedspread did the same thing at the bottom of the bed and then recently, another spot did it. It is only 5 months old. I am very disappointed.
I can't review the quality of the item--I barely got it out of the bag when I realized it is not NAVY, but BLACK--in spite of the description stating the color is navy, sky blue and white. So, I wouldn't recommend it to a friend looking for a navy comforter. Had to send it back.
