This comforter and shams set is very nice! The color in between the blue and red is a decidedly vintage cream color, so not sharp white as you might think. It is 100% cotton cover and feels wonderful. It is thick, and warm, and well made. It sits on the bed nicely, and I picked up two inexpensive cotton pillows for the shams. My 11year old loved it and I can easily see it lasting him throughout his entire teen years. It is very classic looking and is a very cool option instead of ubiquitous plaid bedding. Pay the extra money for the cotton comforter, that polyester garbage pills up fast. This comforter is attractive and built to last.
