After reading previous reviews, I almost decided not to buy this product. I'm glad I ignored the reviews. I bought this for my daughter's room and she loves it (6 years old). I didn't want to get anything too expensive since it may get spilled on, thrown up on, wet on, etc. by her or her little sister. The color is a nice delicate blue. Very feminine. The brown is very shiny and iridescent, silky like. The sheets have deep pockets for mattresses with toppers, and are much softer than I expected. Everything is proportional to my bed (skirt, comforter, shams). In other words, everything fits like it is supposed to. I am not too fond of the curtains, but since we have blinds, we aren't using them anyway. We are just using the valances. Looks great. I think the quality is great for the price. Where else can you get all this for less than the cost of one comforter from an expensive name brand? This is very affordable. Do you know the old saying, "You get what you pay for."? Well, in this case, I think I've gotten the better end of the deal. What a bargain!
