I LOVE this set! It has a subtle sheen to it to make it look very rich and luxurious, as opposed to some fabrics that just look cheap. I am currently using it as a 'blanket' on my guest bed with the Red comforter set I bought from Overstock and mixing the red with this set is just SO pretty. the pillow shams are great and the fit well. I would buy this set again and totally recommend it!!
