When I saw this set online I thought it was beautiful. It won out over the dozen or so I was considering online, over a large span of prices, because it was exactly what I was looking for. I think it is a good deal for all that you get, though it's not the highest quality comforter ever. The comforter itself is not very heavy. I live in Southern California and it'll be fine for me, but if you live somewhere cold you'd need extra padding. The euro shams are plain white, but have a slight sheen that makes them pretty. The main reason I wanted to write this review for others is to clear up a misconception I had from the picture. It looked to me as if the comforter was folded down and was solid black on the back. It's actually solid white on the back, which makes me wary about getting it dirty when I fold it down. It's nice that this says it is machine washable, but I'm wondering how well it'll really hold up in the wash. It does look beautiful in my room, so if you're not worried about getting it dirty or needing something warmer, I would recommend it.
