This set looks better than the picture as far as color. The color is much prettier but I have to say the picture is pretty close.What you can't see in the picture is the sheen or so to speak shimmer that it has. This comforter is very warm even though I don't use it to cover up with, its more for show! It appears to be of good quality, but I haven't had it but a couple months, so no need yet to clean it!!
