I saw this set and loved the deep red color in the picture. Overstock's description just said "Exact color: White" no description of the other colors in the set. Please note that this is NOT red nor white. The background color is a light cream with light taupe flowers. What I thought was red is really a pinky purplish color. Not a true light purple as it has too much pink in it for that. The best description I think think of is a light mauve. It is pretty but does not go at all with the cranberry red of my room. The comfoter does feel soft. The pillows look a little cheapy but what do you expect for under $100? If the color was deep red, I would have kept it but since it is SO different than what I expected, I returned it.
