I had been searching what seemed like an eternity for a lightweight comforter for my bedroom for the summer and had given up finding one until now. The thickness is perfect for Florida summers, the colors were just were what the picture showed. The poppies are not bright red which is not what I was looking for, they are more of a deep red and the comforter itself is "white" not cream. I have a Queen size bed and it does fit properly on the bed. I am extremely happy with the product and glad I did not give up my search. I have received numerous compliments on how elegant it looks with the bedroom suite whereas it matched perfectly and the red was just enough "pop" for the wood furniture.
