I was looking for a comforter that was a light background with gray accents and when I found this it was PERFECT! The picture is true to the color unlike other sites. It has generous sizing on the fitted sheet so it will fit deep beds and the comforter is cozy without being hot. The comforter has a nice sheen to it which makes it look more expensive then it is. I have washed the sheets and pillowcases already and the black didn't bleed which is a huge bonus...I adore this comforter!
