I like the comforter design and the throw pillows are well made. My biggest concern was that it would be made out that slippery material (but it's not!). The comforter backing is a plain brown to match the trim. The sheets fit my queen - they do feel a little strange. I'm not sure if they are just a different thread count than I'm used to or if I previously had cotton-poly blend and these are pure cotton? THe sheets are a solid cream color and the top sheet and pillow cases have a line of brown trim. I've washed the sheets about 4 times and had no problems.
