This is a vibrant colored bedding set with a bonus sheet set included. The colors are much richer than on-screen with more burgandy than tan. The comforter top material is very soft with a nice sheen and the underlining is even softer. The trimming/braid detail on the comforter and shams is very nice and adds to the 'wow' factor of the set. The sheets, a cotton/poly blend, match the comforter set very well but I would rate them as adequate and not something I would have purchased as a stand-alone item. They will likely soften with additional washings As noted in other reviews, I think the stated width measurements for the comforter are over estimatated as the queen size just covers our pillow-top mattress. I would have ordered a king set but the shams, bed-skirt and sheet set would have been too large. Do the pluses outweigh the minuses on this set? Yes. I love the look and can ignore the less-than-perfect aspects.
