Bedding is beautiful & stands out in our warm red bedroom. The little throw pillows are my favorite as they add a touch of class. The color is shiny which adds to the elegance & very durable. I was quite impressed when my very picky husband said it was better than our other dark brown comforter set, which he loved. Would highly recommend, just know that the colors are more shiny cream than whitish-gray like the pictures. Found a perfect set of curtains as walmart...better homes & garden brand. Matches perfectly for very little cash!!
