We had just painted our bedroom blue with a dark blue accent wall. This comforter has many shades of blue and like a silver design that helps off set the blue. The pillow shams and extra pillows are great. I only wish there were more. However we have bought 6 more pillows that match perfectly because of the blues and silvers and print finding pillows was really easy. I even have some silver pillows and some beige/blue pillows. My decorator loves it!
