This comforter set is very beautiful. It looks just like the photo. The fabric is silky with a jaquard texture on the paisley part, so it could pick easily, but so far that hasn't been a problem for me. I'm using it in my guest room which is painted powder blue. The euro shams and sheets are more of a smokey blue, but when the bed is all made everything looks great. After I ordered from Overstock, I found this comforter on several websites, but this is still the best price.
