I was looking for a brighter bedspread with these colors and that is what I got. I like that the poly is lightweight and easy to wash because my cat likes it too! I rely greatly on Buyer Reviews when I shop on-line. There are comments about colors being different from those in picture. The red is a rusty red and the yellow is definitely a gold/chartreuse shade. But the whole effect is sort of "country hippie" and very cheerful. I have a queen bed and it hangs over about 18 in on both sides. Got just what I wanted and it shipped quickly. Thanks.
