We bought this for my 10 yr old daughter's room. The colors are as they appear. I felt it was a great deal as it comes with two shams and a toss pillow. Other reviews noted that the comforter is on the thin side. She has had it about a week and has been plenty warm- but we also live in FL. I wish there were coordinating sheets with this set. I tried to fine something but ended up just getting white. Overall both my daughter and I are very pleased with this purchase.
