To be honest, I didn't love how this set looked in the picture. The reason I bought it is because I knew my fiancée wouldn't want something too flowery or girlie, I didn't want anything too masculine looking, and also our bedroom doesn't get much natural light and tends to be dark and gloomy so I wanted a light color to brighten it up. We're on a budget, so I was limited to choosing from the cheapest options. I chose this because of the light color and the decorative swirls weren't nauseatingly feminine.
Also I had been given a bed in a bag as a gift when I went away to college in 2002, and it was really horrible, stiff, scratchy, uncomfortable. So I didn't know what to expect
Now that I have it, however, my opinion has changed. I love this bedding set! The picture makes it appear matte, but it's shiny and has a really nice appearance. As someone else mentioned, the underside of the comforter is very soft and comfy.
The sheets are nice. They aren't luxurious, high thread count, Egyptian cotton sheets by any means. But they are not the stiff, scratchy sheets I received in my previous bed in a bag. The are decent, mid-range sheets, and I find them comfortable.
Of course if you're looking for luxury, you could probably spend a lot more and get a lot more. But for this price, I was surprised at the quality of everything received. Honestly, it's the nicest comforter I've ever owned, and I've fallen in love with it.
Another reviewer said the scrolling looked black while the lining on the edges was brown. Mine did not appear that way. Mine appears brown in both areas and matches itself just fine.
The color in the picture here looks baby blue... Mine has a greenish tint to it, almost like a sea green.
*Note to cat owners* your cats claws WILL snag the comforter! I expected it going into it and don't blame the comforter for it. But if you want to keep it in pristine condition, either buy something different, or keep the cats out of the bedroom.
