The colors are very nice, and bright! It really lights up a room! I love the comforter it's very soft and smooth feeling; very fluffy. Only bad thing is in the middle of the comforter it has some of the cotton inside all bunched up and it won't lay flat. The sheets are very thin and fit my queen size mattress great; wish they were a little thicker. For the price that I paid for this, I'm happy with it, for using it for a couple of months, but I wouldn't re-order it.
