In the picture it looks more flat toned and less of that "shimmery" polyester look. But when you get it, it's very shimmery, and the material is very scratchy on the skin! So I suggest anyone looking at this, to keep on shopping around.
The color isn't as green as it appears - definitely more gold. The design is lovely and you get a lot for the money. Since everything is polyester, except for the 100% cotton sheets, it tends to be a bit shiny. Not horrible, but just be aware. I've gotten used to it now, but when I was first assembling it on the bed I just started cracking up!
I bought this set to match a shower curtain I bought elsewhere. It matches perfectly. Unlike other reviewers, I did not notice the "shine" in this set. It is well made and looks more expensive that the price. I did find the solid shams to be a little big but other than that I am pleased. The sheets are just OK but it's not a deal breaker for me because I always buy more expensive sheets. I have not had any fraying of fabric or tears. The weight for me is just right. Not too thick, not too thin. Overall, I am very pleased and thrilled that it matched my shower curtain = )
This product pleased me very much. It is elegant, has been well made and coordinates with my furniture. The bed/sheets/pillow cases are soft and pliant. The shams are beautiful and there are 2 cushions in every set. I am very happy with this set.
