This comforter set is a rich plum (purple) color, however it's not as dark as the photograph. The embroidered thread design is a semi-matte silver color. The bed skirt, piping and backs of the shams are a light soft grey color. The design element on the comforter and shams is Embroidered onto the fabric, (usually for this price point you would only get a screen printed motif). Due to the fact that the design is embroidered I would not recommend this set for households with pets, children, etc. as it would be quite easy to snag, break and pull the threads if not handled carefully. As stated in other reviews this comforter is very light weight. If your like me and want that feeling of sleeping in a warm, snug cocoon....you're gonna need another blanket. My only complaint is (on a really dry air day) the static electricity this set creates...my old comforter was 100% cotton so I didn't have this problem. Again, this set is Beautiful for the price paid. I shopped for over a year looking for a comforter that I actually liked at a price point I could actually afford. This set is simple, romantic and modern.
So much prettier in person. Just put it on my bed & its absolutely stunning! The fabric is so soft & cozy. The comforter fits my queen size bed perfectly. The Euro Shams are a perfect fit as are the regular shams. The deco is embroidered so I wouldn't recommend laying allover the comforter & shams since the threads can be pulled out easily. This set is completely functional & decorative.
This is a pretty set which is very true to the on-line picture, especially in regards to color. The throw pillows are a little lacking in regards to fill. However, given the fabulous price, it's a great bedding ensemble that met my needs as a spring/summer comforter set . If you are looking for a nice ensemble without a huge ticket price, this really does the job nicely.
This is an awesome comforter set. The material is very soft, and the embroidery is not scratchy. It is very warm, and I love sleeping under it. Price was great and quality is good. Pillow shams are a little large, but that gives me an excuse to buy new pillows. Very good deal for the money.
