The picture doesn't show how many birds there are on this comforter. The picture makes it look like there is an accent of a bird design but there is a repeated pattern of birds on the comforter. Too many in my opinion! Besides the background of a blueish white there is a prominent color of purple and the birds are 2 colors of red. one thing is that comforter is very fluffy and full. I am sending it back because of the pattern and there is too much purple for my bedroom. The plus is that you get a lot for your money especially if you like birds!
This comforter set turned out very pretty and just what I had in mind. Its decorative without being busy and I love the combo of red and purple. There is more of a slightly tan color than in the picture where it looks like a mix of grays but that doesn't bother me. One reviewer said there were "a lot of birds". I think its just the right amount of floral print and birds. Its very soft and super cozy and comfy. I bought an additional red throw pillow and that really added a nice touch. I am very satisfied with this product and would recommend it to others.
In the description of this it says 100% cotton and polyester fill. While the top portion of the comforter is cotton, the backing is a brushed polyester. I'm not a huge fan of polyester, let alone the brushed feel. However, it is beautiful, washes nicely and I've gotten lots of compliments on it. Because it is the back that's polyester, a sheet is always in place so you can't really feel that. I don't use the throw pillows because it clashes with other things in the room, but they are colorful as they are pictured. If I had it to do over again, I'd choose something else that was completely cotton without the throw pillows. If you want the whole ensemble, it is very nice.
Fabric has a satin feel, which I love. Larger Cal King size works well on Cal King and/or queen size bed. If used on a queen size bed, more comforter hangs on the sides. This is great if your partned steals the covers. You still have some on your side to keep you warm.
best thing about the product is thefabric design...was disappointed in the quality of sewing and the fill (batting). I was sorry to see it was made in China. Overstock shipping was timely however. I would probably not buy this type of product online. It is better to see up close and personal. As an interior designer, I should have researched it more before purchasing. However...the fabric is pretty!!
