I recommended this to a friend before I bought it for myself. She bought it and loved it. Eventually I bought it for myself as well. It is so cheery without being silly. The color is vivid without being so bright that it is immature. I just love this set. The fabric is a nice cotton. It is exactly how it looks in the picture.
The color is just like the picture. I also ordered white Euro shams and the white and green pops and looks very nice in our room. I washed the duvet and shams just as recommended; the fabric is soft and doesn't wrinkle, looks great. If you are looking for accent pillows, I found some cute solid gold ones that look very nice with the set. Overall, very satisfied with this set and would definitely order again.
Bedding should be soft. I would think that's the first priority. Secondly, it should look good. This duvet looks great. But it feels like 200 grit sandpaper. Fortunately I have soft sheets between this and my skin, but when I occassionally have to make contact with it, I cringe. Did they try to choose the harshest fabric possible?
This will be the fourth monitor I'm viewing this on and it appears to be a lighter / off green color (it's difficult to describe). However, it's actual color is NOT - it's bright Shamrock Green. If that's what you're going for, then this would be great. However, if you're shopping with color & pattern in mind as well as other features, steer clear of this one!
This set makes me happy to look at because it also looks like art against a dark gray headboard. It might be a little "crispy" after one wash, but it still lays well. It's still soft and I like to hang out with my bedding especially on a cloudy day. I work with a lot of color, it is not olive nor a bright lime. The photo on Overstock is very close to real-life. I even like making my bed so I can see as much color as I can. That's a lot to be said!
I'm ready to redecorate my bedroom and decided to start with the bedding. I found this online and loved the color and was not disappointed when it showed up. The fabric isn't the softest (which is why I'm giving it a "good" instead of an "excellent"), but I'm hoping with more washes it will become softer. Overall, I'm very happy with this purchase and can't wait to finish decorating my room!
The color of this set is beautiful.At first I ordered the king set for my queen bed but is was too big so I returned it and ordered the queen set. I like the set but I wish that it was 6 inches longer because it does not quite cover my thick queen set. The width is fine.
