Lovely brick red color instead of bright red. Ambiguous enough "floral" pattern to not offend my very masculine husband. Is light enough to go over the TOP of a down comforter without weighing down the comforter...makes the bed VERY cozy! I washed it before using it, and it did not fade, did not shrink, did not wrinkle. Love the set. The gingham bedskirt and reverse trim is truly BLACK AND WHITE, not grey as it looks...it is just a tiny gingham pattern and therefore looks greyish in the pic. I decorate with black and white, and it looks gorgeous. PERFECT for winter color.....I bought the king, and it fits perfectly. One comment...the skirt is 15" deep EXACTLY, after you iron it. So if you need something longer, you'll have to add a simple trim to it - which would be very easy to do like a grosgrain ribbon. Just make sure you wash it first.....
I had waited 7 years to justify buying a new bedding set. I thought that by paying $$ Dlls for the bonus set - comforter, shames and two pillows- I would received in exchange a quality set. The material and construction of this set is what you could find in Big Lots, or K- Mart, except the tag price,which you can find less expensive on these stores. The two bonus pillows are same size however they have a different face quilted, what is worst, their ties just bearly close, leaving the insert expose...I'm glad to have a new bedding set, I'll learn to live with it, but I am afraid I had not used our money wisely. Great anticipation = great disappointment
I was disappointed when I opened the quilt set. The colors are very muted, almost faded, and the quilt is very thin. At first I decided to return the set but changed my mind and will use the checked side out with red accents instead of the other way around.
I've had this quilt set in our spare room (used by my son and daughter in law when they come).... it's really beautiful. The only warning I would mention is to be careful when you wash it.... be sure it's cold water and use whatever product you have that reduces fading. It will fade if you're not very careful with it. Otherwise, you will love it!
I've had this set in my vacation rental of 2 seasons, it's been through the wash about 10 times and still looks great...the edges of the pillow cases get badly wrinkled after washing but that's about all i can say negative about this quilt set.
I've had this for over 2 years and it has held up very well. My only complaint (thus, the 4 stars) is that it is a bit short on the sides...either we turn it long ways and have our toes hanging out or turn it short ways and fight for covering all night. If you have maybe a queen or full size bed, this would fit perfectly.
I was worried about purchasing something that was so inexpensive, but thought I'd give it a try because it was the 'look' I wanted. I've had friends ask 'where' and 'how much' on this bed grouping than on any other I paid much, much for!!
