I just painted a bedroom "baked clay" by Benjamin Moore and wanted to offset the darker hue with a brightly colored bedspread. The orange color of the bedspread was the same as I viewed on the Overstock site and brightened the room. It's a lighter weight quilt, but perfect for California weather. Plus both sides of the reversible quilt are equally attractive. I like vibrant colors so this fit the billing perfectly. I bought the king sized bedspread for my queen bed. It fits well. The queen size would have been too small. The shams are too big for standard pillows, but the excess fabric is not a deal breaker. Before my shipment arrived, I read the review of the person who hated the color, comparing it to the cones placed in roads, so I was bummed. But when I opened my package, I was thrilled.
I was redoing my daughters room for her 13th birthday.. She insisted that aqua was the one color she had to have. So we sent her to grandmas for the weekend and painted, constructed and redecorated. I went with bright orange as the accent color. I saw this quilt set and thought, I LOVE the color but it might be a little old for her. When she came home on Sunday and went into her room she was like, I LOVE IT. She loved the quilt set . It is a BRIGHT orange and a crisp white that just pops !.. I would highly recommend . And saw they exact same set a week later on ** website for *** . So the price is Awesome !
I bought this set in orange full/queen size. Unfortunately, in person, the orange color is almost identical to that of an orange safety cone. I love bright colors, but this was downright garish. Additionally, the lines that made up the design were not solid but rather were batik/tie dye, which wasn't pretty. Between the pattern and the color, the quilt didn't look modern or cheerful, it just looked tacky. Even if had liked the design, the full/queen size was too small for my (low, non-pillow top) queen mattress - depending on which way you turned it, it was either too short at the sides or else too short at the top or bottom. Last, the material itself was very scratchy, hard, and of poor quality. I can't recommend this item.
