I wish that I had waited to order this set until there were more reviews. As other customers have recently noted, this is not a blue, brown, and white comforter. It is a teal (or aqua), brown and white comforter. I was unable to achieve the look I wanted in my guest bedroom because the actual color was so far off from the picture. The quality of the set is truly average and matches the price charged. The "pillow shams" are not really shams. The fabric is so thin they are more like pillow cases.
I was not very impressed by this set, but loved the colors. Decided to keep it and even painted the guest bedroom to match the blue in the set. However, when I had to wash the comforter, I was extremely disappointed. The batting inside bunched up, leaving the comforter lumpy. I'm contemplating reordering, as the whole room is colored around this bedding set. However, thinking I might just get a white down comforter instead.
The only thing I was disappointed with was how wrinkled this comforter set is out of the wash. You are not supposed to iron it either. So unless you have a large capacity dryer or a clothes line (and I don't even know if hang drying it would work) you're going to have a very wrinkled comforter out of the dryer. I try to finish drying it by hanging it over the table and chairs because my dryer won't dry it all the way due to the size, but it is still wrinkled. The colors are exactly like the photos, although I didn't realize how much white was on the comforter (half of it). The comforter is high quality and will be warm in the winter. It also really brightens up the room.
Comforter was pretty but the brown in the accent pillows was a different dye lot than the comforter. Absolutely no way to put them together. Thought about just using the comforter and bed skirt but decided to return and try again. Overstock.com has allowed me return shipping and complete refund on this product. It is my first return...hope it is true!
I received my order within a very short time - as always. It looks very nice and the color is more of a blue/green than a light blue. I am waiting for my mattress and boxspring to arrive so I haven't put it together yet. The fabric feels nice and I am arranging my room like the room in the photo with white sheer grommet panels. I would rather have had a set of pillow cases than the pillows that came with it. However, it did come with pillow shams
This is a really prety comforer set, BUT it is not a light blue. It is a light teal color so if you are wanting it for a blue/brown room it won't match. Also the extra pillows do not match the brown in the comforter, they are two different browns!
Hubby and I FELL oin LOVE with this set.. we had just purchased blue and brown blackout drapes from Overstock.com and thought this would match perfectly along with the Adrienne 7 piece comforter set. Neither one matched the blue as they were more of a seafoam colors. we paid a small fortune to send them back and the company was kind enough to reimburse a portion of the postage (and they did not have to). I guess it is hard to depict colors on line and in catalogues. if they had matched the drapes we would have kept both sets..
This bedding set is okay. The color is a little off from the picture. I was looking for a bedding set with light-blue color and thought I found one. But it turned out that this one is greenish-blue and more on the green side. Still looks okay. The quality of the set is also so-so. The first set that's been sent to me has a big stain on it so they sent me a replacement set. Turned out that there is a problem with one of the shams in the replacement set. Still considering what to do with it. They offer to send me another replacement set but I just don't know if it worth another effort.
After reading some reviews I was hesitant about buying this comforter set. I took a chance cause I loved the look of this comforter and I needed a new one for spring. When I recieced the comforter set I was very pleased to see that it was perfect. The color was what I expected, everything matches and it is very comfortable and it brightens up the room! I love it!
I know, I know, if it's so excellent, why the 4 star rating? It's very simple...the comforter and pillow shams are amazing! True to color on the screen. The comforter is nice and thick, and the print is beautiful. The 4 stars is for 2 reasons. I hated the 2 pillows that came with it! Very poor quality and unatter active! I threw them away almost immediately. The seconded is the dust ruffle. It is a slightly different color blue from the blue on the comforter. I am getting an adjustable bed base and can't use a dust ruffle anyway, so that too will get thrown away. Overall, I am very pleased.
I absolutely loved this, but like all things at some time it has to be washed. I took it to a Laundromat because of the size and it really lumped up and I didn't know how to get the lumps out. It faded a lot too. It was soft and comfy but did not last too long.
