I bought this comforter set last year when my husband I painted the wall behind our bed blue. Hunted high and low to try and find the right color.....which this wasn't but did not want the hassle of losing money on the return. There is hardly no fill in this set and the blue is a funny color that looks different in different light. Lots of loose thread. Very disappointed. Recently found a set I love that matches waaaaay better at a local linen store.
If you're looking for a specific color scheme to match say an area rug or curtains than definitely go for it. Now if you're looking for top quality, look else where. It's more of a summer comforter for those cool nights if nothing else and I must say the sea blue color you see is more of a teal color. Overall I'm not disappointed at all because I was looking to match my area rug and the color is a spot on match.
The comforter is lighter in weight and the outer polyester material wrinkles easily and is a poorer quality than I expected. The colors are not nearly as vibrant as the ad would lead you to believe. However, there is good styling and the two pillows that were included make this purchase a decent value. There is little doubt in my mind that I will have to replace the coverlet within a year or so, since i do not expect that the polyester will be sufficiently durable.
I love the colors. The fabric has more shine than pictured, I was looking for a matte finish, but this will do. The comforter has brown stitches to hold the batting in place; even on the blue and beige sections which is a little odd. Be very careful when ironing the pieces, especially the skirt. I melted the extremely thin base fabric in a few places by getting the iron too close to it. I used some interfacing to repair it and it doesn't show. I am using the set for a guest bedroom and it looks very nice, not too feminine or masculine.
Bought this set for our guest bed... Since it's hardly used, the set looks great being always made up in the room and I expect it to last being used maybe two weeks out of the year! Pillows seem to be quality as well. My only advice is that if you are a person who doesn't like the feel of finger or toenails snagging against the faux-satin material, you might hate the comforter. Luckily, with the $ I saved on this comforter set, we purchased some very nice sheets to compliment it!
