I never realized how hard it was to find twin quilts that aren't juvenile themed or college colors! Overstock came to the rescue. Although I wanted black and white the cream background is so barely cream you can hardly tell. It actually is better than the black and white color. And the gray reverse side is a very nice compliment. I can pair it with red sheets, purple lavender, green...you name it! Perfect summer weight. Pattern is very nicely done as well. Good quality cotton.
This is a pretty, old-fashioned style bedspread. Both sides are pretty; the ivory side has the pattern printed in black, and the grey side's pattern is in white. The reason I didn't give it 5 stars is the pillow shams. The front (ivory side) of the shams is the same quilted fabric as the spread, but the reverse (grey background with white pattern) on the shams is a very flimsy cotton. As for the softness, I think it will soften up when I have washed it. Overall, though, a very good buy.
Item purchased to provide for seasonal continuity of bedroom décor..very nice coverlet/shams set with a fresh appeal and light tone for upcoming spring/summer seasons..am very pleased with quality and look of the item..pleased with speed of shipping and value of purchase. great shopping experience.
I don't like this all that much. I'm searching for a lighter grey sheet and duvet cover set to help set this off better. I'll wash it before using but as others mentioned and I was expecting the background colors are more muslin deep ivory colored. Almost dingy and doesn't allow the print to pop as the picture suggests on line. I think I would not recommend and I wouldn't buy again. Size is right on and I always check sizes. So far the lighter grey colored sheets and comforter cover are out here on Overstock as well as several other sites I've checked. Can find pretty dark to very dark charcoal items but this needs a lighter touch I think to help lighten it up. I thought the extra standard shams I picked up to go with this set were a lighter ivory and don't match right on. I can get by with using them. Bottom line the background coloring cheapens this set. I'm hoping the background fades towards lighter ivory over time and laundering.
I am relatively new to o.co and am somewhat leary of buying things that I can't see in person, but I took a chance on this one because the picture was so darn pretty. It shipped within 3 days, which was awesome, but I was so disappointed when I actually saw this product. It looks pretty cheap, and the detailing you see in the display picture just doesn't look as intricate. I was so looking forward to getting this bedspread. But customer service was awesome, so though I am disappointed and returning this item, I will continue to shop at o.co
