This isn't the same in person at all. The pattern on the pillows is blurry, the jacquard damask design on this is faded and not solid....appears to be an assemblage of faded dots/ lines on the comforter then put into a washing machine multiple times over a period of decades, left in the warehouse to settle like wine or cheese then into a box for delivery to my door. The reverse side was closer to a hunter green than bluish teal. Fabric was rough. Felt of poor quality all around. I'm usually the type to try and make things work instead of returning but this went back in the box and out the door faster than I could kick my shoes off after coming home.
I was so excited about the purchase of this comforter set. It brought in the grey tones that match the paint I had purchased for our bedroom but it had a punch of color that I was looking for. Though wary based on other reviews as to what the true color of the blue/green would be, I decided to order it anyway in hopes that it would be absolutely perfect. I never got the chance to find out. I placed the order and waited a few weeks for a shipment notice. Finally that came, but the package never did. After another week and a half, I checked with the carrier, they never showed that they even received the item. At this point I called Overstock who tried to brush it off as a "lost item", sorry....the carrier and their website show shipping information received but no item.... Long story short, they passed the blame instead of accepting responsibility (hey, things happen and sometimes things fall through the cracks, it stinks, but it happens and it gives you a chance to fix whatever caused the problem). Once they finally got back to me the item was sold out and so a refund had to be issued.
Although the color in the picture is a little different than the actual color, the product description is right on point. The set is of excellent quality compared to comfort sets I have purchased in the past and have paid much more. Great quality for the price.
I was so so EXCITED when this came in the mail... some things you should know before purchasing. 1. the top of this blanket is a rougher material, but it is not the part that touches you while you sleep. 2. it IS more green than teal, the picture is slightly misleading. however, it still blends fine with my teal color scheme and I am picky. maybe not the pillows so much, but the comforter is beyond perfect. 3. the pillows don't really match the blanket, but I knew this before I ordered it because you can see in the picture that it doesn't really fit the style. 4. this is easy to decorate around. I gave it 4 stars for the poor marketing and the ugly pillows. No one else in the house seems to think they're ugly but me so I'm thinking that it just my preference(: I love my set.
This turned out to be one of the prettiest comforters I have bought....I only change out every 3-4 years so this one will definitely be used for a while.....my walls are painted a soft gold so the colors in the pillows really accents my room and just pulls it all together.....really recommend this set and the price was unbelievable.
The color matches the picture exactly which is a huge relief considering we painted our bedroom before actually receiving the comforter set. The teal is so rich looking and fresh at the same time. We absolutely love it and you cannot beat the price. What a great deal all around and are very pleased.
