Loved this bedding set since it was a unique pattern and I didn't see many others out there like it. I know other customers were slightly disappointed that the colors weren't "brighter". I actually thought the more muted colors were perfect for their room - not overwhelming at all. We have washed the items 3 times so far and they seem to be holding up just fine. Wish the flat sheet had a fitted bottom but that is a minor detail that I can easily live without. Very cute!
