I love Paisley...I love it! But, the design of these sheets boasts a somewhat unusual pattern; essentially, a lot of the design is made up of little blue hearts swirled around (and it looks a bit 'cheap' up close). For the price and the feel I kept them, but if I could have made out/seen the hearts on the site I would have definitely gone with another set (especially since I purchased the matching duvet as well).

I ordered and returned these sheets. Nice pattern, nice smooth texture, but the mocha is really dark chocolate brown, and very little blue. . Recommended with this reservation: From the picture on my monitor, they looked like a mixture of light blue and soft taupe, which was what I wanted. Too bad. No doubt there will be many more chances to find something at O! (There's a nice matching duvet cover too.)
These sheets are well made (better than the Horizon sheets I got from Overstock. The hem stitching came undone on those.) But they are not as soft as the Horizon sheets. They are flexible - soft in that way - but the finish is not as smooth and thus, not as soft. They are rough and scratchy. It isn't terrible, but I like a really smooth and soft sheet. They are better for cold weather because of this finish - in the summer and heat it would be very uncomfortable to sleep on scratchy sheets! The printing is only on one side - but this is not a problem in the winter when there is a blanket on top of the sheet. I just put the printed side down and when you get in bed all you see is print on the bottom sheet and the print on the underside of the top sheet. The print is more green than any other color - tho the set is called "Blue." There is a very light blue in the back ground, but the green paisley totally overwhelms any blue. Overall these are OK sheets - but not my favorite and I would not order them again.
I like these sheets deep pockets I purchased queen size it fits with my 4 inch memory foam topper well.

I am totally pleased, after washing the sheets they are soft and look luxurious. I would have given 5 stars but the color was off - having ordered the blue and yellow, the blue is actually a silver grey and it's a yellowish gold - didn't have to return as the new comforter is black and gold so it works great. The print is one that works well as a neutral look - not too girly or masculine. Liking them so much, I'm ordering another set for another bedroom.
As a rule I never order sheets that have fewer than 500 thread count. However, I ordered this set for a seldom used guest room and felt the value was great. The sheets washed well, and came out of the dryer unwrinkled which was a 5 star surprise. The reason I only give these 3 stars is because the top sheet is only printed on one side!!!!! Since a top sheet is put on the bed right side down in order for the border to show when turned over, this makes no sense!!!! I have a set of plain navy sheets and will be mixing the sets so I can avoid the unprinted side to show. Would I recommend these??? yes, for ease of care and great deal, but no if you are thinking of decorative value since only one side has the pattern!!!!
I REALLY LOVED the print. I bought the pillow cases and sheets, even though they are only 300 Thread count. Even after washing them several times, I have found them to be very uncomfortable to sleep on, because I find them very rough. I am sorry that I ordered them. Maybe someone else will not be bothered by the 'feel' of the sheets as much as I am, so I will donate them to charity.
I ordered the spice colored sheets and although I received them in good time the spice that looks to be reddish is really brown. It should be called brown. I will keep them but am a little disappointed in the color. Haven't used the sheets yet so I can't comment on their wear. I would not recommend this color to a friend maybe the other colors are truer to their description.
These sheets shrank after the first washing, even though manufacturer recommendations were followed. Now that they have been used and washed several times, the fitted bottom sheet is almost too short for my queen size bed, and the width of the top sheet is barely adequate. The fabric is soft and comfortable, but the colors have begun to fade even though the sheets are only about three months old. Even for the price, the quality of the fabric is not what I expected.
THe UPS delivered the box while we were away and the dog torn up the box. We came home to find the sheets all over the lawn - but in tact!! I recently ordered a duvet cover with the same pattern and love that they are coordinated! However I don't think the quality of the sheets is very good. - very thin and light weight. I guess time will tell.
The color is better in person. We purchased the blue set and, in the picture, the background looks brown, but is actually an olive green. To us, they are lightweight and living in Florida, it is a must. They have been washed numerous times and are still holding up. No faded color or shrinking. With our active life style and dogs...this is a great fit for us. Plus, I am a fan of subtle paisley.
The package clearly states 200 Thread Ct, not 300 Thread Ct as advertised.. The color and pattern is exactly as pictured. Beautiful! The fabric is starched so it appears to be very high quality, but after the first washing, it is more like handkerchief material - very thin. Overall, I'm very disappointed, more in O.com because I have raved about such high quality at great prices in the past. I hope this is just a fluke.
