First off I didnt want to spend this much for a comforter set, especially since it didnt come with any extra pillows! However, this set is so beautiful, and so well made that I can't complain. The quality is just fabulous and it really brightens up our room! Not sure if i will be able to use it during summer though because it is SO heavy! This is one heavy duty comfort, so far too heavy for fall. (although it's mid. Oct. in CA and still in the 90's) Excellent buy, and I found some great other pillows to go with it and they are not so matchy matchy.. Love the set!
