I love the clean look of this comforter set - nice & neutral, with a touch of polish. The stitched borders around the edges & pintucks are a nice touch, and the embroidery is well done. Colors are true to the website photos: charcoal gray & light gray. Previous reviewers are correct: the embroidery pattern is not centered on the comforter, but lays on the right-hand side of the bed. I am using this set on a Queen size bed, and the pattern barely hangs off the right edge of the bed. (If you were using this comforter on a Full size bed, I expect the pattern would hang even MORE off the side.) After reading previous reviews, I was a little worried that the comforter might be too lightweight; however, it's just perfect for our Texas climate. Heavy enough to be cozy, but light enough that you won't sweat all night long. Two criticisms: 1. There are several places in both the comforter & shams where some of the dark-colored embroidery thread was accidentally sewn in between the layers of white fabric. It's like the dark threads were laying on the work table, and accidentally got sewn in with the batting/stuffing; and since the fabric is white, it's easy to see the dark thread underneath. There's nothing I can do about it - other than reap open the seams & try to remove the threads - but they are visible, and I catch myself trying to "brush them off" when I see them. 2. For the price, I was disappointed that this set did not include a bedskirt/dust ruffle. I initially planned to just buy a separate white bedskirt, but was surprised to discover that there are a LOT of different shades of "white." Ended up pairing this with a "grass green" bedskirt & accent pillows, for a nature-inspired room. Very pleased with the overall look.
