After dealing with a duvet nightmare for the last couple years, I decided to get a simple comforter. No longer would I be plagued with shifting and bunching, no, I would have a nice comfy blanket that I don't need to adjust every morning. This comforter set is exactly what I was looking for. First of all, it's very comfy and soft. The ribbed fabric adds a touch of style and interest. The little throw pillow really makes the bed look sharp when it's made. The color is a little bit lighter than in the photo, more of a dusty lilac. I would have liked the purple to be a little richer to go with my peacock blue sheets, but it still looks good. Overall, I am very happy with this purchase!
