I absolutely fell in love with this set, although it was priced higher than I was wanting to spend. I read the review comments, and HOPED that they were wrong as far as the color. Unfortunately, I should've listened to the reviews. This bed set is pretty, but it is not at all the "dramatic" look that you see in the picture. It is not blue AT ALL. It is more of a pastel "sea foam" green. Also, there is NO sheen to it. It is more or less just a plain, cotton-look, with a pretty design. It is nice, but not at all the look that you get in the pictures, and (to me) not worth the price. Sorry to disappoint you, but trust me on this one...I had to learn the lesson for myself.
