Finally got around to putting this on our bed. It is both beautiful & handsome, so we both can live with that. Overall the bedding is good to average quality. The sheets feel a bit thin, and I would have expected the quilt to feel a bit heavier. The quilt is more than adequate length wise, but short on the sides. Much of that has to do with our bed being low and not using the skirt as intended. The colors are represented fairly well in the picture, although the gray stands out more than it appears. It is a pleasant dove gray. No bleeding of colors when sheets washed as directed.
