My husband and I decided it was time to get rid of our old bed set, and I was worried it would be hard to find something we'd both like. Our last set was a Nautica brand, and it was SOOOO soft and comfortable - although it was pretty masculine. We looked on Overstock, and found this one, and purchased it within 10 minutes of logging on to the site! It's a dark blue color, and all the brown accents (including the brown pillow) are a velour material. I love the fact that this set came with valances and drapes! They are sheer/shiny, not a soft cotton. I have had sooooo many compliments on this set. I often tell people that for the first time in my 16 years of marriage, I finally feel like I have a "grown-up" room!! If you are buying a king size set - just realize that it will come with the 2 king-size pillowcases (that match the sheet set), and then the shiny blue shams are ALSO king-sized. Then there are 2 european sized shams. I didn't know what these were, but they are a 26x26 pillow - and I purchased two from Overstock.com as well, so that my bed would look like the one in the picture! I think I could have saved the money, and possibly bought new, fuller-style twin pillows to go in these and it would have looked just as nice. Over all, I have to say I am fantastically pleased. We've had it on our bed for 2 weeks - and it just makes me happy to walk into my room! The curtains will cover 2 windows.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Colors are a bit darker, but very pretty.
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. The sheet set are actually pretty good quality - they wrinkle in the wash, but are soft to sleep on, and are still holding up well after two washes. Although the comforter is a shiny material, it's still comfortable to sit on top of the bed, and it is warm to sleep with. There are a few places where the flowers have a small amount of glue around them.... makes me worry what will happen when it has to be cleaned, but I guess that's why it's dry clean only.
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? Description was VERY accurate, can't portray how great this product actually looks!
