I thought that this comforter set looked beautiful on the website and it was exactly what I had been looking for. Well, I was wrong. The actual pattern and color of the comforter, shams, and decorative pillow did not look at all like the picture The background color (supposedly a "soft lavender" according to the website description) actually looks more like a very dark dirty brownish purple color - not "soft lavender". The pattern of bamboo trees and leaves that looked so lovely and stood out nicely against the background color in the picture, were not arranged in the same pattern as the picture and looked very dull and muddy. This is not the "gorgeous" comforter set that I saw in the picture, and I am so, so disappointed. Now I am returning it and have to start my search for a lavender, asian-inspired comforter set all over again. I would not recommend purchasing this comforter set is you love the picture, because it won't look like it.
