Loved the blues in this set, and it is all cotton. While it looked similar to the Charlotte, it offered more pieces. The only piece included in the Charlotte, not in the Elise, was the bed skirt. Since I have a sleigh bed, the skirt was unnecessary. And on top of it, the Elise came with several extra pillows but for much less. However, I wanted a matching shower curtain. All I could find was the Charlotte, so I took a chance and ordered two (I plan on cutting one up for window valances in the bedroom if they matched) and surprise! They matched the Elise set exactly. Why they sell under different names is a puzzle, but I took a chance on the curtains, ordered ELSEWHERE so I could return them without paying shipping if they did not match (Overstock now CHARGES for returns now unless the product is defective). I was pleased at how fast the comforter set arrived, and the updates I got on the progress of shipping. Not happy with the new return policy. Hey Overstock, what you see on-line is not always the same in person. I won't shop at Overstock if I think I might have to return a purchase unless I can see the product in a local store.
Very nice, including the pillows, but the comforter is only 88" wide. Why on earth would they make it 88" when the standard width for queen sheets is 90" and many mattress are 14" or more thick? Four inches wider would certainly make this a five star item.
I lovw this set! The pattern is the same as the Charlotte but without the trim on the edges. It is so stiking when I enter the bedroom with my cherry four poster bed. I am keeping the Charlotte so I can mix and match the pillows. I don't care for the Euroshams on the Elise, but the accent pillows are stitched and the blues are beautiful. It arrived early, and in perfect shape. The white is as crisp a white as I have seen and I will scotch guard it on a inconspicuous area just to add extra protection from spots, spills and puppy feet. I have ordered the valance in the Charlotte pattern and white panels for summer and spring rand navy velvet panels for the fall and winter. I have the shower curtain to go with with bath in the bedroom suite and it accentuates my blue and white china collection placed on white floating shelves. The room is a cocoon of peace. I also found fabric to drape over the four posters and shirred the canopy. I have become braver mixing patterns and it is stunning. Photos to come after I paint the walls and my rug arrives. So, so, so happy with the Charlotte pattern in king and the Elise in a queen. The Elise is 88 x 90 and I am still deciding if I will use my full mattress or queen. Definitely go with the king for the queen bed as it looks lush not skimpy. It makes the proportions lovely. With crystal lamps and white silk shades, I have created my oasis.

Bring brightness and beauty to your bedroom. Made very well. Only wish it were a few inches longer in width and length and it would have been nice if the set included a matching bed skirt.
I love this pattern but as has been pointed out by several others it is not the right size for a queen mattress. There is no bedskirt, but unless your bed has a wooden side panel it will not cover the mattress correctly. I took the advice of one and bought the king size instead. Not sure it really helps as it is very long on the sides but if you put the comforter at the top edge of the mattress it is to short at the foot end. If you leave further from the top and fold back the top sheet to let it show, thereby gaining more length for the foot of the bed then the corner points drag on the floor. And of course the king size shams are too wide for the bed. It is so sad that this just isn't what it could be. It would also have been nicer to have a decorative pillow that contrasted more. The larger decorative pillow is the same fabric as the comforter and just disappears when you put it on the bed. It will look nicer when I use the reverse darker blue side but right now it adds nothing. Still, all in all for the price I really think this is a pretty set.
Oh my gosh highly recommend this bed set Laura Ashley bed set it comes totally complete well-made beautiful matches the valance curtains that I bought to match highly recommend this set
This comforter is absolutely beautiful! I was looking for a comforter set that was blue and white in color. When I came across this one, I was hoping it would be just as it looked in the picture and stated correctly in the description. I was not disappointed. The material is great quality. The comforter is thick and cozy. I had read in the reviews that the Queen was rather short on the Queen size beds, so I ordered the King size. It fits perfectly on my Queen size bed. I like for my comforters to hang low off the bed so I don't have to use a bed skirt if I don't want to use one. The colors in the comforter and pillow shams are vibrant. I was very surprised at how beautiful the blue is. It is a true Navy blue. The white is a true white, not an off white. I highly recommend this comforter set. It is a wonderful price for a high quality product.
I’m redoing a guest bedroom, wanted to make it brighter, & wanted a blue and white theme. The comforter set is very pretty. Based on other reviews I ordered a king size for a queen size bed & I’m very glad I did in order to get the draping that you see in the pictures - because of this I had to purchase 2 king size pillows for the shams. You will also need to purchase 2 European pillow inserts in a 26x26 size. I also recommend purchasing a 2nd Laura Ashley Charlotte 16” decorative pillow to complete the look if you like a balanced look like I do. I’m in Florida & the comforter weight is good for me, however, for those in cold climates, you’ll want to add a blanket. I love it & think you will as well!
This comforter set is just exactly what you might expect from Laura Ashley. The quality is really lovely, it has all the extras with the Euro pillow sham, a pillow sham and two decorator pillows. Just the perfect set if you need something blue.
The colors are beautiful and just as shown. I am very happy with the colors and the pattern. I have one problem with the pillows. I accept the dark blue Euro shams--those are not standard. The 'standard shams' are not standard and are not the measurements given in the description. The measurements on my pillow cases are 4" and 6" smaller than the measurements listed. They are small shams and a standard pillow will not come close to fitting in them. It was disappointing not to be able to put the new shams on my standard pillows. Now I must try to find pillows to fit all these shams or stuff them. I expected better of this brand.
Update: After having this for almost a year it is holding up nicely and still looks brand new. It is very comfortable and everyone that sees it always compliments me on how beautiful it is. I bought it for our exchange student to use while she is here with us and she loves it so much she asked to take it back to Sweden with her! She says it is warm and cozy and loves the way it snuggles around her while she sleeps. This is a very nice set. It comes with the shams and pillow cases. It also comes with shams for 26x26 pillows. I did have to purchase them but that want a big deal. It looks very elegant once put all together the comforter seems very fluffy and warm. It hasn’t been washed yet so we will see. It does have a strong smell when you first open the package but is gone within 24 hours. This was a great choice for my guest room.
purchased this comforter set as a bit more warm winter alternative to the Laura Ashley Charlotte Blue and White Floral Cotton 4-Piece Comforter Set: same crisp blue & white with a bit more bulk to it...love that the set includes multiple bed pillows that I can use/mix with both bedding sets. I have a king bed, purchased the king set, and the fit is adequate
The comforter set works perfectly in the bedroom that is decorated in blues. The white background with the blue print really pops. I especially liked that it is reversible complete with Euro Shams and two throw pillows.
Love the colors! Came fast. Happy that it's machine washable, & it's also reversible with a solid dark blue with floral pattern!
Exactly as expected! Beautiful with fabulous quality! The pillows are perfect and the shams are large and fit the euro and standard pillows easily.
I just received my Laura Ashley Elise Navy 7-piece Comforter Set and I have to say, beginning with the ordering process to the arrival of my order everything was perfect. I have waited a while for this item to come back in stock and when I received an email from Overstock informing me it was back in stock, I quickly went online to place my order. However, I had some problems getting into my account but called customer service and they eagerly helped me place my order and told me how to reset my password. Delightful customer service!!! It only took a few days for my purchase to arrive and the colors are just beautiful and the pieces are well constructed. It is not to heavy, light and bright enough for the Spring and Summer. Everything I could expect from Laura Ashley and a great price and service from Overstock. I will be ordering again. Thank you so much.
I purchased for a twin size bed. It comes with one of each of the pillow shams for each sides The decorative pillows are adorable. The comforter keeps warm as well . I don’t have to use my electric blanket when it gets cold at night. The color is accurate as well.
I am so happy I went with this Laura Ashley Comforter Set. The beautiful cornflower blue, with the crisp and clean white background, make for a room brightening ensemble! The pillows that come with this are very generous in size, and are even "overstuffed" to perfection. The euro shams are primarily the cornflower blue, and they look so good against that white background. There are also two king size pillowcases, and the total package is a heckuva presentation. I would recommend this item to virtually anybody. Love it!!
Absolutely love this set. I did not realize it was reversible with a solid blue. I also did not know what a Euro sham was but found Eurosham pillows and it just makes the set and my bedroom is beautiful. I ordered another comforter from you folks last year but it much too heavy. I highly recommend this set.
The width of the full/queen size isn't wide enough. Was debating on getting the king for our queen bed... I should have! Keep this in mind when you order. It is a pretty set!
