I just got this bedset yesterday and I put it on my bed today. I bought the set in queen size for a full size bed (I'm using full size sheets) and it fits very nicely, in case anyone else has a full bed that they are looking for. I am torn between 4 and 5 stars. There's one major element that disspointed me. I thought that, as you looked at the headboard, the pattern of the comforter would be on the left, so I rearranged my room and placed the right side of the bed against the wall. When I got the bedset, the pattern is on the RIGHT, if you assume the tags on the comforter at the end (foot) of the bed. I ended up just flipping the comforter over, and I may cut the tags off, but the seam at the top is still ridged, the way the bottom of a comforter normally is. As other reviewers have mentioned, it is not blue as in the color, but a very pretty pale icy green. I actually think it looks a little nicer than the blue would be, since it looks very soothing and relaxing, and I don't have a color scheme in my room so to me this isn't a a drawback (plus I knew it would be green from the reviews!) The pillows are adorable and well made; In a department store each would go for $20-$30 because of the high quality stitching, so these by themselves are a good value. One thing I'd like to mention that the other reviews don't mention is the bedskirt. You can see this a bit in the picture but it has a very pretty white border, which is very cute!
This is actually the second comforter I've ordered in this same pattern. My mattress has a 4-inch piece of memory foam on top of it, and the Queen didn't fit. The King is perfect. I love this comforter! Besides being nice and warm, the colors are soft and beautiful.
I have had this comforter for a year now and I loved it as soon as I received it. However, over the past year I have noticed several things about this set. Number one, it is gorgeous! It is slightly bluer than shown but it is exactly what I wanted, especially since I was going for a spa/relaxing theme. I would say the quality is average to good. The seams aren't perfect, but what do you expect from a factory made product. There have been several "hanging" threads on the small seems that are throughout the comforter, but I could easily just snip them off. The batting/stuffing is fine. However after repeated washing trying to get a spot out, the batting separated in one spot, leaving a lump inside the comforter. It's not an extremely thick and warm comforter but its not paper thin. With room temperature at 68 in the winter, I just have a sheet, a thinner blanket, and this comforter on my bed. I'm not sure what material it is made of, but whatever it is, it is not forgiving. Any little scrape pulls the thread out, leaving scrape marks which is annoying and kind of unsightly. Also, unless you never touch, sit, or go near the comforter, IT WILL STAIN. I am kind of a neat freak and maybe it won't bother others, but it is extremely easy to stain this comforter.DO NOT BUY IF YOU HAVE INSIDE PETS. I have water stains(water of all things!), pencil marks, grease/oily marks, and several others. Needless to say, this comforter has too many issues to outweigh the beauty of it. I am sad to say I am getting rid of it and going for a more stain resistant bedding set. I can overlook the average quality, but every little stain or mark can be seen on this delicate fabric and its impossible to get them out.
this comforter set is beautiful. i love the pillows that came with it. the set is very high quality i use it in my guest room, which is also mostly my dog's room when we don't have company so she sleeps and jumps on it day and day out and it is no worse for the wear. the colors are absolutely stunning. also, i searched MANY sites for this set and overstock had the best price by about $60. thanks overstock!!
I love the soothing spa greenish turquoise color or this comforter and how the flowers are just on one side. It's very pretty. It's warm enough for fall and winter, but perhaps too warm for our extremely hot desert summers. Overall though it seems like the perfect weight. Not too heavy but soft and cozy. We have a very tall king size mattress and box spring, and the king comforter doesn't quite cover the box spring. Wish it was a few inches longer on each side. I think this will be remedied though by switching to a lower profile box spring so my bed's not so tall. But overall, a good value and pretty set.
I'm not going to pretend that polyester is the same quality as perhaps some designer manufacturers might use in their products. I am really happy with it and with the price of the set. This set is beautiful. Be aware that the floral pattern is on one side of the bed only, not both side. In other words, one person will have the design over him and the other person's side will be plain. It works though. The comforter did not slip off me at night, which is very important to me . Of equal importance is its beauty. It is really lovely and looks just like the picture. Be careful though; unlike some web pages, it was not so clear to me that several designs were offered and you had to choose one. I fortunately ordered the one I wanted, but was a little concerned for a minute when I went back to refresh my memory on what I had ordered after a few days. The colors match my decor well. My walls are called "Smooth Stone". It's neutral with perhaps a slight sage tinge. Not sure yet about the lime decorative pillow. I'll decide later when my room is complete, but adding a different one is no big deal. As for warmth of the comforter: I was warm and my room was at about 66-67 degrees. I had a top sheet and then between that and the comforter one of those microfibre blankets that are so comfy yet light.. The comforter went on top and I felt like I was in a cocoon that was not heavy resting on my toes. I could move around, lift my feet, turn over, etc. Can't tell you how it will wash though 'cause I just got it yesterday.
Just received this 7-piece comforter set and I am very pleased with it. Like other reviewers have mentioned, the color is more of a mint green than an aqua blue but that's exactly what I wanted to match my sheets. The quality is really nice, too, and it seems like it will be durable. Overall, this was a great purchase at a great price.
This is the second purchase of this same exact set. It matches my beautiful curtains in our bedroom perfectly and the dog and grandchildren have done a number on the last set. The weight of the comforter is very light, yet warm. The only complaint I have is that they come with a wrinkle around where you would put the throw pillows and I have not gotten that out ever. I did not iron them though or wash it as I was scared it would ruin them. Now that I have the second set as a back up I will though. This is not a set you want to purchase if you have animals sleeping with you as the comforter will catch. It has worn very well though. We have had it for two years already. I only ordered the second set because I was afraid it would go out of stock and the colors of this set are gorgeous. It is a minty green. Not blue. I would recommend this set though, even though it may sell more from the review and I hope it never goes out of stock. :) I am a middle ages woman with hot flashes at night this comforter is perfect weight. If you are looking for something very warm and heavier not the set for you.
This is, without a doubt one of the best comforter sets I've ordered. We purchase Madison Park often, because the comfort and quality far exceed the affordable price range. This set is a gorgeous icy blue (it looks a little more green in the picture) and the accented colors are just splendid! We bought for our cabin bedroom, and the green throw pillow matches our lounge chair in the the room perfectly. I could not be more satisfied with the overall look, feel and quality of the comforter set. If you're seeking a quality set at an affordable cost you'll never be sorry if you invest in Park Madison.
This is a beautiful comforter for a great price. The color is exactly what you see in the picture, however some would describe it as blue and others may think it's a green. I think it's a true aqua. It matches my tan bedroom perfectly and brightens it up quite a bit. I don't know how long the comforter is going to last though, the fabric seems delicate and may pull easily.
When I am lying in my bed under this wonderful comforter, pillows stacked up behind me, reading a book, I feel so princess. The material is a bit more slick then I thought it would be, but the pillows don't shoot out from under my head nor do I have to pick the comforter off the floor every morning. It is a nice weight. I'm sure for summer, I will remove the down comforter I have on the bed too. The colors are so lovely. The pattern is as well, but as someone else wrote, the shams don't go left and right. This really doesn't bother me. However, the bed skirt is really long. I guess that is more elegance. In closing, I would recommend this set as a great buy.
Bought this set for my guestroom and couldn't be more pleased! Love the modern asymmetrical print, and the color is a real seafoam -- sort of shifts from a pale greeney blue to a bluey green. Cools the room visually and brightens the neutral walls without looking hot -- a real plus in our desert summer! Instead of a headboard, we hung three-dimensional white ceramic birds in flight on the wall above it, and it looks like they just rose from the trees in the print. Have not yet slept under it, but my guests raved about the softness of the microfiber surface. Like it so much I just ordered the duvet cover so I can prolong the life of the set when it starts to wear. Also got the matching shower curtain to have a valance made from it. Wish there were draperies, too! Only thing I didn't like was the olive-green brocade throw pillow, which I think clashes, but I plan to re-cover it in a color I think goes better in the future. Haven't washed it yet, so I can't say how it holds up to that.
This comforter set is beautiful! In redoing my bedroom I selected the Madison Park Athena set because I loved the colors. I painted one wall to match and when I put it all together it looked absolutely lovely. I feel the set is well made and the pillows compliment it all so nicely. All I have to do now is change my headboard and when I get that I will post a picture with it all together.
This is a beautiful set and very good quality. HOWEVER you should know that it is not a true light or powder blue but an aqua blue and they grey is more of a tan, especially when you put the striped pillow with it. Also the print is REALLY on one side of the bed only and covers only, probably, 1/3 of the top of the bed so it is, mostly, an aqua blue comforter.
I bought this comforter set for my first apartment, and I absolutely love it. It is extremely chic, and really sets the tone for my bedroom. I did read on other reviews that the pattern isn't where you would assume from the picture and this is true. However, if you just flip it over and place the tag at the top of the bed it looks just like the picture. It's really great I would definitely recommend it.
I was pleased as soon as unboxed this bedspread. It's lovely with its elegant touches of silvers and teals. However, the 3 decorative pillows are a bit too much. I won't put them on my bed. In fact, I may throw them away as find that they're just unnecessary. The two pillow shams are enough additional decor. My only complaint is that the blanket literally baked in my dryer! When I took it out, half of the spread had hardened on one side and was hopelessly wrinkled. I knew the baking was my fault. My dryer wasn't large enough for the blanket to tumble and dry evenly throughout. I contacted customer care and told them of the defect. They promptly sent me another set. When it arrived I took it to a laundry mat. After I removed it from the washer, I closely monitored the blanket in the over sized dryer; taking care to remove it every 5-7 minutes to readjust. It dried quickly and evenly after that and there were no wrinkles. The blanket is a really nice addition to your bedroom. But take care to note that your dryer must be large enough for it to tumble and dry evenly.
I already own this comforter set but after having it for almost 5 years, it's gotten a little dingy because of pets and what not. So, I'm having to replace my comforter but I'm buying this one again because I like it so much. It's a beautiful comforter, the embroidery is well done, very soft material on the underside, and the material on the top is the same as the decorative pillows and is a nice material as well (not scratchy, as I had feared it might be when I first bought it online). I'm very pleased with this set; it has held up considerably well over the years. The smaller decorative pillows have held up very well too, embroidery, color and all.
Great set! The color is more of a mint green, but that's exactly what I was looking for. The colors are soft and muted, just enough to give a little color to your bedroom. The 3 accent pillows that are included with the set are a definite plus. Great quality for the price. I also purchased the matching shower curtain. I like neutral colors in my house, so I decided to purchase these just to add some color to my décor and the bedroom and bathroom look great.
I bought this set for our master bedroom and love the soft colors. The only complaint I have is the quality of the two accent pillows. The square green one seems totally out of place. The rectangular, striped one is too small and cheaply made, so we don't use it. Other than these two pillows, I love the set.
I am thrilled with this comforter set. The color is very accurate to me. There is a sheen to the fabric that some might not like so much, but it is fine with me. I generally like to be able to flip the comforter, top and bottom, just to get more mileage before washing, but the pattern is really only "correct" with it laid out as pictured. It is not an overall design, so there is a top and a bottom. The pillows are the big bonus to me. The are high quality, and lend more options to coordinating colors in the room. I picked up the lime green for my lamp shade on the night stand. Overall, I must give this 5 stars.
