I was nervous buying this set because I couldnt touch the bedding before purchase. BUT when I got it the sheets and comforter are SO soft! I am the type of person that has to have like three heavy blankets on the bed but with this comforter I actually get hot! so all I have on the bed is the sheets and comforter! My room is dark purple and my new furniture is black. This is a beautiful set with the my color scheme. And its perfect for my husband and I! He is more of a clean solid color type of person where as I enjoy a little design and color.
