This set makes me happy to look at because it also looks like art against a dark gray headboard. It might be a little "crispy" after one wash, but it still lays well. It's still soft and I like to hang out with my bedding especially on a cloudy day. I work with a lot of color, it is not olive nor a bright lime. The photo on Overstock is very close to real-life. I even like making my bed so I can see as much color as I can. That's a lot to be said!
