I have other Laura Ashley products, and I think they're a solid choice for an average suburban home. This set was offered at a great price & did not disappoint. The color was true to what I saw on the web page, the sizing was a real queen size (not a full-queen, which is a cheat if you're buying for a queen bed), the comforter is warm and light. The reverse color, with a white background and lighter blue and yellow flowers, is lovely. This comforter is too big for me to wash at home, so I have to either have it dry cleaned for $30 a pop, or go to a place that has a large commercial washer. The bed-skirt is versatile enough to use with other blue-yellow-white bed covers/quilts/comforters, so that's a plus. The shams are nicely cushioned, nicely made, and fit a standard pillow well. I'm pleased with my purchase; bargain price & good quality.
