I decided to purchase this set after reading other reviews and searching hundreds of other comforter sets. I just moved into my first apartment and was a bit picky with what I wanted. When I took it out of the packaging, I noticed the comforter isn't the most comfortable thing ever, but it isn't bad either. I like all the pieces it comes with, but have had a hard time finding pillows to fit in the euro shams. I love that the design is only at the bottom of the comforter, as it doesn't overload your eyes with something so busy everywhere. The two throw pillows are very nice as well. Overall I would recommend this set to a friend as it is beautiful!
