I was so excited to find this set, thinking it would be perfect for my teenage son's room. He, too, loved the colors and thought it would look great....and, it did....until we washed it. I am a stickler about laundry....always wash like things together and pay attention to the temperature being used. I washed the quilt by itself in cold water. Unfortunately, it came out with faded colors looking very "worn". I was extremely disappointed and really can't do anything about it now. My son is continuing to use it and it's "okay", but I'll end up needing something different before long....especially if we have any guests over.
