Picture is misleading, but still quite nice
on 3 October 2011
I must point out (as other reviews have) that the colours are NOT as shown in the picture. While the picture shows it to be a striking duck-egg colour, it is in fact a dusky pastel blue, and the flowers are not as bright. The same goes for the same product in 'Olive', which seems vibrant green, yet is actually a dusky olive yellow-green. I found this out by putting the bedsets in my basket, one from amazon and one from a different seller, and saw the colour of the photo changed. Other seller showed the bright aqua colour, whereas the amazon preview showed a much more accurate pastel blue. No idea why.
That said, I didn't let this deter me. After all, bedsets *always* look nicer on the photo, sadly. It is disappointing, but a good enough product. I have no problem with the material- a softer duvet set I had previously went bobbly and horrible, so I wanted a slightly stiffer/stronger, smoother set this time round. I have just washed it and I'm sure it will be fine.
