Marseilles Floral Valance
Many compliments already
I loved the picture of this set but I worried that the colors would not be as vibrant in person. Well, that was a needless worry...the quilt, dust ruffle and shams look great. Everyone who has seen it has been very complimentary. I purchased a queen size and since I have a foot board, I just bring the quilt to the bottom of the bed and there is more than enough fabric to turn over pillows at the head, like a regular bedspread. I added two of the coordinating lavender shams and the two patterned shams that came with the set, and it looks very nice!
The fabric is fairly heavyweight but it is still not too heavy to use in summer. My only negative is that the material wrinkles. I had to press it after shipping, but the wrinkles were difficult to iron out and, each morning when I make the bed it's hard to smooth it all out. Admittedly, I am VERY fussy about issues like that, and I'm hoping that with wear the fabric will relax a bit. But, all in all, I'm glad I made this purchase.
