cb2 order review

first off, shipping was very fast! they ship UPS (which automatically is a thumbs-up for me - i dont like fedex) - and it arrived at my door step with in 3 days of receiving the notice that it shipped.
everything was perfect. 

the shower curtain $39.99
it is a heavy weight - which for fabric is a HUGE plus to me. while i liked and still do like the other curtain we had - this one is what i was looking for when i bought the other one. it is simple but still makes a statement, in my opinion.
i love how it looks in our space. in the photo is it not hung where we will place it - i just had to throw it up for a quick photo and to see it in action :) 
in person, it really makes the room appear bigger than it is - especially wider. i might replace our rugs (and move the new tan ones down into our master bath) with grey but i am not sure. if i can tie in some tan i may keep them there for an accent sort of color - thoughts?

pillow cases: 2 standard for $19.99
(*this is not an accurate representation of color)
king duvet cover: $89.95

the bed photos are a pretty accurate representation of their color.
i give both of these a big thumbs up as well. from the website, they had received great reviews, but i was still a touch uncertain about the 100% organic cotton piece - if they would be soft or rough. soft they are. 
it is very obvious the comforter is too large for our queen bed. also, i fear the old bed skirt needs to go as well (lol, im happy actually, it never really was my style :) now the question is: cream or a grey skirt and sheets?
my grandma gave us a king size down comforter and i wanted to start using it! we are looking to upgrade our bed to a king as well as replace the rest of the bedroom furniture in the near future.
its gorgeous. what can i say. if the print is your style that is. i can appreciate not everyone would love it. 
we skipped the sheet set. while i like it, and had we a new bed already i have to admit id probably have purchased them as well (another $90+/-). but - i think in the end i will be perhaps happy we did not. i think some plain sheets will help not overwhelm the print in the room - and a few pillows in a solid color will be nice as well.

reading through my reviews - i realize i suck at giving them! especially when things get a "thumbs up"! if you have questions please ask and i will do by best to answer!
