My husband and I are living in Virginia temporarily on a job assignment and renting a furnished condo. He only had sheets and a blanket and I needed some more warmth and comfort when I joined him out here. I thought that since the comforter was not thick it would not be warm enough in all this cold weather, but it proved us wrong. So besides its warmth, it also warms up the room with its vibrant colors. I plan on taking it back with me to the west coast when we return.
