I've been on the hunt for a new comforter set to redo our bedroom. I've been looking and looking for the perfect shade of brown/cream/greige to match the dark brown and light blue color scheme I'm going for, and it's been HARD. Pinterest makes it look SO easy to make a perfectly color-schemed room come together!


I think I found the PERFECT colored comforter at target.com. And the reviews are mixed. Overall, it has a 4.5/5 star score. But some of the reviews give it ONE star, saying it ripped in the washing machine, or that it was a pain in the ass to wash and dry. Everyone else seems to think this comforter is amazing.

Do You Let Online Reviews Affect Your Purchasing Decisions?

But the negative reviews have me wondering if I should chance it, or move on and try to find something else...this color is just SO PERFECT, though! I can't find this exact color anywhere else, so I don't know what to do!

Should I ignore the reviews and hope for the best (and risk the hassle of returning it if it doesn't work out?), or err on the side of caution and try to find something else?

Help me, GT!
