This is the first NN jacquard cotton bed set I have bought and it is a bit of a disappontment. I bought the champagne / white option. The pattern and colour is fine but the linen feels a bit coarse, esp the bottom sheet. Also, the fitted sheet was a bit of a toil to put on over my mattress and memory foam topper. I was getting somewhat frustrated with it!
I am hoping that the linen will soften with repeated washing but I am dreading that the sheet may shrink :(
If I had paid full price for the bed set, it would definately have been returned.

Stunning, Opulent, Comfortable beyond measure! You would never believe it is only 300 thread count to look at it. The duvet set arrived last Thursday and is now washed, line dried and then pressed and put on the bed. It is as beautiful looking as I imagined it would be. I bought the Champagne/white for our room; in King size (we have a double bed) to accommodate the ultra deep mattress and deep feather bed. I do agree with another review in that it is more of a buttermilk ivory than the very pale ivory depicted in the photo's on the website. Nevertheless, it is perfect for our décor... After one nights sleep, this definitely will NOT be going back! Having already purchased the Berry colour some time ago (at least two years ago) for our second guest room I know too that the set will become much softer as time progresses. My only issue with this is the white valance which is too light for our colour scheme, the Gingerbread shade is too dark to match the rest of the room. So I have used an existing valance in a slightly darker but acceptable ivory/cream colour which also has a jacquard weave. I am totally blown away by the look and feel of this NN Duvet set to say that it is only 300 thread count (tc).
Well done NN, top marks again!
PS. I would have loved to buy another Berry in King Size but alas, you have sold out so I have purchased the TSV 600tc Clarence Scroll, today, in white, as a replacement in the guest room. I wait with baited breath!!

I love this set, it is so silky and soft I bought the Ginger and Cream the colours could not be better as have gold curtains, all blends in very well.
I prefer the 300tc as the higher tc is too silky and makes you hot, does not seem to be as breathable.

so disappionted with this set
i ordered this set as i needed another set of bedlinen, when it arrived i was soooooo disappionted it does not stand up to my previous NN set. I think its because its 300TC and my other one is 450TC , The other issue I have is the colour its too pink on one side and aubergine on the other, love the aubergine but hate the pink.It reminds me of old lady bedlinen was too fussy for me , however if youve never tried NN you might like it. Think we need to go up a thread count and try Kelly Hoppen weve been spoiled .
