This looks exactly as it does in the photo. I paired the purple one with dark purple sheets and I couldn't be happier. looks great. My only issue is that I bought the king size for a queen bed (like other reviewers who like an oversized comforter recommended) without thinking that it would come with king sized shams. so I have to buy some king sized pillows. But I should have realized that.
If you are looking for a sheet quality cover it is okay. I thought it would be more of a coverlet quality that would be more distinctively noticed as a cover. I feel like I bought 2 sheets that are sewed together and will not match whatever other sheets I put on my bed.
I like this duvet cover. I got the purple color. It's exactly like the picture. My walls are a neutral color yet the purple shade brings out the pink in my taupe wall color. My only complaints with the set are that it's not as soft as I hoped it would be--It doesn't really feel smooth like sateen (only 300 tc) and the shams only have flaps so they don't entirely cover the pillows inside them. I think this could be fixed with a few strategic pins. I have not washed this set yet, so I don't know how well it holds up in the wash, but I imagine it will be fine. For the price, you really can't go wrong with this set! It's a small price for a good investment. It would be great for a college dorm room, guest room, or modern/casual master bedroom.
