I was looking for a duvet cover that would be just a little different. This cover is not only beautiful but very soft. I use it for my summer comforter and it has brightened up my room perfectly. I wanted something light and airy and not kid like. My queen size duvet fits perfectly and doesn't shift around inside. The fabric is very soft against skin and it's easy to wash and quick to dry. The colors are exactly what I saw on my moniter and luckily I just painted my bedroom the exact color in the picture! A great value.
The colors are very pretty. They are a little more muted than what appears on my computer screen; Greens are more of a sage, leaf and citron. I really like the duvet cover and am keeping it because of the colors (I had a color palette in mind and this fit the bill), BUT there are two things buyers should be aware of: 1. The fabric is not very soft. It MIGHT get better with a number of washings, but I've only washed once. I'm using in a 2nd bedroom and, well, thankfully one sleeps in between sheets rather than on the duvet cover. 2. After washing and drying, the fabric gets VERY wrinkled. The duvet in my bedroom does this too, and I'm fine with it... but if that will drive you nuts, be prepared to whip out the iron.
You cannot return this item if you unwrap it, but I took the chance and took it out of the package. I washed it, hoping to soften the look, feel, and the wrinkles, but it didn't help. There are also a few lavender, purple, and aqua-colored flower stems in the main body of the piece if you want them to be there.
This duvet and shams is a fun and bright addition to any bedroom. The only thing that surprised me was the strange blue stripe pattern on the backside. I purchased it for the rainforest look, so won't be using the reverse side anyway, but you should be aware of it. I washed and dried it and it was wrinkle free!
Beautiful colors, and the bright blue stripped reversible side is just an added adorable touch! I love the button closure, at the bottom, too! But the thin material causes it to wrinkle easily in the wash. It's not enough for me to lower the star rating however! I would buy this again!
