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.
I bought this set for summer. I wanted something with greens and aqua that didn't totally wipe out the white. It is perfect. It does get pretty wrinkled in the dryer but not a big deal for me. I had been looking for a long time and found this set on another site which was a bit pricey. I googled it and found a great deal on Overstock for $$ all total. The greens are as stated in similiar reviews: probably sage, a darker muted green and almost an apple green. Thanks Overstock!
I went from a very dark brown bedroom to this. I was looking for the right colors to really brighten my room without having to paint the walls. This was the perfect choice and perfect mix of colors. I feel lime I'm at a retreat. Duvet softens when washed and colors are vibrant. Pairs beautifully with white sheer curtains. The only thing that I would change would be to make it oversized. I have a 4 inch pad on my king bed and it seems a little short.
It took me a while to actually complete this purchase. I wanted something really light and summery, for the warmer months. I kept coming back to this pattern and finally bought it. It's very pretty but the colors are actually darker than what the photo shows. The lighter green, which makes up most of the pattern, is probably closer to the darker green leaves. It's still very pretty and I'm happy with the effect in my bedroom. It would have gotten another star if the thread count was higher.....not so soft :(.
