I am really happy with this duvet and pillow cases. I researched others and their reviews for several weeks before deciding on this one. The colors are true to the picture, at least the way the colors are set on my screen. The fabric is pretty soft and lightweight. A white blanket is needed for the inside as the fabric is pretty thin and a colored blanket would show through. Colors did not fade or bleed when washed.
I bought this duvet thinking it had nice yellows to go with my yellow accented color scheme. When I received it, I realized there is no yellow in it at all and the picture is not accurate in its color representation. The "yellows" in the image are more lime green and yellow green- definitely more green than yellow. The duvet itself is very nice quality. I did consider returning but haven't found a pattern that i liked as much and impressed with the quality and price decided I kept it.
I love this duvet because it is reversible so it gives my room a nice look. It isn't as soft as I'd like but I think a few washings will help with that. It fit nicely over my down comforter and the button closures work for the most part. My only complaint is that the colored flowers look yellow to me in the picture and they are more of a limey green. I was disappointed but still liked it enough to keep it.
This arrived VERY quickly and is very pretty...even my husband liked it. We didn't take it out of the package because I knew immediately that it would have to go back - the yellow is really more of a mustard, which is actually nicer looking than the yellow I thought it would be. But that yellow will not work for my room. The fabric felt very nice. Based on the apparent quality of this item, I ordered something different by the same manufacturer.
VERY PLEASED with this duvet cover set. Would you believe this City Scene Flower Duvet is my very first? A wonderful way to extend the life of my old down comforter. The reverse pattern feature adds character and charm to the bed.. the colors and patterns are nicely subdued.. the quality is good. I'm shopping for another now.. TX Overstock.com
I like the duvet cover, but the color on the website looks yellow, some peoples reviews said it was more mustard colored. However, when I received it, the color is more like a green than it is a yellow. It looks like a light, olive green and gray. It's still a really nice duvet cover but not was I expected.
I totally agree with the review that said the colors are not true to the description given. Although I felt the "yellow" was more toward the lime green color. I would have kept it if it were more of a mustard yellow, but it was to green for the design of the room so I returned it. It was sent quickly with no other issues.
