Bought this set for my son who is in college. It was a very good value for everything and looks very nice on the bed. Everything was as pictured. The pillow covers and duvet have zippers which I like better than buttons, which tend to fall off after washing. The Euro pillows are ivory but in the duvet the white is more pure. Overall I was very happy with this purchase.
This product looks manly or boy friendly in the picture, so I ordered for my boyfriend. The product did not look like the picture. It is a black and white plaid and does not look grey at all, which would have been fine if that matched the colors in his room, but it didn't. I felt the blue and gold pillow in the picture would not match the comforter, after seeing it in person. They shipped a frilly white pillow and shiny silver pillow with the set. The grey pillow did not match either. The shams were a dark brown. I don't know if the wrong ones were shipped or what. Overall, I was not impressed with what I received, and I shipped it back.
The duvet cover and pillow cases are exactly as pictured. They are soft, breathable and very good looking. However, the queen-size duvet is not easy to center inside the cover. It'd be nice if there were an inner pocket to hold the duvet in place since the cover is actually larger in order to hang over the edges of the bed. Also, I'm not very fond of the throw pillows that were included. They have a sheen to them that does not appeal to me. The gray one is tolerable, but the pearl white one will not be seen on my bed! Overall, I am happy with my purchase, and I think this is a great deal compared to the other sets I saw during my research.
