It mentions purple/lavender in the description but there is only one row of it and NONE on the pillow shams. A real disappoint for my college student's bedroom. She is using it but we wanted more lavender strips and especially wanted them on the pillow shams. Needs better description and picture.
The Duvet Cover set arrived in a timely manner, and the packaging was in good condition. The duvet cover was better than I had even hoped. It is slightly larger than most of the other advertised duvet covers--which is really nice as it hangs over the side of the bed. The colors are somewhat muted and so they really blend in to any room color. The material is an excellent quality, soft cotton. Wonderful for the summer as the colors are cooling in this unseasonably hot weather. Very pleased with purchase.
I was pleased with the appearance of the cover but surprised at how thin the material was. I was even cautious in placing the duvet and pillows for fear the material might rip. Considering the weight of the material, I think the item was over priced.
I looked at every single king-sized duvet and comforter set on Overstock.com for about a week before finally settling on this one. It was sort of an impulse thing - I was tired of looking, but more tired of my old bedding so I just went with this one. It'd been catching my eye the whole week, but I thought I wanted something more feminine and elaborate. Well, I'm glad I went with this. The colors are feminine without scaring off the boys and the aesthetic is soothing and neutral without being boring - exactly what you want to see and feel when settling down into bed. The colors will match many different types of decor and make me think of a vacation beach house. A nice one maybe on Martha's Vineyard - you know, sort of upscale clean look that's not over the top. But really I'm just happy that it is so inviting. I'm a bright color person for everything else, but your bedroom should be a sanctuary and this set would help complete that look in many different style bedrooms. The set is also comfortable - the top portion is a little ruched, but the underside is smooth. I haven't checked the tag to confirm that it's 100% cotton, but it certainly feels it. Soft, yet strong and seems like it'll be durable. The shams are well made, though you wouldn't want to sleep on them because they are also ruched. They're exactly as pictured. One reviewer complained that there was only one lavender stripe and they were expecting more purple. There is one *section* of lavender stripes, but it's about 1/3 of the comforter... which is exactly what you see in the pictures. So, I'm not sure what they were expecting. The bottom of the comforter is a button enclosure, but they are hidden (inner buttons so that you never touch them) so you could turn the comforter which ever way you prefer. It's also extremely large, so fits a king mattress well with some overhang on all sides. One recommendation: make sure to check the size of the duvet you have - I had to purchase an oversized one. Which is fine with me - the comforter version of this set had reviews stating that it was warm, so I went with the duvet set so that I could purchase a light duvet to put in it - but others may expect this to fit their duvet and I think it would be a bit large on most regular king duvets. I am very pleased I went with my gut and got this set. It will be a piece I can keep for a long time.
My husband and I purchased this duvet cover since our other cover wasn't 100% cotton and we were getting too hot at night. (Mind you, we are 30 - so no heat flashes - haha!) We searched the web for a duvet cover that not only fit the room decor, but that was also 100% cotton in hopes that we'd sleep cooler. It is an improvement ... but not a complete turn around. We like the colors and stripes & appreciate that it did come with the pillow shams - as some we looked at were sold separately. I think once it cools down, that we'll love this even more!
This was my first time buying a duvet cover online. This implies not touching the fabric or really seeing what the colors look like. Man, Am I glad I bought this. The fabric is soft (after washing it once), it looks very durable, and the colors are even prettier in person. I received it soon after the purchase and there were no complications. I am truly happy I bought it. Also, what a bargain, little money for such quality. I highly recommend it!!
