I bought this for my guest room after looking at MANY duvet covers. I couldn't pass up the price for a queen duvet and 2 shams. The duvet is very soft and looks great. The leaf pattern is metallic silver while the bands are a dark gray, blueish/green gray and white. I purchased a white bedskirt which goes well with the duvet. The shams that are included fit nicely. I have not washed it yet so don't know how well it holds up but one of the selling points for me is that it is machine washable. If you are going to add accent pillows the light gray is a little hard to match, depending on the light it has a blue or green tint.
I love this duvet cover set. The one hesitation I had in the beginning was in the softness department. When I first got it, it wasn't as soft as I thought it would be. However after washing it, it was a lot softer and I have no complaints. I would recommend washing it inside out so as to keep the flower pattern on there. As stated in other reviews, the flower pattern is pressed on top, not woven in, so wash delicately. To brighten/warm it up, I have some warm yellowish gold tone sheets with two turquoise pillows and one golden yellow pillow. It's modern, warm, and beautiful. I wish I could post a picture on here, because I took a bunch. Overstock should add that option on reviews! :) Overall, I love the duvet cover set. It's not the greatest quality in the world, but it really is great for the price and for the look. Again, once you wash it it will be a lot softer than when you first receive it.
The product arrived promptly, colors were exactly as shown on the website. It washes well, but wrinkles a little. The ivy going up one side adds just the right amount of understated bling, while helping to keep the bedroom calm. Really pleased.
Very Nice.The white is very crisp and clean looking.I like the leafy design along the side of the duvet cover and shams.I like the clean lines of the shams.The only thing that bothers me just in the slightest is that the design gets covered up if you turn down the top white section when the bed is made or even covered by the pillows.But what can you do really?It`s going to happen if you have pillows..lol.The middle grey strip is more of a grey-blue but the bottom grey stripe is a true darker grey.The feeling of the fabric that touches you is soft,the side that doesn`t is a little rougher but not enough to annoy me.
Very skimpy for a Queen bed/ I had to reorder the King

The quality seemed fine, but I never actually used it or washed it. It just was not the color we wanted. The leaves on the duvet are very shiny. My 11 year old really like it, but it wasn't for her bed! My husband said it reminded him of cheap iron-ons.
After reading the reviews and Q&A section, I decided to go ahead with this purchase anyway. Much to my delight, it did come with the pillow cases that have the design on them and not just standard white shams. This is by far one of the most beautiful duvet covers I own and it's very comfortable! Absolutely love it!
Does not look like the picture - at all. Think that's grey? Think again. More of a periwinkle/pewter/lavender mix. Think that ivy is understated and rather nice? Think again. That's glitter you're looking at - grey glitter ivy branches. I was hoping for an understated yet kind of nice duvet cover but this is not it. I am a single male and thought it would at least hint at masculinity - it does not. But hey! if you like grey glitter ivy and lavender this is the spread for you!! (it is nice and soft and the white is a brilliant white - a bad choice with anyone with pets or kids....or who eats oreos in bed).
Love it! Nicer than I had expected. Other reviews said it is rough, not soft, and wrinkly. Well it comes wrinkled and stiff but softens after one wash and doesnt wrinkle if you take it out of the dryer and shake it out. The white is softer than the gray but the gray is only at the foot of the bed anyway.
This duvet looks great and feels nice - it's not the best quality but it's soft. My only dislike with it is that it wrinkles very easily with regular use and extremely after washed. I had to iron it out some, which was a bit tideous.

I was looking for a grey and white duvet to go with my cool, pale grey bedroom. This is perfect. Yes, I had to iron it a little when I washed it but it is cotton! The dark grey part is darker than it appears in the photo. The light grey ivy is shimmering. I like the hidden button closure and the shams are like pillowcases. Love, Love it. Very Zen-like.
