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.
This duvet is very beautiful. I'm a single female in my 20s and it suits my needs just fine. I love the look of the crisp grey and white together and the design adds a nice touch. It has a button closure - kind of wish it had a zipper but that's minor. I've washed it once and it did okay on gentle cycle with a tumble dry. This is my first duvet and if I can keep it away from my pets, I think I will continue to be very pleased with this purchase!!
Good to have as a spare. Duvet cover shams are on the small side, fitting the standard pillow exactly. Based on the picture, you get the shams that are in front of the euro shams in the picture. Duvet cover itself is a bit stiff and would require ironing if you wanted it to be wrinkle free.
I love my duvet. Everyone compliments me on it and asks where I got it. I have the queen duvet and bought a queen insert from Ikea and it fits perfectly in the duvet. Although the overall duvet is a little smaller than most queen I still wouldn't trade it because I love the colors and the metallic silver vine. It is worth every penny if you don't mind the shorter length. ( In hind sight I probably should've ordered the king duvet for my queen bed.) I had searched a long time for a gray and white duvet but nothing else compared to the beauty of this one. I had to wait till it became in stock again ( overstock sent me an email when it became available) but soooo worth the wait.
This is a lovely duvet. The colors are true to the picture with the flowers being a shimmery, silver color. The shams also have the flower detail which really breaks up all the white at the top of the bed. There are no loops on the inside corners to hold the blanket in place but there haven't been issues with the blanket moving. I also like the size of the shams - they are the size of a normal pillow - not "king" pillow size like some shams that often leave tons of material. My regular pillows fit well but it might be snug if you have larger pillows. I recommend this purchase.
