Arrived within the expected timeframe. Great condition. Beautiful duvet set with a bit of a sheen to it. It definitely has more green in it than blue like some reviews have said (I was hoping for more of a light blue/teal like the pictures showed). We've decided to keep it despite the colour variance and just readjust our colour scheme slightly. If colour is your concern, I would HIGHLY suggest that people check out the Benjamin Moore colour swatch 'PALLADIAN BLUE' (HC-144)--- it appears to match the duvet cover exactly. I hope that helps.
I loved the color online and the color in person was even better! It is a beautiful seaform green/teal. The sun reflects so beautifully on in the morning. The material was SO much better than I was anticipating. The texture is soft, luxurious and satan like. The accent pillows come with the sewn in pillow cases as well. The material is amazing, MUST have, I would recommend this to anybody.
This duvet cover has more sheen to it than the image suggests, but is stunning and has a silky feel to it. The greys are somewhat more pronounced than they appear in the image, and the green is also brighter, but the set looks beautiful on my bed. It is also extremely comfortable to sleep under. I was apprehensive purchasing from overstock, especially on a product with no reviews at the time, but my fears were unfounded. I live in Canada and expected substantial delays in receiving my product, but it arrived well within the promised delivery date, and I was able to follow it via tracking number the whole time. I am extremely happy with this purchase and would absolutely buy from overstock again.
I bought this set for a queen bed in a studio apartment. As my bed is in plain view, I wanted something that would add to the decor and brightness of my studio, as opposed to my rumpled old grey duvet. I especially like that it came with a set of pillows, which really helps make my bed look more like a day bed. While I agree with some others that the lime green pillow is, well, quite green, I don't think it is an eye sore. Given that most duvet sets cost more than this and little throw pillows can be surprisingly expensive, I thought this was a great value and very convenient - who wants to go out and buy pillows to match a comforter cover? As for the duvet itself, it looks exactly as pictured. I'm surprised to hear others say that it didn't match their expectations (perhaps the picture used to be different). It is definitely a seafoam blue. The cover has a nice, soft sheen to it that makes it look rich, and I love the pattern. It is also very comfortable. All in all, a great buy that will add style to any bedroom.
I receive the package, with high hope, but end out regret: it is not as nice as it shows in the picture. (1) material: it is thin on the inner side, and definitely not breathable as the cotton. I already know it is Polyester when i bought it, and normally for bedding I won't touch anything if it is not cotton. But i decided to take a chance to try this Polyester duvet, trade the material to the beauty since so many reviews claim it is soft, beautiful, luxury, etc, However, I was imminently regret the second I touched it -- the pillow, the duvet, none of them feel comfortable when touching the skin. I possibly will end up to use a cotton pillow case and have a flat sheet separate the duvet from body. so this may only serve the decoration purpose. (2) Color: it is darker then it shows in the picture. shows more gray than the white, and most of right half of the duvet doesn't have any prints. in a bed room with yellowish lighting instead of natural lighting as in the picture, the whole set looks quite upset in my eyes. the white flower prints only shows as reflection under the lighting, and not give enough white to balance the rest of gray and blue. so as summary, i am quite disappointing with my purchase, it is not comfortable and it is not beautiful as in the picture. if i buy it in a local store, i would have return it by now.
This was a beautiful duvet and I was pleasantly surprised. The accompanying pillows are high quality and add just the right touch of contrast. Colors are accurate to the pictures and I would recommend this to anyone who is looking for an elegant and subtle color addition to your bedroom.
The custom duvet cover that was on my bed was so heavy that it crushed my toes but this one is sturdy and light as air. I love the color and the decorative pillows make for perfection.

I loved the colors and even painted the master bedroom to match. Used it and washed it. Hmm- small amount of puckering in the center of design. Used and washed again. This time most of the middle was horribly puckered as if threads were pulled and snagged and puckered. Tried to iron but still a mess. Never again as I just threw away $XXX.XX. This is now in linen closet to stay. Make sure you buy cotton and not poly.
The product is basically nice, The pattern and the color as well as the pillows are very nice, however the cover is too large for a queen comforter. It should be sized for a queen, not queen/king. I find that my comforter gets lost inside the cover and I constantly have to re adjust the duvet cover.
This duvet comforter set is lovely. The color green is more of a mint green and is very pretty. I don't understand why they iused an avocado pillow cover for the larger pillow. The only area on the set where there is any avocado is on one thin line of trim of the oblong pillow. it just seems they could have used another color, i.e., either an entire light aqua or a reverse of the smaller square pillow. Other than that, I really like it and would definitely recommend it to a friend.
Product was delivered as described. Although delivery via DHL was a little slow and their tracking site is not updated frequently, this product was received none the less. Would recommend overstock.com to others. The live chat feature for inquires is extremely useful. Lovely color of duvet with all pieces included. Thanks
Overstock really did a good job showing the actual color of the duvet compared to other websites I saw it on. It is a sea foam green with taupe and silver branches running along one side. One of the accent pillows is a lime green color. The comforter is machine washable with button closure and ties on the inside of each corner to keep your comforter inside in place. I washed the duvet on the delicate cycle and ran it through my dryer on the delicate cycle with no problem. I have also pressed the duvet twice without any problems. I was worried about this duvet in reading some of the other reviews but I have two cats and a dog that have been on the comforter every night without any snags.
I really liked this duvet cover when I saw it online, but alas, it didn't meet my expectations when I saw it in person. I could tell as I was pulling it out of the package that the fabric was very thin and cheap-feeling. I put my duvet into it anyway, just to see how it looked on the bed. The color is much more of a minty green in person and not the pretty teal that the picture shows. The fabric was rough feeling, not at all comfortable, and had a sheen to it that I hadn't expected. As I was trying to put the duvet on the bed, the duvet kept sliding around inside the cover, even with the corners tied to keep that from happening. The kicker, though, was numerous "snagged" spots on the cover where the threads had pulled. I packaged everything back up and returned it. I will say, though, if you're looking to decorate a guest bedroom or something where it won't be used much, you might like the set. Even with the color being different than I expected, the set looked nice enough.
