The duvet is exactly the correct colors for my room, for winter and summer. It matches both sets of curtains. Unfortunately, the underside and sides where the are no pleats, is extremely thin. I have two cats who sleep, run and play on my bed and noting from other thicker covers I have, there will be holes in the duvet in no time at all. Even without kitties, it may be a problem. Not sure if I will keep it or not. But the set is beautiful.
I loved the colors and design of this set. However, laying on top of it was very uncomfortable--the fabric is too shiny and slippery. The multiple seams and pleats that create the stripes are also uncomfortable. I returned and the search continues.
The color and fabric are beautiful. The fabric specifically looks very rich. Good quality and best of all it is machine washable. Bought this for my daughter's dorm room and it has been ooh-ed and ahh-ed by the girls who have seen her bed. Paired with some shears and teal colored 3-d cranes that made for a very contemporary look in her room.
I didn't expect this bedding to be as nice as it is since it was such a bargain. I was pleasantly surprprised! The blue sections of this resemble raw silk. The buttons are well hidden. The throw pillows don't look cheap and are nice and plump. Looks far more expensive than it cost!
