I bought the blue version of this duvet cover for a Queen with white sheets. The white behind the blue is maybe a subtle, barely noticeable shade darker than white but it's in no way a deal breaker for me. Texture of the fabric is very soft and it washes well - I don't even need to iron it (if you take it fresh out of the dryer). Love the reversible quality - I use the white side at night and then fold it over to the bluer side for a blanket accent to a white quilt during the day. Only qualm is that it's a bit big for my full sized duvet so definitely expect to fill it with a queen size duvet for a snug fit.
I chose the green. It's not oversized, but the price was right to use it until we figure out what we want to do with our room. Has a nice feel and washed well. Heads up that the print looks stamped--the cream design is not solid, it has kind of a sketched look.
I got the green one. It washed very well. It's very soft, looks great on the twin size bed. The other side is cream colour with green pattern, not white with green but it looks great. I wanted the red one but it was sold out. Great price for this product comparing to department stores in Canada.
I really like this duvet cover. Goes perfectly with our light royal blue sheets. easy to put on (though I've put duvet covers on a down comforter before) and looks great. couldn't decide which side to face up on the bed, but i guess i can switch it around whenever i feel like it when I'm making the bed for the day! Very happy...BTW I bought the honey and it is beautiful. I wanted it almost a year ago but it was sold out and I settled for a different cover completely and I am much happier with this one!
While I love how it looked in the pictures, there was no mention of it have a weird smell that goes far beyond sizing and dyes. It really truly smells, I am going to try washing it a few more times before maybe, I dunno, putting it out on the back porch for the bench..I have no idea what to do with this, but if I cant get the smell out, I can't use it. And yes it came right out of the package smelling this way. My family smelled it from the other side of the room when I opened it, so I know its not my nose..its this duvet. Shame really, since it is VERY lovely. Just smelly.
I got two of these in Taupe (Full/Queen) to update and lighten-up a guest room with two full beds. After laundering, they are nice & soft, not heavy, but substantial, and cover my Full/Queen comforters nicely. It's great to be able to reverse the colors if you like, too! I will be adding some ties inside the duvet covers, and also on the comforters, to keep shifting to a minimum, but I wouldn't discourage anyone from trying there out!
