I said I would recommend this to a friend because the quality seems good, and because I've owned other Nautica brand items that have lasted a long time. HOWEVER, please be aware that it does look very different in person than in the pictures. The lines are not neat and clean looking on the design(as they appear to be in the photo), but rather more like a water-colored piece of artwork. Also, there is some yellow and blue coloring in the design that is not listed in the description, and that is fairly prominent. If you don't mind these things, then it would be a great purchase because of the quality and the softness of the duvet cover fabric.
I was really disappointed with the colors when I opened this up! It was described as off-white with beige/tan pattern. The only part that is correct is the tan/beige! It is very white, not off white as described but also has a lot of yellow and blue in it as well, which was not noted in the description. I will be sending this back and try again!
This is perfect for my beach rental! Light, and airy. Love the yellow and blue hues in cover. Only wish at this price, that the duvet came with corner ties. I had to sew these in myself. Good quality, seems a discontinued model, can't find matching items. The price should be clearance, not at $XXX.
