Although the peacock feather embroidery is very beautiful and well-done, the color of the fabric used for the duvet & shams is a horrible greyish, dead-looking color. It's nothing like the picture shown on the website. Had to return it due to the awful fabric color. As always, Overstock was very helpful and gracious with the return process.

I took a chance with virtually no reviews on this product and I was very impressed! The embroidery is beautifully done and shimmers in the light. You won't be disappointed with the quality of the stitching. The one review I had to go from said that the color of the duvet is much darker than pictured, and that's true. It's actually a dark khaki color. Pay close attention to the photo because it was obviously taken under bright lights. The curtains in the background are white, so don't expect the duvet itself to be white or even a light tan. The linen is a very attractive but darker neutral that will go nicely with dark wood furniture. I can't comment on how the duvet washes or wears, but if you're liking the large embroidery then go for it and see for yourself!
Love this duvet! It is good quality and comfortable. I'm glad the other reviews mentioned it was a khaki color. I personally prefer that to the white I thought it was originally. The embroidery is well done overall great value and purchase.
I really like the peacock design, but was expecting white. Due to the khaki/gray color of the fabric, I had to get creative by pairing livelier sheets. This is a nice, gender neutral set for the lady looking to decorate without going overboard on girlish colors.
The color was not all what I expected---kind of like a gray clay. The embroidery was beautiful. Even so, I was going to return it until my husband said he like it. Now it is on our bed and I am getting used to it. The material is very soft and feels good against my skin. But it is really lacking in color and needs colorful pillows and/or sheets to perk it up. The picture of it was very deceiving.
I love this duvet set. The color is a light dove gray color and the embroidery on the piece is stunning in vibrant colors. The material is soft and not too heavy and the pillowcases in the king set are big enough for extra full down king size pillows. I am not sure how it will wash, but for now this is a 10.
I love this! We are hot sleepers so now that summer is here I wanted something lighter and this is perfect for us. Its thin and I feel some people would be disappointed if there was not a comforter to insert or but I couldn't be more pleased. The only con is that when you wash and dry it, it wrinkles really bad. I hate ironing so that was a major blah moment for me but I still wouldn't return it. The feather embroidery is really nice as well. For the price I paid, I feel I got my moneys worth.
We sleep directly under a duvet cover with no flat sheet in between, so a duvet cover's fabric is at a special premium for us. This cotton disappoints on that point. It feels cheap and scratchy, even after a couple of washes. Here's hoping that a few more washes may soften things up. The feather design is not a print; it is embroidered on and looks pretty good, however I wonder about the long-term durability as there are already a few frayed threads. It looks good from a distance but looks about the price as you get closer. As others note, this pulls a little darker in person than shown in the photo. It is definitively not white; look at the other pillows and the flat sheet in the main photograph to see the dramatic contrast. It's grey, pulling towards an earthier putty color as opposed to straight black-and-white grey. It is unoffensive and neutral and should probably not disappoint unless you expected white, or require a specific shade of off-white. Overall, not terrible. You're getting about what you pay for.
