I ordered this for my beach vacation house master bedroom. The design is a stylized sea urchin -perfect for a beach/shore theme. The color as shown on the internet photo is true to the actual color - very soft and dreamy. The description of the color is "purple" but I would describe it more as a light blue/purple background with taupey-purple accents. My walls are painted a light blue (with purple understones) and this matches perfectly. The sheeting fabric has a lovely sheen and is very soft. The pillows and eruo shams are a heavier fabric - a cotton duck that has good weight and body for a crisp look. Once again, Overstock.com has delivered!
This set definitely lived up to its reviews. The fabric has a lovely "hand", very soft and smooth -without feeling slippery. Everything is beautifully crafted: "Invisible" zippers on the large and accent pillow covers, ingenious recessed tube design for printed pillow covers means you never see the pillow in it, even when viewed from the side. Duvet cover has subtle piping on three sides (not at your neck). The zipper to get the comforter in is not at the bottom edge so the piping lies smooth. Instead is on the bottom side and set back a few inches from the end. It is so nicely and cleanly finished that, even though we don't use a top sheet, I don't even notice it with my toes! Craftsmanship (seamstress-ship?) is truly exceptional throughout. It all washes beautifully. I touch-up iron the patterned pillow covers (for a crisp edge) but do nothing to the duvet it just LOOKS like I ironed it. Very, very easy care. Note that the bottom side of the duvet does not have the same large print elements as the top. It is a same colors and pattern (medium, branching coral) but without the star-bursts. Looks very nice exposed at the top, if you like a turned-down look. As others have noted, covers for the large pillows are a heavier, very nice fabric. I also agree with others that the accent pillows seem superfluous. I dont use either on the bed. The bone white one is a nice accent in my window seat and the other, with the small, horizontal stripe is a great lumbar pillow for a chair in my living room. Even if you have no other uses for the accent pillows, this set is a great buy. Frankly, I havent seen this kind of quality anywhere. Although it is great in our 60 degree bedroom with a down comforter, I cant wait to use it in the summer, when Im sure its smooth, cottony feel will be especially appreciated
Like many of the other reviews I liked this so much more on the bed than I did in pictures or in the box. I almost sent it back until I felt how soft it was and then when I put it on the bed I loved the colors. It so comfortable and well made and the bed looks great. I would totally recommend this to a friend.
I've had this duvet for over four years, and I still love it. It has faded with regular washing, but has stayed soft and held up to the elements! No rips or tears. I have pets, so I need to wash it more regularly than others might. I may purchase another one since this one no longer looks as beautiful as it once did.
Purple Reef Duvet Cover set is just what I was hoping for, lovely & soft. My only issue is with the shams. The king patterned shams are not shams at all but really envelope enclosure pillowcases, the euro square shams are an off color from everything else & the one oblong pillow is cream & blue, matching nothing, Overall I'm very happy with the purchase as the duvet is so lovely & soft, very pretty colors.
The duvet arrived quickly. Fabric & sewing is good.. The color blends well with other colors.

I was unsure about the colors in this set when I initially ordered. I was pleasantly surprised when I received as the colors coordinate with my bedroom nicely. My walls are a purplish gray and this meets my needs. The fabric is very nice, with a slight sheen, I only wish that the duvet cover had ties to keep the comforter in place.
