I would like to say upfront that I cannot review the quality of this particular duvet. I bought it for my daughter's room as an advanced b-day present. The color is called "light blue" which implies a "pale blue". I bought it hoping it was the color in the picture more of an "aqua blue" - similar to turqiouse jewelry. IT WAS EXACTLY LIKE THE PICTURE. It is perfect for my needs. I will say that I have bought several duvet covers in the same price range on OverStock before, and I have never been disappointed. In fact I typically buy my duvets from Overstock because they are good quality (i machine wash my bedding every weekend) and inexpensive enough to change often for a new look.
