This duvet is really pretty - looks just like the photo. It is not the softest duvet, but not bad either. It really brightens up the room. I have washed and dried it, looks just as good - doesn't wrinkle or fade. I am very happy with my purchase.
I got one of these duvet covers, and when I saw how nice the fabric was, I got another duvet and cover! The 100% cotton is very soft, but substantial. Both sides are pretty, too. The one thing I dislike is that although the pillow sham has a nice recessed zipper for closure, the duvet cover has buttons which come off or undone easily, and too few of them, so that there are big gaps in the closure flap. I plan to either add more buttons or sew on a zipper, if I can find one long enough. It was hard to find a duvet cover with lots of flowers and colors at a price I was willing to pay, and I'm still glad I found this one!
This is really the only way to shop- I did my legwork and looked for what I wanted as my duvet cover- shopped for at least 8-10 months in all the stores. I do that for almost everything I buy that is important to me. I have to know the range of prices, the looks I like, and then I will buy it. I think we all do that. Could not find what I wanted until I went into OverStock.com. I got this brand name, queen duvet cover- very colorful but tasteful for a great price. I got it sooner then expected and it was reflective of the ad online. Quality -great, Color-great and exactly as advertised.
Just bought this for our guest room/ my daughter's future bedroom. It looks just as pictured, although the colors are a little brighter than in this picture. It looks beautiful against our white bed frame and light blue walls. Very pretty and not too "little girl" looking. I washed it beore using and it washed and dried with out any problems. It's not "squishy" soft but it certainly isn't hard either.
I love this duvet cover. The colors are true to the image on the website. This set has brightened up my bedroom just as I had hoped it would. It's a bit of a modern twist on a French country style, which has added some fun to my decor.
