The colors in the duvet look just like the ones in the picture. The design is soft and feminine, but not overly so--the stipes on the reverse side give a nice contrast as does the rich plum color. Material feels nice, it looks like it will hold up well in the wash. I'm very please with my purchase.
When I received it, the package read "King/California King", which made me nervous it would be too large/long for my king sized comforter. Well, the good news is, it wasn't ... the bad news is, it was actually too small for my king sized comforter. Oh, I was able to get it in okay, and I'm using it, but I was hoping for a better fit. But, for the price, I'll live with it. The print is beautiful, the colors are perfect for my application. The material is very thin, but very soft. The buttons are going to come off after a few washings, but I can sew.
Great value! I have a very expensive and heavy duvet cover already, but with 4 dogs, I ordered this to have an inexpensive cover in hopes of having something light weight enough so I could easily wash. I was very surprised when it arrived. While it is not "heavy weight", I expected that, but the colors are absolutely beautiful. It fit perfectly on the thick king down comforter, and was silky soft. I haven't laundered yet, but it is very well put together so I don't expect any problems with it. The coloring on the photo doesn't do it justice. The greens on the striped side go perfectly with my room decor, and the flowered side is a lot more vivid than shown too. If you're looking for something that is lightweight, or for a spare room, this is perfect!
The duvet we actually received did not look like the design pictured. The one we got was very poorly made. The material was super thin and slippery. The duvet would not stay in place. My daughter would wake all knotted up in the duvet with no down comforter on her. We would not recommend this item!
