The set looks exactly the way it does in the photo. It is SUPER soft and when you take it out of the dryer it is NOT wrinkled. I have two cats and a black labrador retriever whom all sleep on my bed, the color of the bedding does show the pet hair, but the set washed so nicely you wouldn't even know I had pets after I take it out of the dryer. The Buttons on the inside of the duvet is GENIUS!! This is the first duvet that I've had that doesn't shift the blanket from the inside. All of the beautiful colors give you so many decorating options and also options to pick for colors of your sheets. I highly recommend this set. The throw pillows that came with it give my bed that special touch. The pillows are made well and are so cute. I've had this set for a few years now and its still beautiful. I may even buy a backup set!
