I bought this for my guest room after looking at MANY duvet covers. I couldn't pass up the price for a queen duvet and 2 shams. The duvet is very soft and looks great. The leaf pattern is metallic silver while the bands are a dark gray, blueish/green gray and white. I purchased a white bedskirt which goes well with the duvet. The shams that are included fit nicely. I have not washed it yet so don't know how well it holds up but one of the selling points for me is that it is machine washable. If you are going to add accent pillows the light gray is a little hard to match, depending on the light it has a blue or green tint.
