i like the design of duvet cover it self but i think it's too much to put the pillow shams with same print as well so i replaced it with solid white pillow shams. the fabric is okay for the thread count but i hope it gets softer after couple of washes. it you first buy it and do a laundry, you'll notice the tiny cotton balls inside the duvet cover. at least mine was like that so i flipped it inside out and used fabric dust removing tape to remove it. so far i like it.
