I have been looking for a nice, soft pink duvet for a long time and have not been able to find one. I ordered this item in Rose and it was perfect. (Not actually rose/mauve colored - it is light pink. I think the color descriptions are strange.) I followed the advice of one of the reviewers who said the queen size was a bit too small, and I ordered a king size for my queen bed. It fits fine. I love the fabric - cottony and soft. Not really shiny at all. I am very satisfied with it.
