I wanted the duvet cover to splash the watery blue color - and the color is what I wanted! Just as another review stated, the makesmanship is not tops (but it's not horrible! - you get what you pay for). As stated in another review, do not take this product with a hope of green - it is truly a sea like teal (personally, its what I wanted for my 70's house with some remaining tile in a complimentary shade!) The only other mention I would share with other woud-be purchasers is that the fabric is a wanna-be silk taffeta - obviously not quality, but definitely not offensive (not the cheesy kind of shiny or satin). It works for the price!
