I considered what other reviewers had to say about quality, color, size, etc. of the duvet cover and bought a larger size (king instead of queen). It's a perfect fit and I like it a lot. The blue is a bit smokey--exactly what I wanted.The only negative I could think of was that in ordering a king instead of a queen, I also got king-sized pillow shams. They don't work so well on a queen-sized bed so I'm having those "reconstructed". I highly recommend this duvet cover.
