It's funny because I guess Emma3 must have bought their "water blue" duvet cover almost the same time I bought mine. I wish I could have seen their review before I bought mine. The color is not blue at all. I was shocked at how different it looks online. Like the previous review, this is a teal color. It's closer to the color green than it is blue however, the fabric is absolutely wonderful. It is so soft and comfy that I immediately wanted to lay down on it once I got it on. I ordered the king size duvet and it came with king size shams. I probably didn't read the full description and didn't realize they would be king shams so now I need to go buy king size pillows but that's not too bad. I love the feel of this duvet and the pattern is nice too. Also, I didn't realize the other side of the duvet was striped. That was kinda strange, but not a really bad thing. Like I said, the color is VERY off so if you are trying to match this to a blue in your room, it's not going to match. I probably would have gotten a different color if I had known but then I am afraid the other colors will be too far off also. This duvet set is a great deal and it's so comfortable. I would definitely recommend it if you are not worried about color matching.
