I love this duvet cover set. The one hesitation I had in the beginning was in the softness department. When I first got it, it wasn't as soft as I thought it would be. However after washing it, it was a lot softer and I have no complaints. I would recommend washing it inside out so as to keep the flower pattern on there. As stated in other reviews, the flower pattern is pressed on top, not woven in, so wash delicately. To brighten/warm it up, I have some warm yellowish gold tone sheets with two turquoise pillows and one golden yellow pillow. It's modern, warm, and beautiful. I wish I could post a picture on here, because I took a bunch. Overstock should add that option on reviews! :) Overall, I love the duvet cover set. It's not the greatest quality in the world, but it really is great for the price and for the look. Again, once you wash it it will be a lot softer than when you first receive it.
