I have conflicting feelings about this bedding. I got it almost three years ago as a wedding gift from my mother-in-law. It's gorgeous! I have gotten a zillion compliments on it. It's so beautiful that I don't want to part with it despite it being the least functional bedding I've ever owned. The buttons on the duvet have all popped off. At least once a month I'm hunting for one or two of them to sew them back on. The material is thin but somehow heavy. When hubs pulls bedding up to make the bed it puts a strain on the buttons (tears the material) and sends them flying under the dresser or bed. It's dry clean only. Ours has turned a different shade of gray at the top. I'm not sure why. I've taken it to the dry cleaners twice and they haven't been able to help. I can't stand to see the bed un-made because I think the color change is weird. However, I'm not ready to part with it.
I think this bedding would be better suited for a guest room. I don't think it was made to be everyday bedding.

Stunning and worth the price
This is the most beautiful set I've seen anywhere at any price. I've looked at a lot of sets. It is just stunning and we all deserve stunning!!!
I also went back and forth about this set because of the price and the material seemed fragile. But after I saw it in the store and spent months looking at others on-line and in stores, this was the one I still wanted, so got it on sale in white. I got two of the European shams. I don't like the standard shams so am going to purchase 3 more of the European one and have them made smaller.
The bed skirt looked too short so I got a two tiered one in the same material and they look like they were made to go together.
You do have to be careful but can wash it in cold water and dry it on low for about 20 minutes and air dry it. I know a pain but worth it or you can always dry clean it.
Hope this is helpful.
Oh, everything looks smashed when it comes out of the their shipping packages because they do get smashed. It saves shipping costs that way...right?

I finally decided to take the plunge...
I fell in love with the white Georgina collection the first time I saw it. I was a bit hesitant because of the price so I found myself going back to the website for a couple of months actually. I just knew this was the one and I have not regreted it a bit! I have read reviews on ironing it, putting it in the dryer etc and honestly all I did was put a thick down comforter inside it, spritzed it and turned the ceiling fan on high. Within the hour.. ABSOLUTELY GORGEOUS! I compltely love this and will have it for a long, long time to come! I do disagree with some who think the standard cases aren't worth the money, I think it completes the look! I have 2 euro shams, 2 standard shams and the duvet. I am considering the bedskirt now, originally I thought I did not want it as my bed sits on a platform. Just a bit hesitant as I have read the sizing differs! The white truly creates a relaxing atmosphere, which has inspired me to do a complete room makeover!
Not only is this duvet beautiful, but it is extremely comfortable. I dread leaving it in the morning!

I highly recommend this duvet set. I am very picky when it comes to my sheets and this met all of my expectations. The colors are soft and girly, without being over the top. Very unique and gives my room an extra kick. I do not recommend this for people with animals since the stitching is very sensitive.
This duvet cover and shams are absolutely stunning. They are so soft right out of the bag, as if you have had them for years. The detailing is intricate and very well made. The embroidery hasn't come loose with multiple washes and my dog jumping up on the bed. Hands down, best sheets ever!
On ne veut pas offenser les couettes en duvet chaudes et confortables, mais elles ne sont rien sans leurs housses. Our duvet cover sets in particular have a way of dressing up less-than-stellar comforters and tad-too-old throws. En passant des housses de couette à volants à celles recouvertes de broderies et d'imprimés floraux éclatés faits main, vous trouverez certainement une couette qui ajoutera un certain charme à la décoration existante de votre chambre à coucher. Au fil des saisons, il n'y a rien de plus agréable que de pouvoir rapidement changer sa housse de couette : quelques boutons ici et là et vous passerez de magnifiques velours et soies à des lins et des jerseys légers en un clin d'il. C'est ce qui fait la beauté des housses de couettes!
