The colors are not true to colors shown in pictures. I wish they had been because the colors in the picture are the colors I needed for my newly painted bedroom. The background looks like a light taupe but it is actually a yellowish color and the mauve pink flower is actually a reddish color. Unfortunately I had to return the bedspread and the pillows I ordered to go with it. Returning these items was not a problem. Overstock is always good about wanting you to be happy with their products and they make returns very easy.
I purchased the full size set as a birthday gift for my mother. The pattern is beautiful and is reversible which is a big plus. The fabric and the construction are high quality. Its also rather heavy. At 85 years of age, Mom gets a workout when she makes the bed each morning. Mom has a full size bed which makes it difficult to find a comforter that really fits. Most come in fulll/queen size. The sizing of this set is the only drawback. It, too, is oversized for a full size bed that does not have a pillow top. Mom is a tough customer. I was afraid she'd want me to send it back, but she loves it so much she wouldn't hear of it. Instead she hand sewed a seam around the bed skirt to keep if from dragging on the floor and now she's happy. That's the one thing that stopped me from rating this excellent.
