When I first saw this in a search for a duvet I thought it was too good to be true. I was looking for a duvet cover that would match my purple and gold theme that I have in my bedroom and thought this was a perfect match. As soon as I opened the package, I noticed that the base color was not "gold" or even close to that color shade. It was white. I carefully opened the package to see the sham and it had a weird green sheen to it. I hated it. I looked NOTHING like the picture. I am truly disappointed because I was really looking forward to completing my bedroom with this duvet cover. Someone else may like it if they want PURPLE AND WHITE.
