I bought this set to go on my ivory duvet cover in my bedroom and I also have sage sheets. It goes well with my set, though it is labeled ecru on the actual package. It might be a tad darker than the ivory, but it still looks great. The pillow covers can come off to be cleaned. The throw blanket is woven in a way that if you have cats, they can pull out the thread. That has happened already on mine however, that would not deter me from buying it again as that is typical with woven blankets. It is also very soft.
