I was so excited about receiving this item because I looked all over the web trying to find the right item. I'm sprucing up my living room and needed some new pillows. The picture definitely doesn't give a true representation of the product. There's a disclaimer that states that colors may vary depending on your computer. I get that. Having said that though, it would have been nice if the exact colors in the throw were added in the description of the product so there would be no confusion. While this is a nice set for the price, the actual pillows did not look as vibrant as on screen. I need the pillows to pop with color, and this doesn't do it. They look dull. They also have actual strips of ribbon on the pillow which you can't see from the picture. The actual colors in the throw are celery green, dusty rose, ivory and dark olive. The throw is a soft material. There's no grey in the pillow. It's ivory, wine, light burgundy, and mauve. My color scheme is pink, bright burgundy and blue, which I thought was perfect given what I saw on my screen.
