I was upset when I received the duvet cover as the pictures show that it is the same fabric on both top and bottom. Never does it show the striped inside as anything but a sheet. The pillows that are sent with this cover are awful. The square dark purple pillows are so dark they are almost black and depressing. It would have been nice to have the smallest pillows a lilac color to bring out the light shades of the duvet. To include a nearly black pillow and the other of gold lame' is awful. Whoever thought one gold pillow would look good with that set. It needed two of the same color and light. I tried to exchange them but was told it wasn't possible. It is a waste to send those two small pillows with this set as they clash with it.
When you bring it in a moderate to dim lighting it looks BROWN and CREAM so if your a shades wide Martha Stewart kinda home keeper then avoid if your looking for a purple glow. Can't really say much more then the package is very colorful and the pillows are sparkling but since it didn't please the eye so back it goes.
