This duvet set looks great on my bed! I have to agree with the other posters saying that the background color does look a bit creamier in the photo. I think that might be because of the finishing on the picture. In reality, it is black on silver. So please save yourself a return and make sure you want black and silver. With that being said, it really is beautiful on the bed. For the price, the top side is not the softest fabric directly on your skin. On the whole, I am quite pleased with the value for the money. I would recommend this item if you're looking for these colors at a low price.
