The colors arent exact to the picture. The 'tan' is more a lovely pastel canary yellow. Its not too gaudy though. I orders the queen size set, and was concerned it wouldnt fit because I have a thick mattress, but it fits perfectly with a bit extra room! The wholoe set is very soft, which I was not expecting for the price I paid. Overall, I'm beyond happy with my purchase and I would certainly recommend this product!
