A common thing I read in reviews about any bedding is that the colors don't match the picture. I would say this is true in this case, but I was expecting bright pinks and purples, but these are rich... this really wasn't a problem for me because I think it's beauitful as it is. It is SO soft and comfy, and the rich purple is absolutely gorgeous. It is a very regal purple. Even my husband commented that it is a great color of purple. I definitely should've bought the bigger 24 piece set that comes with window dressings! That is probably my only regret. This bedding is really nice, espeically for the price, and it is beautiful.
