Unike other reviewers I found the colors exact to the online pictures. The cover is really nice with a duvet in it or not. All the colors compliment each other. The tone of the sage green and brown look good with about any color sheets you choose. There would be one thing I would change, since the cover is a silky material it will slip easily off the bed during the night. They should have put a cotton material on the back so it would not slip as much.
