Nope, it was not a mistake on the computer monitor; the "ivory" sheets I ordered were clearly a TAUPE color when I received them. Unfortunately, I waited until the last minute, until our only set of king size sheets was ripped in the washer, before I ordered these, and returning them would have meant more hassle than living with the wrong sheet color. I'm not a fan of these, to be clear. They're not heavy like I would expect higher TC sheets to be (I'm convinced that the quality of the thread is as important as the count of the thread, and I'm afraid these sheets were made with lower quality thread.). And while the pockets are indeed deep enough for our Euro-pillow mattress, the flat sheet barely hangs over on either side of the mattress. I'll keep these sheets, because I've already washed them and slept on them, but I'll likely replace them fairly soon and use them for backup.
