This is beautiful, and perfect in my room. The color in the pillows and the spread are different shades shade of yellow. The yellow in the spread is a bit more gold ompared to the pillows. It works in my room which is a very bright yellow and is a perfect match for the color on my walls....It would have been a better spread it they would have used permapress material. With that said I love the item, It is very soft looking and work perfect for me ...I could not have found anything that works as well as this set. I am so happy I took the chance with the other reviews that speak about the different shades of yellow, it is not that different ..
