This set is understated and beautiful. It is very neutral, and you could go in any direction as far as decorating. While the edge of the duvet is gray, the body of the duvet is white-beige. The one pillow is gray and one is brownish/ taupeish. So, it fits any color scheme you use. I thought that the zebra pattern could be too wild, but actually it is very neutral and is woven into the jaquard. The pillows give the set a finished look.
