I purchased this bed set for our guest bedroom and it looks really great. As was said in other reviews, the actual main color in not yellow, but a light ivory/off-white color. I would have really loved it if it was yellow, but that's just my preference. The dark purple color is a grape/wine shade with the lavender looking very much like the picture. The set is pretty but not to "froo-froo" frilly feeling, and just right for any bedroom. Great product and great price for it! Of course, Overstock did an excellent job sending it quickly as well.
