The colors on the duvet are not as saturated and rich as I would have preferred .the colors do not pop as Id have liked. So with my beige/dark sand colored walls, the fabric looks a bit faded .like one has put it through a washing machine a few times and it lost some color. So I recommend 1. When selecting this color option (GOLD), keep in mind the colors in your room do you already have a lot of beiges/tans/golds going on? 2. use the duvet over rich colored sheets and pillow cases/shams to balance out the washed out look .just pick one of the other colors from the duvet and get it in a rich tone. Other than that, I do like the design, I like that it is 100% cotton, the size fits my comforter well and I like the hidden button closures.
