This is a lovely duvet cover with very soft crushed velvet, however the colors are completely off. The taupe is a true steel grey about 2 shades darker than stainless steel and I also bought the burgundy which would best be described as "raisin" as it is a brownish/reddish almost purple tone. I did get a pic of the burgundy, it's shown on the left, the other red tones are a true burgundy(upper right) and wine (lower right.) Unfortunately I had to return both as they clashed with my existing colors.
It's a shame as they were quite nice otherwise.
We bought our daughter the "olive" duvet for a room remodel, and it's perfect. I would describe the color as more of a dark teal. It's sturdy, thick and very well made. We have not washed it yet, but I would imagine it will hold up well. I'm VERY happy with this purchase, and so is our daughter.
