Hmm...(on the Champagne)
Took the plunge and ordered the Champagne color. While it's great that you get the insert with this set and it's truly a lovely scroll pattern, I was not impressed with the shade of champagne used here. On the still photos showing the champagne set on the bed, it looks more like a taupey champagne. It is not that shade in person. It has a peachy undertone which I don't care for. It cheapens it somehow. Had it been a taupe shade (like in the still photos), it would have looked much more expensive, in my little humble opinion. I have several of her sheet sets in the vintage damask pattern (LOVE those sheets), one being the taupe color, called champagne and that's the shade I had hoped for in this duvet set. Initially, I was so excited to have received it, that I did away with the box and everything. Wish I had kept it because I would've definitely returned this duvet set in this color. But I appreciate the fact that you can turn it over to the other side for a lighter look. And actually with the champagne color, it looks a little less "peachy" on the lighter side. Maybe that is the reason the pillows in the video never gets turned around to the "right" side, the cameras may have picked up too much of the peachy undertone in the champagne...Who knows. Also, I find that the material tends to snag easily which concerns me a little. Hopefully it will hold up.
Other than that, it's a lovely set, elegant and timeless looking. If I ever decided on the Ashes of Roses color, I would only use the lighter side. I like the way it looks on camera (not too much "pink").
