I was nervous to buy this because there were no reviews (except the lady who thinks it is blue???). I like the feel of sateen and this is nice and soft. Good fit for my duvet. Classic pattern. This is not my typical style, but it is perfect for the guest bedroom that I did not want to be too girlie or too masculine. A nice balance. A little more gray than I expected - I was hoping for more tan - but it does say "taupe." So, that was my own mistake. Overall, very happy with this purchase.
