Hi guys, well I got my taupe today too and I have to say (Daisy!!) I love the color, A LOT. I'm sooooo glad I was apprehensive and didn't get overly excited because I am truly pleased. I really adore the color, to me, it is a very elegant color. Love it. Especially w/the gold hardware. Here are pictures taken indoors and outdoors with no flash in any of the photos. Just love it. What a relief!
