This cover is taupe -- I don't think any of their other designs come in taupe. 

I just checked, and World Tree, Avenue of Trees, and Hokusai Wave all come in taupe as the second color.

Kathie-
Your cover is gorgeous!  I, too, am interested in the taupe color.  I am neutral person.  I ordered Celtic Knots in black, which hasn't been posted yet, either. 
Congrats on your beautiful Oberon!
  I love neutral colors too, and I find this taupe to be softly pleasant on the eyes.

Does anybody else think that ROH would look great in Taupe????

Kevin63 has been thinking long and hard about Hokusai wave in taupe....I'd love to actually see that in person.

I think of all the taupe choices, this is the one I'd be most interested in. I think Kevin needs to get it so he can post pictures for us ;D You know, take one for the team and all that....

That's the perfect way to describe it!  The taupe is beautiful!

I don't know which I would choose.  They are all too purty.

I meant pretty.

It looks like no one likes the Raven but me . . . I have loved ravens ever since one scared me right off my motorcycle one Sunday morning 35 yrs ago on Highway 1.

This cover is taupe -- I don't think any of their other designs come in taupe. 

I really love this cover.  I was concerned that the leather, being quite thick, would be hard and/or rough on the edges, but it's not at all.

Kathie, that color is really growing on me.  Quietly elegant. Great choice!

Yes, I have no regrets about my choice.  I hadn't noticed on Oberon's site that there are a couple of other taupe choices -- someone mentioned that the Wave comes in taupe; I think that would be beautiful.  I've always lived within a hour's drive from the ocean, and I love anything that reminds me how healing a day at the coast can be.

I didn't think I liked the taupe, but that raven is so beautiful!  It seems like taupe allows the detail of the leather working to come through more so than the other colors.

I love that everyone is sharing their pics.  I feel like I get to enjoy a piece of each one!  It makes me realize how beautiful Oberon's designs are that they have a hard time capturing that on their pictures at their website.  Their pictures really do not do their products justice.

OK, here goes. I'm going to try to post some pics of my new red Sun. In another post, I'll show the whole clan. I took these outside in full sun just now, so forgive any shadows. They look good on my iMac and at Photobucket, but who knows?


Hmmm, they're very small. How can I fix that?

;D What ever gave you that idea? It's a good thing Oberon didn't add red as a second color on any of their other covers!
