Duvet cover

While in NYC visiting my younger daughter I couldnt resist buying this wonderful embroidered taffeta. We shopped on Jamaica avenue in Queens - what a selection, and the prices were wonderful.

 I think it matches the curtains so well, and the green will brighten it up a bit.  I intend to make a bedskirt with the green - lightly gathered rather than pleats.  The duvet cover will hang down about halfway down the side.
Here is a mtore detailed look at the fabrics....

Now the question - do I have a seam up the middle and make
1. the entire duvet out of the burgundy, maybe
2. with a green outline, or have a
3. stripe of the green going down the middle? 
I would really appreciate your comments and suggestions.

as you can see from the first photo - we can see out to the garden, and I have those lovely sheers with a foresty feel - I want the room to look as though you are already in the garden, so think this fabric suits that idea perfectly. What do you think?

It looks really great!
I think it would look nice if you cut the red into four pieces, and then had green in between them, and around the edges of the duvet.

I like that idea Mary, but wonder if I should have the green all the way around the edge, since it will be resting up against the skirt anyway which is green.

Yes, I think that a green outline will turn out great. Mary's idea will make the burgundy stand out more and will be quite lovely too. Hmmm....I miss sewing...
