Every manufacturer has their own color name so really you can’t get hung up on those. Find the color you want and stick with the color and don’t pay attention to the name. As an example, one manufacturer will have a certain color they call wine which is completely different from someone else’s wine but will be the same shade as another company’s burgundy, apple, whatever. At the same time, there are actually women who have breakdowns because several different wines or burgundies (or whatever color) are not the same shade and are so focused on the name that nothing else registers.

Go to a local hardware store to browse the paint chips if you don’t have an actual dress swatch from the company. Grab several paint chips in colors you like that go with it and mix and match them at home in the natural light.

With the “duckling” color, I would go with cream flowers and other decorations.

i agree that the names of the colors are just a distraction lol.. you should request a swatch of that color and that fabric and then play around with other colors that match, i agree that it would go with cream and could also go with yellow..  Using the paint chip idea suggested by Selene221 will definitely make it easier to visualize other colors

My cousin had what sounds like a very similar color and had silver and white as accent colors.
