The rug is well made, true to color in the picture, and very comfortable to walk on or sit on. the blue/grey is very mellow but quite clear. I also bought the larger size, 7'10" x 10'10". That one was more faded or distressed. So the blue/grey is less distinct with the effect being that the rug gives a lighter look. Nonetheless, I am very satisfied with both. And with customer service who I called to cancel a return.
This rug is one of the prettiest I've bought. Have all different quality of rugs in my home. This one looks fabulous on the wood floors. You can spend many thousands of dollars on a rug and not necessarily get the look and feel you want. This rug is so warm and muted it looks a lot more expensive than it was.
The rug is a muted color somewhere between dusty blue/gray and muted gray, depending on the light in the room. There are subtle rust color tones as well. It is a nice compliment on my dark hardwood floors. It doesn't over power the room. The quality is very good, it is very nice to walk on, no shedding. Very good buy for the price, considering other rugs I saw in stores that cost way more.
