The rug is lovely. The blue may be a bit more suble than as shown in the photograph. There was a previous review that put me off from ordering this rug for a long time. The rug is beige (as stated in the description) very similar to oatmeal. The blues, sage, and cream are suble and lovely.
I ordered this rug based on the images. I know color can vary a little from screen to screen, but this rug is BROWN. It's closer in color to my mid-tone wood floors than an ivory or cream. Buyer beware, this is a heavily tea-stained rug and not good for light and airy rooms.
