I used this rug for my young son's bedroom. I will say that the colors are accurately pictured: the center part is more of a steel gray with light blue striations while the border is more of a true light blue with a touch of light gray striations. Neither is a real solid color so don't expect that. I've owned a number of wool rugs of this type - they all pill! That is normal. Sometimes it goes on for months. You have to vacumn often - eventually, it will stop. This is a lovely rug - especially in the room where I am using it where it will be picking up a number of other blues - in his quilt, ceiling, and wall decor and if you're not going for a matchy-matchy look. If you are looking for a pure, baby blue rug, say for a nursery, this may not be the rug for you.
