Absolutely beautiful rug! The rust is a burnt orange color, with light, medium and dark brown accents. Also, small blue gray accents in the rug. (you could probably get away with using aqua accents in the room if you aren't using gray blue -- if you plan to pull a little blue into the decor). Perfect for the colors I needed. My husband and I keep saying, "Wow! What a beautiful rug!" Nothing bad to say about this one.
