I agree with other reviews that the colors in the rug are more of a Brown, very very very light green, cream and more of a rust to burnt orange, but definitely not a red. The picture is true to actual. The light light green looks like the cream, you really have to look hard to tell a difference. But those were the colors I wanted, so it is perfect. I received the rug in a very timely manner and it was wrapped in 2 layers of plastic to protect it.
