The colors are slightly different than it appears. The checkered border is a dark brown and yellow. My walls have a yellow tint, so it turned out okay, but would prefer if the checkered border was ivory and brown like the picture. Even with the yellow, it is a pretty rug. Do not anticipate that the main background color is ivory...it is tan. I also purchased the 8' Round rug. The checkered border on that one is a lighter brown and a darker yellow. The rugs are side by side and even though they don't match exactly, the colors are so similar that you don't even notice it. The rugs are super thick. Only issue (and only a slight issue) is that they do shed a little. Not enough to warrant not buying the rug. All in all, I'm very pleased.
