I would recommend this rug with some reservations. The colors are much stronger and the pattern more distinct than shown in the picture, so it's a little "busy". The base color is a blueish green and the leaf pattern is a grey-beige. There are cream color flecks throughout the rug. The background is a loop construction and the overall effect is not as refined as I had anticipated, but should stand up well to 2 big black dogs. The description color says "milk pail green" while the label on the rug says "leaf swamp", so I'm not entirely sure I got the right rug. But (maybe by accident) it seems to blend with the room even if the pattern is distracting. 4 star quality, 2-3 star for color depiction.
