The rug is a darker turquoise color (not a pale sky blue as pictured). The center pattern only contains about 9 squares and the leaves around the border are solid brown in color rather than blue outlined in brown as pictured. Therefore, the rug contains much more brown than pictured. That combined with the darker turquoise color makes the rug look drab. In addition, the edges of the rug I received were frayed, so I plan on returning the rug.
