Blue/grey and ivory is an accurate description of the color. It is thick and feels comfy under your feet. This rug is great, but every time I vacuum it completely fills my canister. I have also found the runners to be impossible to affix it to my laminate and my tile flooring with the conventional double sided rug tapes, however they are so substantial that they don't move/slide around too much.
Received my rug faster than expected. I ordered this for my 2 month old son's room and was looking for a more natural fiber since we will be playing on the floor. The rug was true to its description. It is true to color, but appears more grey than blue. It is perfect as a neutral as his walls are turquoise. The pile is nice and thick and the rug is plush under foot. Just be careful that the pile will allow the door to close. Overall, great rug.
This is a beautiful plush rug, but it sheds like crazy, even after 5 months. The color is NOT light grey. it is much more of a gray blue which would normally be fine; however our master bedroom is all grey and white so it does look out of place. we are still pleased with the quality, its very comfortable.
