By no stretch of the imagination is this rug blue. It is much closer to a sage green. The picture makes it appear slate-y blue. Be warned. I didn't read the previous review that mentioned this, and only looked at the high ratings. That's why I'm giving it a low grade to draw attention. If you like an inexpensive green rug, this is a nice rug for the money.
I purchased two rugs at the same time so I could have a choice. I loved them both so neither went back. The value is excellent! This rug seems much more expensive than it is. The colors are muted and soft. I have it in the entry of my front door. We live at the beach and have dogs. This rug holds up great. Protects my hardwood floors and hides the foot dirt. I love it!
