I was looking for a turquoise rug to go with my southwestern décor. This rug is a nice blue-turquoise. However, there is quite a bit of white mixed in with it. There was none in the picture. The pattern really shows from a slight distance and from certain angles but not so much up close. I ordered one of the runners to go with it and 1/2 the rug is woven like the large rug with some white but the other half is all turquoise, very rich and deep. I wish the entire large rug looked like the half that is all dark turq. I am keeping both rugs as there is not much to choose from in turquoise. Overall, it looks nice in my living room.
