Beautiful looking rug. The colors are depicted well online: light grey floral pattern with medium to dark grey background. Neither shade of grey is blueish; both are a regular silvery-grey. It sheds A LOT but apparently this is normal for new wool rugs and should reduce overtime. We have only had it a few weeks. The first rug we ordered (same style/size rug) was cut unevenly but overstock.com provided great customer service and immediately sent us a replacement rug that we received a couple days later.
