This is a brilliant emerald green, so if you are looking for a more of an aqua blue, don't bother. That being said, this is a truly beautiful rug if the color suites. It is te emerald green of the sea, and I will make it fit a room later on. It is nice and thick. It will look fabulous with white furniture or to add color to a white room so I will certainly keep it. I only gave it three stars because of the color not being what it appears online. It feels wonderful to the feet, and I shake it out insead of vacuum, although I only just received it, I have bath rugs that are of the same material, and wash those. So from Charlotte in Nashville, Enjoy!
