This rug is exactly as pictured, center is pale yellow/celadon with nice sages, teal, rose and chestnut brown accents, and olive border. Mine is actually 7'10" x 10'10", not 8' x 10', but still works well in my family room. I wanted a rug that the kids and dog can play on and I think this is a great deal for the money. I put a rug pad from Overstock under it, and it is softer and thicker than any carpet, feels great underfoot. All wool rugs shed a bit, and this one is shedding some, not excessively.
