I bought this rug for MBR, but it would look great in a living room, family room or anywhere! My room is painted BM Palladian Blue. This rug co-ordinates perfectly! The color is not a flat blue and it's not bright aqua. It's a blue w/ touches of light aqua/seafoam- very little green in the blue, but a touch. It was very hard for me to find this color described so I took a risk and it's PERFECT. I have had it for a few weeks and it does not shed at all! Couldn't be happier!
