The colors in this rug are all I could ask for. My walls are plain (new house), and this is my anchor point to go wild! I haven't really subjected it to rough wear. It is being used as a bedside rug over hardwood floors, so no one's toes get cold while searching for slippers. I recommend, as with any rug, getting non-skid pad or backing strips if using it on a hard surface. The texture is great underfoot. Had it been larger, I would have gotten one for the living room. A good product at a reasonable price.
