I was expecting the pictured rug with dark tones of charcoal and flecks of brown and a lighter grey design inlay but the contrast between the actual colors (charcoal grey/brown overall color and the beige design) is striking. I am happy with the rug though and my 21 month old daughter is pleased as well since it's for her room. When she first wallked on it she giggled and said "New one! My toes, Mama!" because it was so soft. I chose this rug for her room because I wanted something design-wise that would grow with her but not be childish or locked into a child theme. The rug is classic and contemporary - transitional in design and will accommodate paint changes as well as theme changes when my daughter grows to make up her own mind about how her room should look.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? The design color is not a lighter grey but a light beige. Overall color and design color contrast greatly.
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Feels soft and looks expensive. I just bought it and may need to return to this review and add to it later regarding the wear and tear tolerance.
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? Not very accurate regarding color. I am pleased with the outcome anyway as it does work with in my toddler's light pink elegant room.
- Would you recommend this to a friend? Yes
