Unlike the other reviews, I bought this for my living room (not a child's playroom), and the colors are just what I wanted--bright and full of life. It allowed for a nice modern aesthetic in my living room, but keep in mind, this rug is not for the faint of heart, it is very loud. I absolutely love my rug, my only complaint is that if any of the furniture on the rug slightly moves, it buckles, so it's very hard to keep flat and in the same position. I would say it's maybe because of the surface it's on, but it's on carpet, so no excuses haha. But overall that is a very minor problem to maintain for such a lovely "centerpiece" to any room.
