Per the picture and description online, I expected this rug would feature a dark ivory to beige background with accents of red and dark blue. When the rug arrived and I unrolled it in my garage I thought I had made a huge mistake - the background of the rug appeared a very light green and the red appeared pink. Fortunately, on the floor in the house, the pink appears more red and the light green background is very muted against my furniture. The pattern of the rug is absolutely gorgeous and just as pictured on the website. Be aware though that the background color of this rug is not ivory or beige, but more of a very light green.
