I hesitated ordering this rug at first - because sometimes the actual colors of a specific do not translate well through the internet or websites. I did know that I could return it to Overstock.com if there was a problem. I ordered this rug in the 9'6" x 13'6" size for our master bedroom. I could not be more thrilled with my purchase! Even my husband was impressed with the composition - wool, the size - full, true size, and the quality - thick and very well made. The colors are actually ivory for the background, a light sage border with brown and gold accents in the design. It is perfect! I loved that there is NO FRINGE. You will not be disappointed in your selection of this rug! We have bought numerous rugs - antique, new, etc. and this rug's quality surpasses a lot of our previous rug purchases at a definitely more reasonable price. I will definitely check Overstock.com for any future rug purchases.
