The Heritage Blue in my opinion, is a color between gray-blue & teal blue. It is the perfect compliment to our Great Room's very traditional Federal style. The other colors in the rug pick up colors in our window treatment, accessories & furniture. The brown trim anchors the stain of the partial wainscot walls & chair railings to the floor. This rug is thick and lush as advertised & even the backing of the rug is of extremely high quality. It is simply stunning! The carpet pad we ordered with it from Overstock, is of the highest quality & does work as advertised: Over Carpet, hardwood, tile etc. Our rug is placed over off-white 100% Wool Berber carpeting & the rug is not moving anywhere! I was anxious about the color when ordering it--as blues are difficult to marry together--But the rug color is very much the SAME COLOR as seen on my computer screen. Thank you Overstock--another super deal!
