Even though the color description wasn't accurate, this rug is so plush and beautiful. The color is (to me) mostly a mint green with the border that is a yellow-green--like dying grass. The mint green background color fades in to different shades as you look at it. No burgundy accents; to me they are terracotta. There is purple, but you really have to stare to notice it. I really love this rug, but be prepared to be a little surprised by the color.
