I purchased this rug for my livingroom to put over a bamboo floor (I used a carpet pad and would recommend one). It is very plush and I love it. When the room is well lite, the colors show well, but when the light is removed, it tends to mute all the colors.......luckly I have dimmers, so I can adjust the lighting easily. The colors are blue, sage, terracotta, and cream from my standpoint..........I am very pleased with my purchase. If you are looking for a beautiful dark rug, you will be happy with this one.
