This rug has a nice, luxurious feel and look. It goes very well with my light tan walls and hardwood floors. The colors are muted, but beautiful. It actually even brightens up my otherwise drab, narrow hallway. The only downside, and it isn't a show stopper, is that it is thicker than I thought from the picture. Nice on the feet. But it could be a problem with the ver young and the older folks.
