I almost sent the rug back but then found it worked ok in my dining room. Here's my take: decent rug for **** bucks. I wanted wool for my kids and not plastic. I found 8x10 wool rugs in ***** for ****, so I was a little bummed. I thought I'd write my take on the colors because even though I read the reviews, some colors still threw me off. There is a yellow ochre (mustard) color mixed with the beige on the outer border that I didn't like and that color is also in the main pattern. The colors are faded which I wanted, but they are more of a pastel look than a cool faded look. Also, the burgundy flowers are a dark outline filled with pink. There is pink throughout the main design along with a light green. Hope this helps. The rug colors maybe vary depending on where it is shipped from as well.
