This rug was the perfect size for my daughter's playroom. It looks great. The background is slightly more "blue" than what it appears on my screen - but I have no complaints about the color - just want others to be prepared. It is also relatively soft - I was concerned it would be a rough texture but it's perfect for little ones to play on. It's great rug and my only complaint is that I'm still vaccuuming the little "fibers" that come off new rugs and it's been about 3 weeks. This has been my experience though with any new rug.
