I bought this rug for my 2 year old son's bedroom thinking it would go with anything I choose to do in the future. It is a beautiful rug with every color under the rainbow. (Navy, orange, green, light blue, brown, tan, white, etc.) However it does have too much pink and lavender to make into a boy's room. It is a soft high quality rug and that will shed in the beginning as ALL wool rugs do. I see this rug as being perfect in a gender neutral playroom. I am keeping it, but I wish it had more blues and red.
