The description does say "light green," but I thought from the picture that this rug would be more sagey - it's actually a very light sea foam green. The yellow accents are also not so gold as pictured. The rug is very soft and seems to be well made. It arrived at my home in two days. We're having a hard time returning it , though, because we had to destroy the original packaging to get into it, and it's so big that we're going to have to lug it to a UPS store to get it repackaged and sent. We got the 9'6" x 13'6" rug. Plus, a huge chunk is being deducted from our refund for the return shipping labels. I wouldn't order a rug from here again unless I was sure of the color through other reviews.
