I held off on ordering this rug because I was afraid it would be too busy against another rug in an adjoining room. While the colors aren't exactly muted, they don't shout at you either, so it's working out well. I was delighted to see that the overall tone is more of a camel color than yellow/gold. Because the red is a deep, rusty cranberry it blends with many shades of red. It's shedding just a little, but I expect it to quit soon. Overstock's shipping time and fees are excellent. Shipping took a little longer for me, since the rug came from the East Coast and I'm far NW. Not a problem for me.
