The color of stripes is lighter than the part in between stripes. The stripes are more in silver color. In between the stripes, it is grey in color. Based on the photo, I expect the overall is silver color; however, the description does say it is grey. Quality is nice. I would keep it.
This rug's muted look was more stripes than an inter-mixed look. Very little grey - far more black. The quality was fine, good feel, and heavy. I returned the rug and exchanged it for the Moroccan Cambridge purple / ivory rug which is far more beautiful [in my opinion]. Probably shouldn't have only given this only 3 stars, because the quality was good, and perhaps others will like the "stripe" look and severity of the black and ivory, but it didn't work for me.
