This is a high quality, thick pile rug. The background color is fairly close to what is pictured with maybe a slightly greener tint. It is basically neutral, but because my house has a lot of variants of green colors, that little bit of green tint was just enough to make it not match. So I sadly have to return it. The light blue color in the peacock feather is a robin's egg blue, the green is a fairly primary dark green. They stand out against the background, which could be good but also could be a challenge. It would be tricky to match this rug with other than a neutral wall color because of that. But if you can do it (or get the rug and then decide on a wall color) it is a nice rug! What is quite aggravating is that the cost to return it is $**! Had I known that when I ordered, I never would have taken the chance of ordering a rug like this without having the chance to have seen it first. I wish Overstock would give you the opportunity to better understand returning shipping implications- makes me not want to take a chance an order again.
