OK, enough with the complicated color descriptions. I had the hardest time figuring out what the color of this rug is with the product description and everyone's comments. I'd say it's chartreuse. Really though, it's going to depend on your lighting and paint in the room. Both will influence the shade and could bring out good and/or not so good attributes in the rug's color. I wanted it to be olive green, but it isn't and it looked absolutely terrible in my living room because I have terra cotta walls. Can you see it? Terra cotta walls and a chartreuse rug? Good night, it was my worst decorating nightmare. Now, my comments on color have nothing to do with the quality of the area rug. It is well-made, well-designed and simply beautiful. I moved it to my office (I am an editor and writer who works full-time from home), and it is absolutely perfect. I have a white desk, a beautiful wood mantel with an electric fireplace, an olive green velvet arm chair and two peacock Tiffany lamps. I can't say it enough, the room is stunning and that's due in large part because of the area rug. (P.S. I highly recommend checking out the peacock Tiffany table lamp on Overstock's website ... it's unusual and SPECTACULAR. I would especially look it up and consider it, if you are thinking about buying a peacock feather area rug. ;) I used a different peacock area rug from Overstock in my living room, it's beige with huge olive green peacock feathers on it, and it's gorgeous. I didn't even have to repaint, the terra cotta walls look fantastic with the mostly beige rug and it all pulls together well with my lovely curtains. One thing about the chartreuse rug: Have a good vacuum. There's a page you'll receive with the rug and it talks about shedding and how it is normal for a new wool rug. Trust me, this baby sheds. It isn't terrible, but I do need to vacuum a bit more. This is especially important with more people in the house because the more the rug is used/walked on, the more shedding there is. But it is beautiful, so I don't mind pulling out my vacuum a little more often.
