The orange looking color is really a nutmeg brown. The pink flowers are a dark mauve pink, which i just can't get my head around. The rug looks terrible in my room b/c the colors are all much more muted than what I was led to believe - that's what happens when you order off the internet! The quality isn't as high as I was expecting, either. I've ordered other rugs from this site and have been very happy with them. I'm considering whether or not I should return this particular one... I'm really not happy with it.
