I purchased this rug for my living room. I was looking for a bright rug and thought this would do the job; however, once I received it, I realized it was a tad too bright for my taste. Rather than deal with the returning it I moved it to my guest bedroom and it works wonderfully there. The colors are bright and the rug has a bit of a sheen to it. I feel the colors in person match the picture. It's a great indoor/outdoor rug at a reasonable price. My advice is, if purchased for indoor use place in a bedroom.
