As stated by another reviewer, the color shown is not the actual color. Grey it is not! I would say a more acurrate description is a dark taupe. So, where you see grey in the picture, it is dark taupe. I bought it knowing full well it was not grey. Even though it is not grey, I have to say, this is a beautiful rug. I wouldn't consider returning it, even if Overstock was a five minute drive from my house. I'm keeping this one!!!
