First off, the overall rug color is not close to the image on the site, so don't expect it to match. It's more of a dingy, latte brown with with ochre and tan highlighting. Depending on your lighting (flourescent, natural, incandescent) you may see a slight hint of blue in the inner border. The reds are deep and are fairly accurate though, the one redeeming quality of the rug. Secondly, this rug sheds worse than a dog. You will be constantly picking up balls of wool.
