After debating for some time, we decided to go with this turquoise , not blue rug. The colors are much more subtle, but work well together. My computer screen showed a slight sheen, but in reality it is very muted.The burgundy , gold and light green are not bold. The pattern is beautiful , and I have received many compliments on this rug. After 5 months the rug still looks new, considering we have a toddler and 3 cats who love to claw at everything. So I would definitely gave it 10+ for durability.
