So I added this rug to my cart and watched it sell out twice over four months before I took the plunge and purchased it. I have a house built in the 1930s that was furnished with very traditional leather furnther from my previous family room in the suburbs. The room already has a lot of character with wood floors, plaster walls and the original restored fireplace and I wanted to create a living room that is eclectic, non-traditional, colorful, warm and inviting.When I unrolled the rug, I knew this was it! It is the first thing people notice when they walk into the room and I have decorated the room around the color pallette of this rug. I have a mustard couch, wood and leather side chairs, red sari curtains and accents that pull all of the color together. The rug helped me create a space that I love to spend time in whether I'm reading a book or entertaining friends. As for the colors, the red on the end with black and gold is very deep and dark. The "reddish" in the middle sections is lighter, almost salmon, but not ugly, pink salmon. I decorated as if it is all red, and the room looks perfect! Highly, highly recommend!
