I bought this rug for my daughter's toddler room. The rug is darker than what appears on my monitor. The background is light tan or beige, not the off- white color in the photo. Also the design is in "fall" colors not "springtime" colors. The rug does not go with the cheerful fabrics I have purchased for the room. Both rugs I bought from overstock were darker than shown in the picture. I haven't had that problem with other merchandise.
