The colors in the online photo are pretty accurate. I purchased the rug for my formal diningroom that has a dark, cherry hardwood floor. The rug brightens up the room and adds warmth. Main colors include rust (brick red), cream and olive green. The rug looks great and is a great value for the price. Please note that for the price it doesn't look like the high-end wool persian rugs that cost $3,000 or more but is certainly a good substitute for those on a budget or for homes with children and pets that don't want to make a major investment in a rug. Rug arrived within one week.
