"Beautiful Blues"

Art on my wood floor! But I have it placed in a non travel area so as not to dirty it.

"Colorful and beautifully made"

This rug is true to the colors in the pictures and is perfect for my living room - just as I had hoped. Its colorful and eyecatching without taking over the room altogether. A perfect centerpiece.
