The colors were as pictured. That's the only thing I don't dislike about this rug. The size is slightly smaller than listed, it's very thin, the weave feels greasy to the touch, and the pattern is not at all visible/discernible; it's just a bunch of colored dots. Maybe that's because I got the small size; I don't know. It feels and looks like junk and I'm not even going to use it.
