If you have actually seen the rug in person and those are truly the colors - I like it. If it is just a picture of what they call "vintage" rugs on overstock.com it may look very different when it arrives.

I just went through purchasing a rug on line and seriously considered what they refer to as "vintage" - what you see on your screen is not always what you get - particularly the vintage oriental look.

If the actual size is small and can easily be returned - try it.

I love it but at least on my screen, that's nothing close to emerald green, it's dark teal. But I would also reiterate what Mary said about the colors. I ordered an area rug for my new house and the colors are VERY different than they way they looked on the computer. I looked at it on 3 different computers during the time I was thinking about the purchase, so I know it's not just the color being off on one particular monitor. I still like it, but if I had my heart set on it looking more like the picture online, I would have been very disappointed.

Where did you get the picture of the pole-dancing sloth? I have a friend who loves sloths who needs that!

I love the idea of a black rug in this room. A bit unexpected and edgy. You have plenty of other vibrant colors. I think black would look rich.

Thank you KathrynAragon for the compliment! I think we are both seeing the vision I have with this rug. Edgy is what I'm going for!
Wry_Martini- There is a company called SharpShirters that designed both the shower curtain and both prints I picked out for my bathroom

As far as the true color of the rug goes, I hope its close to what is pictured. This is my first 'real' rug purchase. I'm just starting my niche for interior decorating and my grandmas house has a plethora of opportunities for re-design! I'll keep my fingers crossed and I will update this thread as I go! Thanks everyone for the opinions

I am not sure if this kind of rug is suitable for bathroom. Colors are great to... look at, though..
How big is your bathroom? Most people like to place thick, plushy rugs that would absorb moisture.
BTW: keep in mind that you will see literally everything (lint from towels, hair, fuzz etc.) on a very dark rug. It's very hard to keep dark rugs looking clean at all times.
