This rug is a beautiful baby blue, and is much less expensive than other rugs I was considering for my son's nursery. The color is very true to the picture online, and the rug is nice and soft. I was very pleased when it first arrived. However, after just three months the rug is starting to look ragged. It gets an average amount of foot traffic and is vacuumed once a week, yet it is already starting to fray and look worn. Overall, it is a good buy for the price but if you plan on keeping it in your nursery for years to come, you might want to spend more money somewhere else.
