Lil Mo Bees Knees Honeycomb The color in the octogon was a bright yellow, rather than the light tan that I expected. The rug is good quality. Vicki I chose this rug for our first baby's nursery. I was hesitant about the color at first because I worried it wouldn't be quite yellow enough, but in person the colors are a bit brighter and more vibrant than they appear in most of the internet images. I would call the background gold, but the honeycomb shapes are more yellow. And look closely - the bees' wings are blue! It goes perfectly with our color scheme, so that was a bonus. It's very cute and stylish, and very very soft under foot. It sheds a little, but I expect a couple of sweeps with a vacuum will take care of that. This is my second Momeni rug purchase, and I love both! I highly recommend, especially if you can get it at the great Amazon price that I did. That's maybe my only complaint - the retail price for this is a bit expensive for a kid's rug. Otherwise, no complaints!
