Visual Description : The colours of this rug are royal blue, mustard, and pink. The central area is surrounded by six borders. The first border, from the outside inwards is a series of wave-like pattern in the colours navy blue, rust, and pale blue. The border following is mustard with blue and pink, stylized, floral imagery. The next border is thin and is a series of triangles in rust and mustard colours. The fourth border is the thickest, the background is pink and has repeated images that resemble flowers. These images are somewhat geometric. The next two borders are identical to the second and third border, but in reverse order. The centre area has a navy blue background with the same colour scheme metioned above. The pattern is symmetrical and again, appears to be of flowers.
