I wonder if the props were placed strategically to cover up the uneven ending of one color as you transition into the next? Surely it can't be perfect all the way around. That's just me, though. This playroom rug is STILL SO CUTE I can't stand it. I would love this in the kitchen, even. At the foot of the bed, too. Hey, I'm coming up with more ideas. I gotta go.
