Just this week I moved into a small but lovely apartment that's 617 square feet. I would like some ideas on the living room ideas. I want something that captures the living room, was thinking about big curtains but then it would block the window and door to balcony so I decided to pursuit the idea of an area rug. The rug will go in front of the couch in the center of the living room (see picture of living room and kitchen cabinets below). I know i want something modern, now I'm trying to decide the color of the rug, either dark or light? What do you think? I am also getting a coffee table, but I guess that would depend on the color of the rug. Lastly I'm looking at some bar stools to go around the counter I am also attaching pictures here . Please help me to choose or give more ideas ! I would like things to be valuable, nothing too expensive. Thanks !
