If the real estate gods are with us, this will be our living room in a month or so. This shot is taken from the dining area, kitchen is to the left (you can see a little bit of the bar/island to the left of the shot. Front door is to the right and it opens directly into this room. Front door is big wooden double doors, with the same finish as the pillar.
This is the current owner's furniture so try to photoshop it out in your mind. My plan is to put the flat screen tv in the corner between the windows on the right and stage the living room furniture so that the furniture creates a "room," leaving the walkway to the sliding glass doors clear.
We have a large (72" I think) dark brown leather couch and club chair with ottoman. I think I will put the couch perpendicular to the wall on the right, creating a sort of foyer with the back of the couch. I plan to get a long table or console to put behind the couch to better define that area. The leather is about the same color as the dark brown chair in the photo.
As you can see, the tiles and paint color are mellow, warm colors. We're moving from a much smaller house so I don't have a ton of furniture. Yet. Also, our style leans toward the western/rustic but I really do not like a lot of native american stuff so I don't want a navajo or hopi-style rug.
Any ideas for colors/designs for a rug in that living room? I've never bought an area rug before so the options and considerations are a little intimidating!
thanks in advance :-)
