Need help working around an antique oriental/persian rug!
I'm recently married and moved in to my husband's home. He has some antiques that I CAN'T get rid of. One being his grandmother's persian/oriental rug. It has red, navy blue, green/sage, cream colors in it. It takes up a good portion of our living room. The furniture in the living room is all his and I plan to change it at some point also....except for the wing chair, which I can reupholster. I plan to put a different rug in the dining room and foyer, which are both just off of the living room. You can see all three rugs at the same time. Any suggestions on what kind of rugs to get for the foyer and the dining room that will coordinate with the living room rug? I'm tyring to go for an updated take on traditional....a bit more transitional. It's hard with the antiques. I have the antique table in the dining room that I can't get rid of either. Anyhow, any suggestions on rugs and maybe even on furniture for the living room would be appreciated! I SO need a designer...but my hubby won't let me spend the money on one. :-/
Oh, I should also mention that I'm not a huge fan of red. Touches of it is fine but I don't want lots of it. :-)
