How to make these different interesting pieces work together without ruining the space
Have just moved into a new house and am trying to make various pieces work. My in-laws give us a lot of expensive presents like art and rigs which are beautiful but I've often got to work around them. So my current quandary is whether I should toss the paintings? Or whether it is the rug that is too dominant? My ideal would be a sedate contemporary look.
Also, our tv unit is just looking so drab. Can I use the shelf below to make is look a bit cooler?
