This is a nice-looking living room with smaller rug. Perhaps the key is to frame the rug with sofas / sofa and armchair combo / sofa and the window. And another trick is to fill up the room so the size doesn't look awkward.
siblings shared bedroom for kids (divide colors with a neutral in the middle) love this idea! Going to use it when the girls start sharing a room so they can both keep their color scheme.paint the floor or find two different rugs?
