Put a Rug Under It

A rug can make such a difference in taking a room from sort-of-done to finished. As wonderful as hardwood is, in a living area it’s a rug on top of the wood that grounds the seating in the room. It ties it all together and invites you in.

Here’s my client’s living room with the major furniture pieces in place, but without the rug yet.

Yes, the drapes, end tables and lamps help a lot, too! But it’s the rug that fixes that feeling of the furniture just floating around in the room.

Here’s the before and after from the other direction:

I had fun photographing the room so here are a few more shots.
