You are coming up with some stellar ideas each week so it’s time to do it all over again. This week is just a little different. Instead of room photos Brigida has sent us photos of what she has in the room. Can you make help her pull it all together? She is wrestling with a rug dilemma.
First I want to tell you that I love your blog. I would really appreciate if you could help me with some ideas about how to combine rugs in the dining/living room. I have a rectangular open plan living room/dining room, where I want a more contemporary decoration. Three of the walls are white and one was painted in a greyish chocolate brown. In the middle, separating the living room from the dining room, there’s a rectangular column in a almost black grey. The furniture is in dark wood (wenge), the dining table is white (lacquered) and the chairs are camel brown, similar to this one.
The sofa (with chaise long) has a sand colour, something like this, but lighter
and in the living room I have something like this
and a wenge center low table. I also have in the living room a Corbusier chaise long brown/white/black pony like this one.
I wanted to bring some colour to the space, so I bought this gabbeh rug – the colours are more vivid than in the picture to put under the white dining room table.
I want to put a rug in the living room, but I don’t know what colour will go better. I thought in a dark grey rug but don’t know. Can you please give some suggestions?
