Looky whats here - the gold damask rug that I was oh so undecided on when I ordered it.
I was concerned the color would clash but I don't think I have a problem there. Its a little too monotone as many of you suggested but I think I would prefer that than it being in the wrong color family. Its the perfect width for the room but I wish it were a bit longer so I could have some extra room at the back of the couch and chairs. Oh well, they don't make 8x14 foot rugs and I'm not about to shell out for a custom made one.
As I mentioned, the console and coffee tables in here are all wrong. Way too heavy and dark for what I want. Of course I can't find a metal + glass coffee table that I'm liking right now so it will have to wait until the perfect piece comes along.
In the meantime, I definitely need accessories. Here is where I always have a problem. I hate clutter so I'm loathe to add knickknacks without function but I definitely need something of interest in here. Pillows? A low centerpiece for the coffee table? Maybe something on the console table? Should I put anything behind the couch? I'm a bit lost here - suggestions?
