Ok, excuse the shitty pic because a) it's on my camera phone, b) i'm not quite moved in yet and everything is messy and c) super shitty lighting conditions that my camera doesn't know how to deal with. My place looks much nicer IRL than it does in this pic. You can't tell from that pic, but my floors are a beautiful dark wood. My couch is black. I was thinking some sort of lightish white/cream/etc. rug. And I was thinking something plush like a flokati style. Opinions? You also can't tell from the pic but my living room is a good size. It extends for about 10 more feet to the right of the couch, but the couch had to go there because there's hallways and such to the right. What are the rules for how large a rug needs to be? I heard 1.5-2' from the wall. Is that true? I will need a large rug then because from wall (couch) to wall (tv) my living room is like 13'. Here's a diagram to help: Also, what should I cover my windows with. These green flower curtains were there when I moved in but I don't like them. Vertical blinds? My windows only go halfway to the floor. Some other curtain? Horizontal blinds?
