When choosing a color, you’ll want to look at how much natural light the room receives throughout the day and think about your other sources of lighting. Natural, fluorescent, and incandescent light can all change the look of a paint color, which is why it’s important to see the color in your space before you break out the roller and brushes.
Area rugs belong under the furniture – all the furniture if you can manage it. Exposing some flooring around the edges of the room is fine, but when using an area rug you want to make sure it’s big enough that all the furniture in a seating arrangement can sit on it. At the very least you want the front legs of large pieces to sit on the rug (the backs can be on the floor if necessary).
To visually set apart that floated sitting area in the middle of the room from the room's other functions, Amy Stone's design team chose a rug just larger than the couch and matching chairs. The edge of that rug doesn't extend all the way to the walls as you'd expect; instead, the café table dining area and console/desk sit outside of its edges. The line visually cues that you're moving from one "zone" into another, which keeps the furniture from feeling like a jumble.
There are certain issues that always come up when trying to arrange living room furniture. From creating conversation areas to determining a focal point, to figuring out the best size rug, these tips will help you create a functional and visually pleasing living room.
