This is a nice-looking living room with smaller rug. Perhaps the key is to frame the rug with sofas / sofa and armchair combo / sofa and the window. And another trick is to fill up the room so the size doesn't look awkward.
This stunning kids room is created by The Animal Print Shop together with Frances Merrill of Reath Design. What I love about this room is that is it not a standard kids room (with pastel colors). It has a bohemian chic vibe but at the same time it is.
