Help Houzzers! I bought this rug today because it was on a super sale ($130) but now I need your advice. Does it look ok? Or do I take it back. Is it too brown? I've got 48hrs to return it

Moved the rug a bit closer to window so it's in line with the hall...

Forgot to add, the collage in the white frame is temporary until I find art I like for that wall

This is the rug I had before. I like the colour better than the light brown but this rug is too small :(

Slide the whole sectional on to it and not just the chaise part. The pillows seem to work.

Even if you turn your favorite rug, did it still not fit? It almost looks like you could turn it??? I like how the favorite one just has more to it and the new one looks rather flimsy? Is it?

On my monitor, there is virtually no difference in the colors of the two rugs. Yes, the old rug seems more substantial, but I think the color of the new rug is fine. The pillows tie it in.

I agree with abbyjean that you need to pull it under the whole couch.

Moving sectional and rug isn't easy by yourself! Here's rug further under

There! That grounds it all and the rug looks sooo much better! It looks like it will stay in place better now, too.

Does this show colours better? Old rug is more cream and thicker

I like the rug, and I agree with moving the entire couch onto the rug

I've enjoyed this room, with that piano collage!!! I do like the tone of this new rug, too.

The color can work, but the placement seems off, you may want move the rug and make sure your sofa partially sits on it.

Just to show you size of old rug compared to new.

Thanks Abby! I came across some pics on my phone with how it was before and it's definitely an improvement :)

Like your new rug. Looks more contemporary and goes well with sofa.

Great price but looks too large for the space. In one photo it looks like the floors have some reddish tones. Have you considered a bolder carpet... In a RED?!?! I think it would look terrific! Bronze-toned decorative items, stubby fabric for draperies, Kilimanjaro covered pillows for sofa etc. Neat room!

Thanks for the comment lsemartha. I'm a little scared of red! More into muted tones

Think of it as you would a wonderful tailored brown suit .... Dress up the suit with a chunky red/orange necklace, a scarf that combines the brown suit, champagne colored blouse, and a little glitz of bronze-like heels! Smashing! Be brave!

Just saw that the old iPad changed 'kilim' pillows to Kilimanjaro pillows! Rats!

Sorry, but to my eye the rug is too big, too thin, and not exciting. How would you view the rug if it cost a bundle? If it isn't worth having at a high price, it's not worth having at a low price, especially since it is not materially different than the current too-small rug. For me, I would wait to find a rug that I loved, loved, loved.

I would return the rug and keep looking. Price doesn't matter if you don't love it.

Thanks for the honest opinion mcbriec! I hate paying money for rugs regardless. This was marked down from $400 and other rugs in there this size were up around $800. Bit too pricey for me!

Hubby said yeah it's nice. I like how it goes all the way under the couch. He knows more about decorating than he thinks!!

I like the new rug. The old one is nice too, can you use it elsewhere in house?

It might have to be gumtree for the old one chook. Someone else will have a use for it
