Living Room Design Help

I need help matching this design! I need curtains, throw pillows, and a large rug. I'm not that great at decorating because I usually try to get too matchy. I wasn't able to get these pillows because they quickly sold out but was able to a pillowed footstool that has this design. The living room we are moving to is very light...like white walls and very light carpet...not my choice, we are renting! I would appreciate any help or suggestions! Thank you! :)

Since you're renting, and assuming you already have some furnishings such as a neutral couch that will coordinate with your adorable footstool, and maybe not everything will be a forever investment piece, I did a quick look at Target for you.

Here you'll see their Maples Fretwork area rug, Fretwork border window panel, Honeycomb accent table, and Burke slipper chair...your footstool will tell you what to choose. It's a great inspiration piece.

Barnhard has made good suggestions for you, although I'm tiring of the fretwork, lattice and chevron rugs. You could add more green and try a wool sisal-look rug bound with one of the colors from the upholstery.

I like the design. Where did you find the foot stool?

Wow thank you Barnhart! I really love those suggestions! My only issue is that I feel like I need something darker in the room since it's so light already. What do you think? I got the footstool at kohls for $40! :)

I guess I was picturing you already having a brown leather couch and dark floors. If you need something else to ground the space then perhaps a rug with more of the deep green...

Love it! My couch and recliner are tan so that's my struggle but I like the dark rug and chair. Thanks again!

Mark, is that a rug? Or is it a chair pattern? I really like that!

It's a rug. Have a look at the rugs on this website. Very reasonably priced I think.

Here is the link to this rug. http://www.rugsusa.com/rugsusa/rugs/shaw-edendale/gold/1373VG3311200-18028.html

Mark - are you finding a majority of rugs here are NIS? I hesitate to advise them since most aren't available. Retail portion of site needs updating and editing.

Love that one Mark.
aholman, that second, darker rug was from rugsdirect.

I love these suggestions! It looks like these are in stock from what I can tell. I also like the spice and brown rug that is the same style. Maybe would add a little more contrast to the room?

@decoenthusiaste to be honest I have not spent that much looking at carpets on this site.
@ aholman86 best of luck, I hope anything you choose from this site is available for you ! I really do like that particular carpet as well.

Really like Barnhart's rug suggestion best to add some contrast. I see your walls are also a beige, right? Actually like almost everything he suggested for you.

Yes Cindy, the walls in our current house are beige but the house we are moving to in a matter of weeks is an off white. I'm worried about it being to bland but I think all of these suggestions will be great!

What color is your floor? Can we see a picture?

The floor is a very light off white...we are moving 3 hrs away so I don't have any pics right now. I really hate that the carpet and walls are so light!

Oops, sorry ... I read your dilemma yesterday, I should have read it again today so I would know that you had already answered my question about the floor in your dilemma's question. I am looking for a rug for you, I will let you know if I find something.

BTW, I like what Barhnart mock-up and I really like the rug suggested by Mark but since you said you want something dark, I will try to find something darker.

Your foot stool fabric is beautiful.

Thanks Suzanne! I appreciate all the help and I love the footstool fabric as well :) I'm so bummed they are sold out of the throw pillows and I have looked at every kohls in my area for them with no luck. We are moving officially next month so a lot of this will be much easier when I am already there. I just wanted to have a few things in place so it will feel like home :)

It is probably wiser to wait until you are moved but I thought it was worth to show you this one: http://rugsexpress.com/capri-to-delicate-scroll-orange-1613-17.html
