Please tell me if the rug color/pattern goes with the sofa/house? Thanks

Yes on the rug, but you need to lower your art. Bring it down to about 6" above the chair rail.

The rug is fine, but you need much bolder and bigger art above the sofa. The art you have is too small and hung about 12" too high. Also the white walls are too strong a contrast with the black furniture. The wood floor looks out of place. To fix that I would paint the walls a color that is closer to the floor color.Sherwin Williams Empire Gold SW oo12 might do the trick. Good Luck Bill

Thanks. I just purchased the rug at ikea and wonder if it works. Do you think it's ok if I put a mirror each side of the art? I don't want to remove these pictures.

You need much bolder and bigger art. Mirrors will not help. The rug is fine. You need color. Maybe paint?

Definitely color- if you get something big to hang on the wall you wont even have to paint or do anything significant.

You need large art behind the sofa.( ikea) use the other pieces of art on a smaller wall space, I would also add a black sheer on the outside is you panels.

The art you have looks rather delicate against the oversized black leather couch and bold rug. If you wish to keep the art, reframe them with wide mats and larger frames--white frames. That will add the impact others are suggesting. The bottom of the frames should be lower than they are now as Groveraxle and others advise.

Your accent pillows should pick up some of the colors of whatever art you hang. The same goes for a rug. Right now the contrast between the art and your bold rug, black modern couch, lamps and coffee table is jarring.

I agree with housegal, the art looks too small with the rest of the area. I think that the rug does go well with the sofa and pillows, though! here are a few ideas for art:

What size of art should I look for? And what color would go well with this scheme?

Your art should be 2/3 to 3/4 as long as your sofa. I can't tell how long your sofa is, but Ikea has these in different motifs which are 55" long:

Agree with the other designers in that the rug is fine but the artwork needs to change. I would suggest one piece that is 4 - 5 feet long by 2.5 - 3 feet in height and centered about 1.5 feet above the sofa. Or 2 pieces that add up to the same 4 - 5 foot length. Throw pillows should compliment. Here are some ideas. HAVE FUN!

The art is the wrong proportions for the space. The art should emphasize vertical not horizontal. Nothing at all is better than 4 pieces too small . Adding mirrors will not help.
