I love the rugs, but also think there are too many covering that great floor.

The rugs personalize this home. The owners obviously have a very nice collection and have put it on display. The nice thing about area rugs- you can change them out with the seasons, and they cut back on the echo factor with bare floors. It IS someone's home, after all, and not a model for a magazine.

the original paint was from ICI Dulux, and is no longer available in the US.

you could find a comparable yellow at Benjamin Moore http://www.benjaminmoore.com/en-us/paint-color/abstracta

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Lily Gahagan added this to Oriental Rugs Beyond the Living Room
3'x5' and 2'x3' oriental rugs can often be found for a song. Use a few of them to cover the floors of halls, entryways, and other connecting spaces that have a more irregular layout. More: An Oriental Rug: It Really Ties the Room Together Area Rugs to Love
Shawn Gauthier added this to Straight-Up Advice for Corner Spaces
Consider what opportunities lie inside of your corners. Is it possible you could carve out a niche like in this example? You could turn it into a home office, a bar or simply a space to corral toys. If such a renovation is within your budget, it could prove to be a lifesaver.
