Janell Beals - House of Fifty Mag added this to 11 Area Rug Rules and How to Break Them
Rule 5: 18 inches of bare floor around the rug. The next rule has been a standard for ages, and this approach states that there should be approximately 18 inches of bare floor between the rug edge and the perimeter walls of the room, bringing in traditional proportion. This guideline is great in rooms that are enclosed and separate from surrounding rooms, as opposed to open concept spaces.

18 inches of bare floor around the rug is a good rule of thumb to remember. Or if the room is very small, 8 inches.

love the shelving on the side - maybe use this concept in the dining room, on the n/e end (where dining and living rooms meet). Can use shelving for wine glasses, bar area, etc.
