do you lay the rug on an angle, as well, or would it remain the same as the fireplace?
Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

The Rug is also at an angle, because it is the right size to do that. If the rug is room size, it works better if it stays with the angels of the room. There are a number of smaller rugs in this room.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Shoshana Gosselin added this to 13 Ways to Dress Wide Windows
A window scarf draped across a long window will create an elegant yet lightweight look. Unlike a valance, it will let more sunlight through.
Becky Dietrich, Interior Designer added this to Curtain Speech
Now we enter the world of top treatments. Swags and jabots are at the other end of the spectrum from curtains: They are inherently and irrevocably formal in feel. The horizontal portion that swoops across the top is the swag, and the complex pleated portion trailing down the sides is the jabot. “Jabot” is a dressmaker’s term originally describing a ruffle attached to the front of a man’s or woman’s shirt. Jabots are often lined with a contrasting fabric, which is revealed along the bottom edge with each pleat. Proportion is especially critical in these treatments, but that subject demands an ideabook of its own.
