Fabulous! I love rooms like this - cozy, masculine and not too dark. The suggestion is made to remove the rug for a listing photo. I can see the hardwood floors with the same stain which, without the rug, might be too much of a good thing. I would humbly suggest using a solid rug in a med light or light color such as the natural or ecru color in the pillow backgrounds. The solid color will anchor the room which no rug at all will make the room 'float' with out being busy and distracting in a marketing picture. Love the ottoman.
