We were responsible for the installation of the artwork. Unfortunately not sure about the rug.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Toronto Interior Design Group | Yanic Simard added this to How to Ditch the Drapes and Let Your Windows Shine
Art. If your tastes run to the whimsical or eclectic, consider hanging art in front of a window. This creates an unexpected statement and is especially effective in contemporary condos that have no other place for art.Tip: Make sure your art is secured well to the trim (and is in a UV-filtering frame). Or simply hang a light, inexpensive print on a stick-on hook for a fun look that can be changed when you want a different view.
