You have to love Dr Retro! !! He says it as it is! A beautiful mirror over the fireplace first then work from there.... we’ve spent a year getting furniture etc for the house we moved into. Because it is nothing like our last house,I was floundering. Alot of online searching, advice from reliable people (eg our candid smart daughter) & talking about practicality & good looks, & we gradually got what was right & what worked with our existing stuff. Magazines are a great help too. Good luck. You will end up with a great room.

I actually don’t like the round mat you have on the floor & would choose a rectangular one anchored with the chairs , wherever you put them- at the side of the fire place is obvious. I love the fire place & that big mirror needs to go over it.

great input everyone, thanks for your suggestions. Designer Rugs- Will I be able to put 2 different rugs in the room or should they be matching?

Hi there! So sorry for the late reply! They don't necessarily need to match, but keeping the style similar would be a good idea - art deco paired with art deco, contemporary with contemporary. If you do go with a matching design, you can always customise the colours or even the scale / placement of the design so that you have rugs that complement eachother but are not exactly the same.

That painting is fabulous ,I would add blue and white to your room, along with your white coffee table add a fab tray, mix patterns in blue for cushions.

I think the stars of your room is the lovely tan leather sofa's and the painting so I would keep the rug simple so as not to make it too busy, few cushions will be great.

I like the idea of wallpaper and if you could move Tv towards the door it seems off centre . A coffee table either glass or industrial style and a floor lamp in the corner. I would try moving armchair to face the wall/tv on an angle a bit and definitely large round mirror on the wallpapered wall . Freedom has nice large 1.2m Dylan mirror at a really good price.

Looking at your photos again it really stood out to me that you have a lot of wall pics that are small, repeating units - family photos, I presume. You don’t need to stand back to view small photos - in fact you don’t want to - so these may be better placed in a corridor or narrow space or for nice frames atop the many units you have around. I feel these panels of family photos add to the “cluttered” feel. Leave the walls for large pieces that define an area. Even a series of pics to encompass the space of the zone. This will help with the anchoring of zones and give the eye something large and focussing to settle on. You don’t need to spend heaps - Ikea have some lovely large pieces. Framed prints/posters can look very good if chosen carefully.

Hello deco friends. I was thinking it would be a fantastic idea to do weekend house swops. Love the idea of doing this with like minded people who take pride in their home so u know your home will be looked after. If anyone is interested in chatting about this my email is: jennycampbell14@gmail.com

Your house has beautiful features, it's sad that you don't like it, good advice above, choice of window treatment is also important to allow light into the rooms

You have a really gorgeous home - beautiful details! A lighter rug or perhaps even a pattern would help to lift the room. A great place to start for inspiration would be the details themselves - this project by Ann King (http://annking.com.au) actually took the ceiling pattern and created a custom rug, which creates a really striking traditional pattern.


Camilla Molders (https://camillamolders.com.au) is also a wonderful designer who designs custom rugs that fit perfectly with traditional features, you may find some inspiration here!

A few other colour and design suggestions - in terms of colour, working with all that lovely warm toned wood would be lovely, choosing cream and warm white hues. Or a subtle blue would be a great contrast!

Hi, I have bought 3 rugs from catch.com.au and they have been the best purchase. Tried to find in the first instance at all the stores in my area but could find what I liked and what there was were so expensive compared to what I paid. I attached a couple of photos of what I suggest for your room.

The big bold poppy print designer rug could work well with the feature fireplace and the black light fittings.

Hi Jo,
So sorry that my phone misspelt your name, auto correcting is so annoying, by adding greenery, bringing out your furniture from the walls as suggested it will look great, Love your artwork.

My personal favorite is timber flooring with rugs, they come in many colors and patterns and are easy to change. Plus you still have the softness underfoot when you get out of bed

Hi Caz! Patterned carpet could always be an option - it gives you all the versatility of a neutral shade but with a bit more interest, and is a lot more subtle that you might think!


In saying that, timber flooring with a rug does give you more options when it comes to your style, and are easy to move and swap when you need give your space a refresh.


All these projects use Greg Natale carpet - https://www.designerrugs.com.au/axminster-carpet/greg-natale-carpet-designer-collaborations/
