What Houzz contributors are saying:
Show off hardwood with a smaller rug. A traditional sitting area can be beautiful with bare flooring or a gorgeous rug, but there's no need to choose just one. An appropriate-size faux hide allows for the pattern of a rug with the warmth of dark flooring.
Place equally weighted objects on each side of the hearth for a symmetrical and balanced design, which is subconsciously pleasing to the eye. Here the symmetry of the urns on the hearth is echoed in the placement of the couches.
