What Houzz contributors are saying:
A spot of leopard. This racy pattern doesn’t even appear exotic in this context; the allover pattern gives it a traditional tone in this room. If you see a pattern you like in a broadloom, you can easily have it cut and bound to form a custom-size area rug.
Once you are happy with how it all looks on paper, you can start moving furniture around. Use masking tape to make an outline of any pieces you like but haven't yet bought. This will help with scale and help you avoid any unwanted purchases.If possible, arrange the furniture so it sits off the walls. This allows for airflow around the perimeter and actually makes the living room appear larger.Tell us: Share your living room success story! Did you plan out your space, wing it or hire a decorator?
