Actually very imformative and I love the pictures of the mistakes. I am actually learning from you and quite frankly I am not sure if I have ever learned anything from a design blogger. Maybe how to rewire a lamp or something like that but not how to design. When, if ever, is it ok to go rugless in a living room? Thanks so much! How do you feel about putting rugs over carpet? I have a big living room but it is wall to wall carpet. What should I do? One way to think about this is if, instead of a a wood floor you bought some wallpaper and had the walls covered in it.
Would you be afraid of covering most of the walls with pictures, mirrors, curtains and book shelves?
I think you would not, because the room would feel empty and incomplete without them. Think of your floors the same way. Hope that Helps! First, thank you for choosing a price point that is more widely affordable.
I get tired of magazines and designers calling things affordable that are totally unattainable for the average person trying to make things work while still having a beautiful home. Second, what is the bedroom rule? Is bigger better in a bedroom too? Clever girl…foolish of me to ever doubt you! This is certainly one of the 10 design commandments!
I definitely feel, however, like I am in a predicament with rugs. I live in a bungalow and have no entryway, so the front door opens right into my small living room. Right now I have a 5 x 8 rug floating my couch that is flanked against a wall.
This is a story of a goddess called Mother vision, who built her realm and wanted it to be free from evil. she created two sons possessing her godlike genes to be.

If I move up to an 8 x 10, which would also float the pair of slipper chairs I have against another wall, there would be no hardwood border between the rug and my fireplace. Everyone that entered would have to traipse over the rug to get to rest of the house. Do you think it would be better to go with a bigger rug in a natural material that can handle that wear and tear OR keep a smaller floating rug and have a space where people could walk on the hardwoods?
I have been going back-and-forth since it is time for a new rug! This came at the most perfect time. We have 2 his and her desks across from each other on opposite sides of the room. However, it looks really strange and too small. Any tips? Three boys over here in mi casa.
And where do these elusive beasts reside? Glad it has your approval. Love it, great advice. To take this theme a bit further… how would you go about picking a run for a dining room? Do your same rules apply? What if your dining room is quite narrow… do you want your rug to cover up the majority of the floor? So many questions and I would love to know the answers! You are nailing it lately!
Are you high? But where does one get really big rugs? When you buy a ginormous rug do you tend to go solid, or bigger print? I want a bigger rug and can really use some help finding and choosing one. Are you high??? Did you actually say that to Emily? How could you speak to her like that? She is not a naughty child.
jasonsheesley.com/cell-track-tool-galaxy-a5.php She is trying to help. I am curious to hear what you think about oval rugs… Would that help give you a big enough visual base for the living room seating, while still minimizing corners that might stick out into hallways or walking spaces? Great post with specifics that are really helpful! If my tv console is opposite my couch and I have the front feet of the couch on the rug, do the front feet of the TV console also need to be on the rug?
The wind had shifted from our backs to our faces, and we needed to respond. Today the figure is a third or less. Back to home page. How should the bed sit on it? Related Stories.

So, we recently purchased a very large sectional. A seventeen foot sectional to be exact. What is one to do when the sofa is this long? Are there oversized options that will even work without breaking the bank on custom? Dear Emily, I have been a lurker on your blog for many moons now. However, after this post and the analogy the other day to a giraffe in high heels crossing a stream on a log—which I found completely hysterical— I feel compelled to comment on how much I enjoy your content.
Love this post! Also, i am loving all the recent posts!!!!! U guys are awesome!!!! And one more thing, what would you call your style? For pinteresting purpose. I remember you mentioned this in one of your blog posts some time ago. Thank you for this post! I can attest that it is nearly impossible to find affordable large rugs. This is so great. Thank you!!
But, can you do a post about rugs in a bedroom? Where does the rug go? How should the bed sit on it? Do I need two? Good lord I cannot pick two rugs or convince my husband that we need to so please say no.
Any advice would be helpful! My living room is tiny. It is a huge pet peeve of mine. That was a great roundup.
Thank you. Hi Emily! What a great post.
One larger rug under a smaller one? Could you please share? I have an 11 foot long sectional with chaise on each end sitting on around? All the inside legs are on the rug but it never felt right. I think that rug will work in my dining room and a larger one should move into the living room. Thanks for helping push that along and thanks for being my favorite daily read.
I am a self confessed rug hoarder, I probably spend more time looking at rugs on the internet then anything else! When I got it in my space the stark color was too jarring for my room and I discovered that with two cats I am not a shag rug lover. On the plus side the visual he got of a larger size rug convinced my husband that the space really needs it and all the other rugs dwarf the room.
LOVE this blog!! Salivating over this post. In a cute bulldog puppy way… not like a creepy girl in her sad cubicle… oh wait…. Such a great post. One thing I really appreciate is when you give a firm suggestion and then you acknowledge why we might not be making that choice. Example here: Buy a bigger rug. With the openness of the home and the airiness of the ceiling it really needed that carpet to ground the seating area I layered it over wall to wall beige carpet, too.
What can I say? Hugs and hugs! Can that be possible if the living area is small???
