ChocolateLime:  It looks great. I honestly wouldn’t spend any money on an area rug that may not work in your new home. It looks bright and spacious as is.

Everything looks so much better, brighter, and more spacious! I think it looks great and I’m sure potential buyers will think so too (:

 It looks great! I agree, a nice area rug will pull the room togetger. Keep in mind, you don’t need to buy new. Check out Craigslist for one that’s in good condition. You can also rent one if you’re in a major metro area, they have rental stores just for house staging.

ChocolateLime:  Did you have the blue before?  I just remember black & red and I really love the blue, if it was there before I didn’t pick up on it!  I love the change, while I liked the look before, it wasn’t something I would do.  It looked to masculine/modern or something before whereas it still has a similar feel but much more something I could see myself in.

I think it looks great! I also don’t think you need an area rug.

It looks awesome!  I agree with Julies, I don’t think you need an area rug.  It looks so bright and open like this, and you can see the floors really well.  People can envision a rug if that’s what they would prefer.

Is that a cat scratching post by the couch?  I’d stick that away when anyone comes over, as well as any other clutter you can possibly hide away.

Beautiful color scheme! And making the playroom a dining nook is smart – many more people can relate to needing that space now 🙂

Great improvements! The living room looks twice the size! I wouldn’t even bother with a new rug – show off those amazing hardwood floors!

It looks beautiful!!! I think you did a great job! I agree with others that I don’t think an area rug is necessary. I like the openness of the space. Best of luck to you! Keep us updated. 🙂

Weird thing I learned from a professor during my undergrad stint. She told me her realtor had told her to hide all her books (both her husband and her are professors – so you can only imagine how many books they have). Apparently, people buying a house don’t trust homeowners with loads and loads of books! It’s a psychological thing.
