I LOVE your rug. I think a plain rug wouldn’t add near the visual interest to the room that you’ve got going right now. Plus the colors and pattern really brighten the room up even with the dark floors.

I love the area rug.. I also really like your dark hard wood floor.  I dont usually like that teal colour. but honestly it looks great in that room all put together with the dark floor, light coloured couch and fun rug. nice room!

I like it a lot.  I agree that the wood is too dark, but the rug does brighten up the area a lot.

I like it!  I think the rug actually compliments the floor, furniture, and paint.  You did a great job!! 

P.S. Your doggies are cute!

I really like the rug. it really adds visual interest. Without some pattern, the room would just be a bunch of blocks of color.

I personally love dark wood floors.  I think they look gorgeous especially with your wall color and couch.  But sorry–not a fan of the rug.  I like a more simple pattern and accentuate pattern with throw pillows.  It’s easier (and more economical) to change the look of your room with pillows rather than a rug.

@DL1818:  Your doggies seem quite photogenic!  In terms of pillows, I’d go for a combination…, sage/blue (?), chocolate, gold, AND an ivy leaf pillow with your colors (kinda like the links below).

Target has a bunch online!  Good Luck!

@DL1818:  I went through 3 rugs before I found “the one.” LOL!  I decided to jazz things up with pillows.  It was a money saver and helped my Darling Husband from pulling out his hair πŸ™‚

Why not pick up the rug and wall colors in pillows, but do slightly different shades? You could also use a small print on the pillows and play with the patterns.

Like this, different patterns but they all work together.

The rug is very nice, and I like the floors, but I think you could adjust the furniture placement a little. The sofa looks smooshed into the wall-is there any way to pull it out from against the wall or place it differently? Also, move the chair around a little and add a coffee table and the rug will look great. Adding a table lamp would add some height and visual interest as well.
