Don't Make the Same Mistake I Did

You guys, confession time. We all make mistakes and I have totally made mega millions of them. Take this living room above, for example. The rug I originally sourced for it was way too small. For some reason I tried to squash the whole sofa onto the rug. Correct solutions here would have been to reorient the rug so that only the front legs of the sofa were on it or get a bigger rug. After this photo was taken, this rug was replaced with a larger rug the whole sofa could fit onto. And all was back to better! People think rugs are accents, but they're vital to making your space feel like a comfortable interior and not a cave.
