Rugs Are Chic Drawing Room Accessories

Let’s begin with examining the floor plan of Monica’s living room. We immediately see that it is open space, with any dividing walls being noticeable only by their absence. How does she then visually demarcate the living room from the kitchen and dining areas? By using a large-oversized rug! Monica’s flower-patterned rug does wonders to divide the space up. She also follows that golden rule of choosing rug sizes; it should be large enough to touch at least some parts, if not all, of the surrounding furniture thus tying them together. For your living room, pick out a chic rug that extends up to, or even goes beyond the furniture. It will help unite all the components together while adding texture and color. Not a fan of floral? Update the choice of pattern and color to complement the rest of your room. Rugs make for great drawing room accessories no doubt!

Coffee Table, The Cynosure Of Your Living Room

Let’s move on to furniture in and around the central area of the living room. Monica has several side tables scattered throughout the room and one can see the effective use of both wood and glass. We are also big fans of her center table, complete with its sculpted legs, that occupies the central part of your room with pride.

Monica’s large square coffee table isn’t just reserved for coffee, often being the centrepiece around which the friends cluster in the living room. We believe that such tables complete a room, often lending heart especially to otherwise spartan spaces. A table can also create defined passages of negative space, giving definition and makes for a fabulous decorative item for a living room!
