|By recovering chairs in a cheerful fabric color, and by adding a contemporary cocktail table,|
this client said the room feels more updated, less serious
A) this is how you can update the room if you keep your rugs
B) this is what you can do if you start with a clean slate - look at inspirations designer room photos, the sky is the limit!
Here are 3 must read suggestions for your options:
1) Keep some of the oriental rugs, but replace one or two with a natural fiber rug, perhaps a tone on tone soothing rug? or perhaps an inexpensive sisal? By bringing in less formal or busy rugs, the feeling of the entire home will change.
2) Find a color in the rug that you love!! Perhaps you can get rid of some of your dated burgundy fabrics, and recover furniture or replace window treatments in a lighter more cheerful fabric such as the soothing "spa blue green"?

|TOO BUSY!! |
This room would look much better if the chairs didn't "compete with" the busy
pattern in the rug. It's a good example of how several patterns make the room feel too busy!
