This is a nice-looking living room with smaller rug. Perhaps the key is to frame the rug with sofas / sofa and armchair combo / sofa and the window. And another trick is to fill up the room so the size doesn't look awkward.
Striking Details: A Live Edge Wood Slab Kitchen Countertop — Kitchen Inspiration. I really detest almost all the design choices in this kitchen (personally), but that live-edge slab island piece is BEYOND beautiful!
I love this room, Scandi classic design pieces mixed with modern pieces, a french Bistro chair, monochrome could be make it dry but in my mind it's just perfect [esp love the black and white art wall, whilst not a new idea it's very well executed here]
