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.
Love this idea! Lay a world map over 3 canvas, cut into 3 pieces. Coat each canvas with Mod Podge and wrap the maps around them. Let dry and hang on the wall. Then add pins to all the places you've been. Would love to do this with a map of the USA.
Creative Uses for Old Maps bookcase DIY - What a wonderful accent piece! Just cover the inside of an Old Bookshelf with Old Maps and create a focal point for your room. Maybe not a map but another poster of some kind.
