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.
all the lovely things: cute shelves - white kitchen - old and new - brass and glass, teapots and ye olde (but not) radio, and some herbs. Charming but clean. Minimalist vibe, yet with all the adorable things.
