I’m seeing an updated mid-century modern vibe. A funky red-orange couch, blue accent chairs, and a white shag rug. Bright, cheerful and fun!

I’d add some different colored throws on a navy couch, with wood accents around the room.

Anoriginal piece of artwork would be lovely!

You can see some wrought iron on the bottom window pane. I’d procure some salvaged iron and create a headboard.

Reminds me of a quilt, never a bad thing.

I would include some plants and perhaps a real goldfish or two.

Megan Whilden January 18, 2013 at 11:49 pm

What a wonderful idea! I would include gold fish in a large cylindrical glass vase, just as pictured!

Oh what a lovely idea! The rug will be perfect with our Max Papart Lithographs and Nelly Panto Painting! Yes. Please enter me. I think our Million Dollar Apt in Downtown Seattle that we are purchasing is going to be INCROYABLE!

I would create a large casual floral arrangement in a large blue or red ceramic pitcher, featuring tall, brown branches and some bold flowers in the gold and orange tones. Perhaps some some large sunflowers!

Love working a room color theme around art 🙂

Beuatiful rug!

Patricia Olson January 19, 2013 at 1:17 pm

I would pick some of mt art work to match and give this and matching thing to my daughter. She is making As in collage and needs help to decorate her flat. The beautiful rug will help define space.

That rug is really cool. I’m a huge fan of Matisse and would love to put that rug in my work space. As a musician i feel as though it’s important to have lots of great colors around to draw inspiration from. Pick me!

Patty January 19, 2013 at 5:41 pm

Love color. Love, love, love the rug. I have a colorful kitchen which I enjoy baking in & this rug would make a perfect addition.

I would add some fresh flowers

Megan January 19, 2013 at 6:01 pm

I would add some Spanish pottery. It would be a great way to keep it authentic and add some pops of color.

John January 19, 2013 at 8:21 pm

The rug would look awesome under my new coffee table and dog

LauraS January 20, 2013 at 12:22 am

Bowls of fruit

Meghan Finley January 20, 2013 at 12:33 am

I’d add some modern furniture and a sculpture perhaps
