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 the leaning frames on the shelves above the couch; and the coffee table is gorgeous! / Black, white and neutrals with blue greens.Pictures : Interior Design Trends 2014 - Living Home Decor Idea by keri
