Answer
Opt for a braided rug - either room sized or large oval (or round) and go with the darker colors rather than the lighter tones.  Don't add a lot of "distinct" pattern in the rug because the walls are so busy with the paper pattern.  Stick to something that looks almost solid when you squint your eyes and look at it.

Expertise

Visit my web site at: http://www.jennifertaylorwojcik.com Decor: I've written about it, planned it, designed it and colored it, and I've never stopped loving it. It's not what you spend, or who made it, it's how it makes you feel.

Experience

College, advertising, public relations, marketing, free-lance writing and a plethora of creative endeavors have led me here. As an entrepreneur in decorative product design, I learned the hard way how tough it can be to be in business for yourself. A stint at a law firm taught me humility too. Some three thousand questions ago, I wondered if I could really help. Obviously, I'm still here and still taking your questions. God Bless You!
