I would go more neutral, beige, brown. Size looks like you need bigger thinking 8 x 10. Measure and use the 3D app. I think 5 x 7 might be too small. The 3D thing helps give you an idea. From what I’m seeing is the brown couch, some red orange, some red. If you throw that into a rug it could get overly busy unless you find something you love. It needs to be big enough. Safavieh Hudson Shag Collection SGH280A Ivory and Grey Moroccan Ogee Plush Area Rug (8' x 10') ok so here’s what to think about. What length of rug do you want? Plush, Berber, thin and hand woven? How do you clean it? This matters because longer may not let a room a work. Kids? Stains? Pets? I like shag but didn’t buy shag. Why? I’ve got a cat that rarely gets sick. Cleaning that out of shag sounded horrible. Think about stains. So if you tend to spill things and stain things don’t go really light. The lightest I go is ivory. Really Dark can make the room look smaller but if your choice is dark or stains go dark. Amazon and Wayfair (they seem a bit higher than amazon) have 3D view or virtual view. Use that to at least see how rugs look in the room. It gives you an idea especially if you’re going out of your comfort zone. Something like this is lower pile. Unique Loom Autumn Collection Checkered Abstract Casual Warm Toned Multi Area Rug (9' 0 x 12' 0) it looks like you tend to stay with warmer colors. A cool colored rug would be tricky. I would stay warm. If you change colors often don’t pick a rug to match the room just go neutral. Sculpted rugs have designs cut into the carpet. Large sculpted usually look nice, smaller not so much. Certain sculpted look tacky. In general I would say yes to something like this. Orian Rugs Super Shag Collection 392470 Sycamore Area Rug, 7'10" x 10'10", Ivory , Orian Rugs ANOMALY DARK MULTI 89"X120" Multicolor, LA 3D Shag Shaggy Striped Woven Braided Hand Knotted Feizy Accent Fluffy Fuzzy Modern Contemporary Plush Decorative 8-Feet-by-10-Feet Polyester Made Area Rug Carpet Rug Brown Beige Gold Colors if you need 5 x7 and like heavier designs Msrugs Shaggy 3D Brown/Beige Area Rug 5' x 7' 999

While there may be some guides as far as what to avoid like a tiny rug. It needs to be functional, your style (picking something that you don’t hate is different than you love, you’re spending good cash get you love), something you can vacuum. It’s going to be big enough taking it outside and shaking it is insane. Some prefer safe. Safe would be lighter brown or neutral like the following.

Safavieh California Premium Shag Collection SG151-2424 Taupe Area Rug (8' x 10')

Safavieh Hudson Shag Collection SGH281S Beige and Ivory Moroccan Diamond Trellis Area Rug (8' x 10')

Well Woven Layla Beige Shag Wavy Stripes Pattern Area Rug 8x10 (7'10" x 9'10")

Well Woven Helga Beige Flat-Weave Hi-Low Pile Geometric Boxes Area Rug 8x10 (7'10" x 9'10")

Just some links and suggestions to help you narrow it down. If you buy non prime from amazon you can message them to clarify if they charge return shipping if it doesn’t work for you. At 150 and over price tags some will offer it if you ask.

For Curtains: I love this fabric - It's sheer and bright.

As for placement: I agree keep the couch where it is, but maybe take the blanket off the seat cushions and fold it neatly on the back of the couch?

Place some decorative throw pillows on the couch and scoop chair : maybe these? or these

For above the couch you can either buy some canvas wall art or you can search some of your local shops for cheap basic wooden canvas or frames and cover them with fabric you like and stapling them on the back.

Other items: Near the entry way where the plant is sitting on the floor, Can you hang the bike there? Not too high, just keeping the tires a few inches from the floor.

How to hang a bike:

TV: I would wall mount the TV high (eye level when standing) between the windows and hide the cords, you can fish them through the wall or get a kit to run them alongside the window frame and down to the outlet. I would aslo place a floating shelf under the tv for your dvd player and other media:

Here are a few ways to hide the cords:

I would move the trunk and place it on the floor below the TV.

Take the electrical spool and stain/paint as you mentioned in one of the comments and use it as your coffee table.

Take the plant from the floor by the entryway and place it on a decorative stand in front of the window where the bike was with a few other plants you have:

I would ditch the small book shelf by the door. Place a wall mount book shelf above where the bike is hung and another small one above the scoop chair on the shared wall with the kitchen. Go to a local consignment shop and look for some nick knacks and things that speak to you to use as book ends or get a shelf with ends like this:

I would hang wall mount coat hooks above where the book shelf was by the door and sit a small shoe rack on the floor. Like this: and

Leave the dining table where it is. Above the dining set I would look for a brightly colored wood or canvas painting or funky clock.


It looks like there is a guitar in a case in the corner by the bike/window... If so, maybe take it out of the case and display it on a stand- it'll be easy to access for random play time and look cool when not in use.

I know you only mentioned the living room, but I can't help but notice the kitchen. I see you have what looks like a small strip of drywall between the tile above the sink and the start of the sloped ceiling. Maybe place a wall mount paper towel holder on the strip above the sink?

Buy 2 of the wall mount towel holders. Use one over the faucet for paper towles and put the other one to the left of the sink above the counter. Use S-Hooks to hang you coffee/tea cups there.

To the right of the sink between the sloped ceiling and the window? it looks like you have a little bit of was space. Maybe add some small floating shelves there to help keep items off the countertop.

Intsead of the metal dish rack I would place a brightly colored drying mat to the right of the sink and put the cutting board where the dish rack was. This will help give you some counter space to prepare meals and drinks.

All this is great :) I do have access to a Ikea and I'm open to painting my own walls. My budget is fairly open so that shouldn't be much of a deal breaker for me... I love this and think that I'll be leaning towards it. Any bed frames / sofas / night stands in mind?

I currently have these lamps for the night stands and this

I also have this Chaise but don't know if I'd be able to place it in front of the bed so I'm unsure on if I'll be using it or not...

On a side note I totally love these and plan on getting them :) I'm open to a black / white theme like in this photo: since I feel like it would go with my current desk .

Thanks a ton for all the info and work you did!!! Your're amazing!

Edit: I'm open to having it be fairly white honestly.. things such as a black / white painting over the bed and a white couch in front of the bed. I love the little hints of brown since they make it feel a bit more nature-yy. I love Ikea and amazon so for the time being those would be my two go to shops.

Edit2: You'll probably hate me for this but this is my current comp chair which I love and am very reluctant to move..

u/Purpalilylady · 2 pointsr/DesignMyRoom

Student, not designer! Just some of my thoughts!

First thing's first, just give it a good cleaning. Move everything and organize. Right now there's tons of clutter and trash. It will be easier to move things around once the floor and all the surfaces are clean.

My next recommendation is to get some curtains they will add visual weight to your windows and give the room a sense of balance. They don't have to be heavy or thick just to bring you eye around the wall and make it feel more complete. I think something similar to this might be nice and inexpensive.

On the mirrors, they are not helping much where they are. Being so close to the left side draws your eye and leaves it there without something to balance on the right. Those I would play around with. Maybe try turning them sideways and hanging them over the bed, or separating them and putting one on either side. Also, center your bed between the windows.

From a design perspective I would move your dresser to be adjacent to your bed. Again, achieving a sense of balance. You have a large room, maybe get a fun chair or a larger rug to help you take up some of the negative space. You can find good pieces of furniture at thrift stores/garage sales that are pretty inexpensive, and of good quality.

I think what you have done with the lighting and the color is a very good interpretation of your inspiration pictures. Your room will always benefit from personal and unique art!

Anyway those are just somethings that stand out. Good luck with your room!

Personally, I hate houzz (pronounced whose), they are greedy, steal ideas and are primarily an advertising/sale site (sure to get down votes from houzz fans). Though occasionally they have good ides. I am not a fan of pinterest, either, also because they steal content and often don't link back to the provider. Thankfully there is still a lot of content on YouTube that they haven't managed to co-opt.

You actually have a right setup of the sofa and the tv. Just need a little make over.

  1. For the sofa, why not add some cover? to add an accent like this one.
  2. Put some rugs, a white or grey rug would be great just like this.
  3. The bookshelf, you can put it in the corner. (I can't actually see what's on the other side of the photo so I can't suggest moving it) Then paint it white to lessen darkness of the space, put some succulent plants, books and some small frames and arrange it like this.
  4. Remove the blue and black storage. (Is that a storage?) you can put them away or in your kitchen.
  5. Then the wall will leave blank, you can hang some wall art on it. Wall Art of your choice or what you love (characters, nature, flowers) I've found some elegant wall arts here.
  6. The room is dark, I think you need to add some light above the tv and I suggest adding a wallpaper to add some accent coz the room is kinda bald and dark. You can get your idea here.

    I hope it helps you. ;) It's just my suggestion by the way. \^_\^
u/heycupcakes · 1 pointr/DesignMyRoom

The title made me cringe, you can just ask for help, no guilt trip needed. :)

So, I think art and textiles are what you're missing here to give your room some warmth and personality. Your room doesn't really say anything about you, what are you into? What colours do you like?

For art you don't need to spend tons of money - hit up sites like society6, etsy, deviant art, etc and grab some prints that speak to you in some way. I would use either of the long walls you have to create a nice gallery wall of a few prints you like. Pick up cheap frames from IKEA, Walmart, discount-store-of-choice, keep the frame colours the same (all black/white/birch/whatever) to keep the collection cohesive.

Use what you have already for additional interest - hang that guitar(s? Is the blue thing on top of the armoire also an instrument?) with a guitar hook.

Textiles like bedding, and curtains will also personalise the space and can be a place where you go big and bold with colour if that appeals to you. It's also possible to recover your chairs with a new fabric, again something that would make it potentially more 'you'. The contrast of traditional furniture with spunky fabric is stylish and a good way to keep it feeling more modern.

Definitely get a new overhead light, and perhaps a desk lamp as well. Well-designed rooms have more than one source of lighting, so you can change it up for the task at hand.

If you want to go for the bonus round, think about picking up a plant or two to give the space some life. Google low-maintenance plants if you have a black thumb - there are plants that can withstand a fair amount of neglect but still bring some green into your world.

The most important thing is to find stuff that you like - you can be advised to pick this colour or that colour, or this print or that painting, but if you don't like them, what's the point?

u/robin8118 · 1 pointr/DesignMyRoom

If you have the space, this is pretty awesome, imo. Or you could grant a little girl's wishes by getting this desk because I love it so much and think it'd be great with the chair! 😍

u/acornedbeefhash · 11 pointsr/DesignMyRoom

Love what you’ve done with the place! Love the mirror above the fire place. I’d recommend this rug from amazon. The soft geometric pattern isn’t too harsh or too floral and “girly”. I find it to strike the perfect neutral.

A soft off white or grey rug to match the accent chair would be perfect.

Also a nice deep wood rectangular coffee table would looks great to tie in the wood tones of the table.

u/suenodemucha · 2 pointsr/DesignMyRoom
u/adrienev3 · 3 pointsr/DesignMyRoom

I bought this rug about a week ago. I love it. Its very soft and in-expensive!


I think the Grey or Deep pink would look great and would be amazing for throwing different colors in there!

u/netty5522 · 3 pointsr/DesignMyRoom

honestly just do the same setup as u/carcaju suggest and mount the tv as it is in the picture, put the desk in the same spot as well. Definitely ditch the entertainment center. if that dark blue (?) lounge chair thing has 4 legs you could potentially get bed raisers like these to put creat some space for your records and games and such, and then itll be a little higher as well for better tv viewing

u/orange-blossom · 2 pointsr/DesignMyRoom

Ditch that dark corner shelf and get some nice over-toilet storage (one | two) that you can organize with baskets, bins, folded towels, etc. Weed out any bath products you're not using.

Replace the curtains with something more modern and light (one | two)! You could even just put some privacy film over the window so you don't lose any light. Add a hanging plant or lantern (to warm up the lighting) to the corner above the toilet, and a tall laundry basket or wastebasket next to the sink.

As others have mentioned, a rug is a great idea - they also make ones that fit around toilets (one | two).

  1. Declutter

  2. Get some frosted window film and apply it to the glass doors in your desk cabinets. That way you can hide away your clutter without anyone seeing it.

  3. Whatever the ribbons and stuff on the wall are, they need to be moved. You might consider putting a big slab of cork board where they are hanging give you a spot to attach important papers, reminders, photos etc etc

  4. Your bookshelf is overloaded at the top, and virtually empty at the bottom. Evenly distribute the weight so that the boards don't sag. Fill in any extra space on the shelfs with the knick knacks that are currently cluttering your desk.

  5. mount a hook somewhere to hang your earphones

  6. Consider getting a monitor mounting arm for your PC monitor. The Amazon Basics Single Arm monitor mount is 100 bucks, but its built like a tank. Being able to move the monitor and have it floating gives you more usable desk space and it would allow you to move your monitor directly in front of your webcam in case you needed to show someone something on the monitor during a video chat.

  7. I would consider replacing the desk lamp with something that puts all the light directly on the desk. You have a floor uplight in the background giving you plenty of indirect light. You don't need to stare at a lit up globe all day on your desk too
u/fidler · 19 pointsr/DesignMyRoom

Don’t listen to the top comments. Everyone always reverts to neutrals. Get some color, a rich yellow or another color would be amazing. At least something with some vibrance, don’t be afraid to add color to a room that’s otherwise neutral. People will give you all kinds of compliments for it.

Edit: some ideas (not necessarily to purchase these. Just links)

  1. Safavieh Monaco Collection MNC243N Vintage Bohemian Navy and Light Blue Distressed Area Rug (8' x 10')
  2. Safavieh CAM134Q-3 Area Rug, 3' x 5', Gold/Ivory
  3. nuLOOM Joeann Vintage Persian Area Rug, 7' 10" x 10' 10", Blue
u/its_called_life_dib · 3 pointsr/DesignMyRoom

Many of your colors are similar to the colors on my pinterest board for future decorating, so I'll go ahead drop in a couple links for you on tables!



very similar tables, but Sonmics/Amazon has matching end tables that go with the coffee table if you look around for them. I'm thinking about getting two of those and using that as my coffee table instead, as they'd be easy to relocate if I needed the living room space for something else.

as for art, I don't know what to recommend for you; just that you'll want your focal pieces to have some of the living room colors in them.

u/lascalaveras · 2 pointsr/DesignMyRoom

that's rough - ikea doesn't have a lot of options typically.

How about a nice grey couch? I wouldn't keep the legs on this one though. (I looked on the website and picked a random European country - hopefully they have the same stuff at your ikea):

It looks like you're into purple -and I like purple with gray (it's a bit less harsh than against black) so if you get a grey couch, you could have a purple rug too. Maybe purple drapes (but not both - that's too much!).

Also - you have a beautiful bathroom, but how on earth does it have no medicine cabinet or storage? I say get some free standing shelves for under the sink or just suck up the cost and buy a cabinet to install under there. Either that or buy a bathroom tray to put on top of that clothes washer to put your things in:

u/i_was_a_lemur_once · 2 pointsr/DesignMyRoom

Do you mean like this ?

Actually this post got me thinking and now I’m thinking of doing this along the back window with a rolling cart in front. I think that will be a great use of space!

u/Serrahfina · 3 pointsr/DesignMyRoom

Depending on the space you have, you can look at something like this. They come in all sizes. It's what I use for mine and love it.

I recommend buying bed risers to elevate your bed so you can fit some storage bins under the bed.

u/naddyliteVT · 1 pointr/DesignMyRoom

I would suggest mounting it where the mirror is and using a pull down style mount. Something like this:

u/tomgabriele · 5 pointsr/DesignMyRoom

What do you think about putting the TV over the fireplace on a pull-down mount so you can watch at a normal height most of the time, with the option to raise it up safely out of the way if you want to have a fire.

Or just have it on a TV stand right in front of the fireplace that you could move out of the way if you really wanted to have a fire?

Having the TV on that wall does seem to be the most logical place for it.

Sorry for being late, this took me lots of hours to make. Didn't get to finish it last night, so continued today.

Note: I only did this for fun, I am not an amazing expert in terms of interior design.


I used Google's SketchUp, which is a free 3D rendering . I haven't used this in a long time and also couldn't find the installation file to run this. So instead, I used the browser version. Which worked very well, but I couldn't find props, so I hand made everything.
Yes, the bloody plants were a disaster! I also went a bit crazy on my own picasso. Deal with it!

  • 3D render pictures:
  • Picture 1
  • Picture 2
  • Picture 3

  • Size reference list:
  • Couch, TV table, TV, Coffee table, Bookshelf
  • Chair, Small round table, Slim side table, Plant (lol)


    Overall, I am not too sure about the fireplace. It feels a bit too cramped, but I had it further away from the fireplace which made it a bit awkward in terms of the couch.
    I do really like the couch, but maybe instead of the coffee table, get either a smaller one or not one at all. You could consider a small TV stand and wall mount the TV instead.

    Anyway, if you have any question. Don't hesitate to ask!
