Crowdsourcing Decorating Advice

Ladies and gentlemen, the library:

This is currently my favorite room in the house. It needs only two things for perfection: a nail to hang up my framed photo of the Shakespeare & Co. bookstore in Paris and something to put my feet on while I read. This second need is turning out to be tricky. Of all the ottomans (ottomen?) I have looked at the only ones that work with the chair color and do not cost way too much money are white/cream, which does not work with my cream rug.

So I found another rug, which I think might work with the chair, but the overall effect might be too color-busy. The other option is to get a slipcover for the chair and change the color scheme altogether, but slipcovering a wing chair presents its own problems. What do you think? Should I get the rug and risk having to pay the return shipping?

Decorating is hard.

  1. I think the pop of color the rug would provide would look great. I say risk it!
