I need your help.

Now that we’ve acquired this awesome leopard rug in our master, we’ve been playing with moving our old master rug into the living room.

In our living room we have two separate seating areas: the couch/settee/ottoman area surrounding the TV and then the Barcelona chairs and mirrored coffee table by the fire. I had the idea to move the rug under the fireside seating area, first to distinguish it as a separate area, giving the room a bigger feel, and also, because the rug’s color and pattern perfectly mirror the pillows opposite on it on the settee.

And my husband and I, while getting used to the change it creates, both like it.

My mom came over and did not. My friend came and was not sure. I really think I do.

I would love your advice. Here is how the room looked before:

Thank you in advance!

Sincerely,

Undecided and Perseverating
