Love how they kept the walls white.

don't like the colours here and the floor furniture but like the idea of white living room w/ splashes of colour like this also high ceilings, wooden beams, brick

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.
