Q: I found the sofa I love and now I'm stuck designing the room around it, which has turned out to be more difficult than I anticipated. The walls are a very light purple, almost gray. There are two dark gray chairs sitting across from the sofa. Accent colors are plum and turquoise. I can't decide on a neutral rug, plum rug, black/cream rug, solid, patterned? I'm lost. Please help.
