Help Pulling Together This Breakfast Nook?

Good Questions

Q: I have a rental kitchen that I can't paint (although have heard good things about fabric wallpaper), and have tried to make our breakfast nook a little cozier with a rug, and soon to be hanging pendant light (planning on making my own version of the Nelliana origami lamp shade, wish me luck).

I love this rug, but am wondering if it's too big, or it's overpowering the rest of the kitchen?

It was hard to capture the entire kitchen (please excuse the mess), so I apologize for the awkward photo angles and bad lighting!

Also — if anyone has any suggestions for what kind of window treatment would work well, or how to spruce up the rest of the kitchen (especially the stove area), I would definitely appreciate it!
