Q: We just recently bought a new couch and found this shelving system on craigslist (larger photo below). Now the hard part. We are looking to paint the wall behind the sofa and need a new rug. We’re leaning towards an off-white shag rug and painting the wall a light grey. We also need some art on the wall. One large piece with color to pull from or a grid of prints? Suggestions?
