For living rooms rugs, we would leave about 18"-24" off the wall depending on the size of the room and whether or not the room is shaped or if there is a hearthstone. We don‘t shape rugs around hearthstones. From simply bound sisals in a catalog to precious antiques at a good rug dealer, rugs come in an enormous range of prices and styles.

After all, it is the equivalent of the ground we walk on. Pastels and white carpets should be left to the occasional-use room, and even then feel like any minute a disaster might occur.
