Teal Sofa / Natural Oak Floor? And Rug?

last month

Hi all,

We're currently in the process of buying our first home and in the (I imagine) usual dilemma of trying to balance style with budget!

Our immediate focus is the living/dining room (approx 7.4m x 3.6m).

We've got our minds set on the Zinc Teal sofa from DFS. Our intention is to buy the corner piece (see link below) and the "cuddler" chair.


I've tried to show these (very roughly) in blue on the floorplan below.

Note: the red boxes are placeholders for dining table, shelving and my piano; the grey box is a placeholder TV stand. Neither of which is really to scale.

Question 1: In your opinion would these teal sofas look good (at least okay) with a natural oak floor (laminate...) like the one below?


Or should we go for a darker oak? My concern with dark is making the room feel too small.

Question 2: With a natural oak floor, what would be a good rug colour to go for between the sofa and other wall. I was thinking perhaps a very plain dark brown rug?

Other opinions welcome! We'll take any advice we can get!!!
