I think the bedroom needs improvement. The rug (in my eye) spoils the room; both the size and color are wrong. I'd use a larger (it should not cut the bed in half) off white simple rug and the room would breath calmly rather than cough.

Love the St. John's Wood photo with a sectional and mounted on the wall TV. I have struggled with this same dilemma in our living room. Just like London's period properties with long narrow rooms we have a town house in New York City with open plan living and dining room. The sectional consumes 10' out of 13' of width and leaves too little space for an entertainement center. I have long suspected that by simply mounting the TV on the wall would give it a nice clean look and an "almost" spacious feel. Beautifully done in this photo. Perhaps the author might consider another article on long narrow rooms and how to decorate them? Thank you soo much for the advice! Beautiful article!
