I'm having a hard time focussing on them because of that rug. It looks so out of place to me.

Wondering if the rug is a Wilton...

 

The room is quite boring without the rug.  Don't care for the pictures around the fireplace.

 

Kind on an uninspired room.

All my life I have detested (sorry) those awful gilded frames.

 

I especially can't stand those ornate, Victorian style gold frames. As Jackie Kennedy once said, and I agree, they are "horrors."  Her remarks are in a book by J. B. West "Upstairs At The White House."

 

I've read it at least 20 times, it's great.

I don't care for the pictures.  Maybe they have some special meaning - painted by a friend or relative.  The ceiling in this room looks really low to me for some reason.

I only like the rug & the fact that there is a fireplace....I don't care for anything else.

I would prefer two or three larger paintings on the wall rather than all those smaller ones grouped together.  Also I love the rug but am not a fan of the couches.  The room needs a redo.

That ceiling looks like it's about 5ft high.  The pictures just emphasise it.  Horrible room.

Re: Gilded Frames Around a Mantel

The ceiling is to low for those pictures. To me the room is sterile and cold feeling. It doesn't come to life.
