A New Rug: Help!

Today the UPS man brought this 5×8, wool, Safavieh rug. I got it for a steal from everyone’s favorite rug dealer, Overstock.com. BUT, I don’t know if it’s going to work. So after looking at the pictures, please give your honest opinion, and possibly suggestions if you have any.

***Special Note To The Husband*** Calm Down!!!

Here is a view from the front hall. This room is to the left, when coming in the front door.

What looks gray, is gray, but was described as beige online.

As I said in the caption above, the beige turns out to be gray. A gray with brown undertones. I’m a bit concerned about the gray. Also, there will be a sofa (probably white, slip-covered) someday across from the chairs. And a glass coffee table. Here is a view from where the sofa will be:

Looking towards the dining room.

Now, remember I can use other pillows, and art and accessories to pull everything together. Or someone could. It remains to be seen, if I am that person. 🙂 One of the things I like about this rug are the medallions. To me, they help to bring in the traditional motif on the fireplace.

Pretty!

Please keep in mind, the rug in the dining room:

I love it! One of my best bargains ever. 9x12 cotton dhurrie for $170!!!

And the wall color in the dining room:

I will probably re-paint, but intend to use a nearly identical color.

I do think this rug does a great job of pulling the colors from the dining room into the living room. I am slightly concerned about this painting (which may be stolen by the husband for his office):

I love, the blue and green, but maybe the green is just one color too many for the room?

If the husband does steal my painting, I could move this painting into the living room:

Okay people, what do you think? My friend/design consultant is MIA, so help me out please!
