Erin Wheeler of Sunny Circle Studio's gorgeous living room is giving us a serious case of envy. We love how the mid-century furniture and bright aesthetic give it a fresh look with just the right amount of nostalgia. And while there's a lot to obsess about here — from the inviting gray color scheme to the bubbly details — it's the patterned rug that's really grabbing our attention. A large area rug has the power to make or break decor, and this one provides the perfect dose of personality. If your current space feels like it's missing something, but you can't quite put your finger on it, then it might be time to add a new floor accessory to the mix. This one could be it.
