@Muffy St John I know you're right. I just keep imagining the space empty... with miles of high-pile emerald green carpet.

Any ideas for a couch color to build off of? Our current couch will be going in the reading room. I can't decided if I should go light or dark.

Thank you all for the suggestions! I actually have spoken to the landlord since I submitted this query to Apartment Therapy, and he was delighted to inform me that there is "lovely hardwood" beneath the carpet... Of course I asked how I could make that mine, and he informed me that that was not possible - the carpet is there to provide sound insulation for the neighbors below. The green carpet is here to stay. I know, deep sigh.

@sarahbou, I actually was incredibly inspired by that chartreuse post! I love the idea of it against that awful carpet, but such a bright color makes me a little nervous. We'll see.
