Articles like this are needed by me. I have no decor sense at all. I will look for a oval rug for under the dining table, don’t want a fringe on it, but what colours ? We have to see what’s on offer? Thank you for your suggestions.

Yes, suancol......I'm the same...! I do take snaps around my home and garden and find that studying the photos afterwards lets me see what might need changing round. It's as though I see it with fresh eyes when it's on my screen....... :-)
