I like the cluttered, aged and cosy interior of this room. I'd like my living room set to reflect this, making it look like the characters have lived there a long time and have accumulated stuff over many years. I really like that style of rug.
Herbs like rosemary, lemon grass & garlic chives can feature as the star attraction in large pots. Partner with a cascading plant like variegated mother of herbs, sweet potato vine or licorice vine. Should help with mosquitos as well.
