I'm a little techno challenged, but just go to homedecorators.com, click on rugs, and put Balcony in the search box.

I would just do a very plain seagrass/jute or light neutral single color rug.

You've already got a lot going on in that little room and it needs harmonizing, not further diversification.

I have been looking at a lot of rugs, and I completely agree. When I visualize the ones with patterns, they just seem like too much, so I am going to go with solid. But I am not a big fan of the jute style rugs. I was looking at some solid gray rugs that seem like they might work. There is one I like that is dark gray and thick, almost shag, but not quite.

Is that something that you think would work? Or should I stick with lighter gray or beige?

It's a cool room. I would definitely play up the symmetry of the shape and ceiling detailing with lighting and a balanced, extensive art display. Keep it a little bit formal but very comfortable and welcoming, which sounds contradictory but absolutely can be done.

You're lucky to have a great foundation to work with.

Does this one work? Safavieh Hand-woven Serenity Marble/ Grey Sisal Rug (8' Square) - Overstock™ Shopping - Great Deals on Safavieh Round/Oval/Square

Its square, like the room, and the gray border would align pretty well with the tray ceiling.

I would not pick that rug for a number of reasons. Again, this is only my viewpoint, but I don't think it goes with the overall feel of the room. While I would agree that I would not like a crazy pattern I do think it needs a little oomph, perhaps a sculpted tone on tone. To me the room has a somewhat romantic feel, and that rug says office to me. It is difficult to judge the colors on the walls but if you take a look at the picture you posted, look at how almost all the pillows on the couch give it a "pop".

I was originally looking at these 2, the colors work for me, but I thought they would be to "busy".

If it were my room I would look for something more tone on tone. I don't know if this color is really right given the color of the coffee table, but this is close to the style I'm picturing:

I do not see either of these in your room. They seem a bit too traditional, although they're classic and you could do worse. I don't like the sisal idea either, as its a bit bland, and hard looking. Also, you can't get those natural fiber rugs wet, so you can't clean them.
Nikitakolata's suggestion has a pattern that echoes the pattern in your drapes.

Don't forget, you can always order the smallest size of any rug to actually see it in your room, and its not so hard to send back.

www.homedecorators.com/P/Balcony-Rug/30/310/I remain adamant for my previous suggestion. I think you need some zip in there.
