Not bad and I liked it enough for a few years like this. But that tweaking-bug struck and I was just ready for a light, less-formal look. I wanted to play off of those old windows and go for a vintage look. Here is the room now:
I saw this gorgeous suzani print fabric a few months ago and knew I had to use it in this room. It's from premier prints also. We get a lot of sun in the mornings so I lined them and was really careful when I cut and sewed them to match up the design so they looked good when they were left drawn.
I wanted a fun rug to tie in the blue, browns and black and was getting frustrated at the prices. I sold my old plum rug on craigslist and found this perfect jute rug at Lowe's for $49!
I'm so happy with it so far. I would love a fun vintage, industrial piece for a coffee table. I'll be scouting the garage sales for that this summer. Maybe an old railroad cart or iron piece like these:
(Costplus "Aiden" table)
So, I guess a decorator's room is never really "done!" It's just too much fun to collect pieces and tweak as the mood strikes! For now, I LOVE it! It feels so much more open and flows better with the rest of the house.
