Playing House

Enough with the sale talk, I know. Bit by bit, small investment by small investment, we're getting our room finished.

I found a good deal on velvet World Market curtains in "Latte", 2 neutral beige 3x5 rugs on clearance with free shipping from PB Teen, and stalked Craigslist until I found a glider that was good quality and affordable. The glider is a little awkward, visually because it's red gingham and the rest of the room is neutraled out and somewhat modern. I'm not sure how to tone the the "country" look down. Any suggestions?

We already had a mid-century walnut dresser, mid-century teak desk, and 2 Adrian Pearsall end tables (all found over the years on Craigslist). Charlie made the sconces out of ipe wood. My knot painting, still unfinished, hangs above the bed, and an affirmation banner from Secret Holiday hangs on the wall across from the bed.
So far everything else is pretty sparse and I like it that way; we have too few "sparse" spaces in our house. I think I've told Charlie every single night before bedtime that I like our grown up bedroom. It's fun to play house with him.
