There's also the issue of the radiator being directly in front of the window and my fire-paranoia complicating the curtain issue.
However, here a couple of glances at my room now - and then I'm going to send you out shopping for me as my brain is having a block thanks to all those aforementioned issues.
The curtains. These hung in my old guest room - and looked much better there. Narrow window, pooling on the floor, no off-center radiator in front of the window. Ah, well. Curtains are expensive and as I can't really close the curtains or put another panel in the center (and don't tell me the radiator will be fine and the curtains won't spontaneously ignite - I won't believe you!) - new drapes are not really possible. Any other ideas? Scarf across the top? Valence over the top - though I hate valences - so find me one that works!
And the bed portion of the room. The frames on the wall are leaving. There was a third one and it fell. I'm trying to avoid putting nails in the wall - so - I'm thinking - some of that vinyl wall art that's all the rage now. Etsy search "vinyl wall decal" if you don't know what I'm talking about. I haven't found anything I'm in love with yet though. So - your job: find me wall art to go in that corner and tell me where to put it (head of bed, side wall, on the slanty attic ceiling above, etc.)
Second thing for this corner. Throw pillows for me bed that coordinate but are not matchy-matchy.
Third thing: New bedside table that will provide adequate bedside storage for lamp, book, laptop, and odds and ends but that doesn't have a crooked leg and doesn't look like that and would hopefully hide that tangle of electrical cords.
Also - an area rug to put down to cover the odd-colored/stained carpet would be awesome.
I've kind of got a butterfly with reds, browns, greens, and golds going on. Black accents.
On a positive note -my room did come with this awesome dresser and I do like how I've decorated the top of it:
It's Charlie, Moe, and Blanche! I do love these ducks. Even though they don't match my room. . .
Now, off you go. Come back with links to fabulous things that I can buy to add to my room.
