I've learned over the past couple of years that even though I do feel insanely unsettled when things aren't done the way I'd like for them to be, it's not worth the money to buy something cheap to just fill the space. Since I moved into the house over 8 months ago (wow, the time has flown by!) I've really made an effort to take my time and only buy things that I love. Unfortunately, that means that I don't have one single room looking the way I ultimately envision it. In case you haven't noticed, patience isn't one of my strong points. :-)
The most important rooms in my home are the bedroom and living room. I spend the most time in the living room, but I also want my bedroom to feel welcoming and relaxing so I can calm down from the day and get a good nights sleep. I was browsing Google and I came across the picture below:
I would love to have a little nook in the bedroom with a chair and ottoman like this. Add in a comfy throw and I would probably spend tons of time there reading books and magazines.
What do you guys think? Do you use the chair if you have one in your bedroom or is it more for decorative purposes? My biggest concern is actually the color. White is what sticks out in my mind as what I would want the most, but we all know white isn't the best option on something that gets used frequently.
I made up a new budget today (that's a whole other post), so I'm not sure when a chair will make it into the house, but I do like looking!
