So, I more or less went with my own interpretation of the inspiration photo. (disclaimer: I love the lines of our current desk and was seriously considering painting it a glossy black........but I didn't have the heart to slap paint on its' gorgeous cherry finish, so it's going to stay this way.) Anyway, I'm pretty pleased with how the room turned out:
My attempt to "chic-up" the futon Mr. FC refuses to get rid of:
Glad I took pictures because this desk is never going to look this clean again...........Being the neurotic perfectionist that I am though, some issues:
-Mr. FC is pretty adamant about keeping his manly, comfy black desk chair. I, however, am coveting this ridiculously-expensive-uncomfortable-but-oh-so-chic chair. Lumbar support be damned, I WILL own this chair or something similar ;o)
-Also, I'm not totally in love with the rug. What do you think? Is the print too busy-looking for the small space? Should I go with a classic, solid ivory shag rug instead?
