I've had some wins this week:
I found someone to reupholster the chair going into the space for a great price and THEN I found gorgeous leopard fabric at Hobby Lobby to cover it on clearance for $8/yard! The other stuff I was seeing was easily $20/yard and I needed 9!
In a perfect world, a gorgeous chandy would go over this space, but there is no central air in the cottage (just wall units) and we need the fan for added flow.
I would normally choose the white so you hopefully don't even notice it much ('cause ceiling fan). But the ceilings are tall and I feel like I need something to punctuate it-- especially with so many dark colors (green sofa, black and white rug, leopard chair) on the ground. The before shows the entire space again for reference:
I am now planning on adding some pretty lighting in another area though. I have a little trick up my sleeve for lighting them that doesn't require hard-wiring so that makes it easy and renter friendly.
