A very short while after I shared the pictures of my master bedroom I found a wonderful old wicker chair (for an absolute steal of a deal!) to cozy up the fireplace in my bedroom, as so many of you had suggested. It has the perfect combination of old paint, slightly weathered but not too tattered, and quaint charm. I re-covered the seat cushion and added a white cutwork feather bed pillow to add some softness to the back of the chair.
Now the area isn't so bare, and I have a spot to sit...and it looks inviting and charming and warm and welcoming. Oh, and I also added an old (and VERY heavy) mirror to the mantle area for some added personality, although I am still not sure I will keep it up there.
I am very happy with my new-to-me old chair and I am so glad you recommended adding one to this corner of my bedroom!
