Good Questions: What To Do With This Large Bedoom Space?

AT, The bedroom is big, and came with the carpet and window treatments. We painted. I don't love either the carpet or the window treatments, but can't really afford to change them now. In the winter I use a chocolate brown bedspread instead of the white one, which I got in an attempt make the room feel more summery. Also, the big painting was a gift from my mother's boyfriend and we put it up because it was free and my husband liked it better than a blank wall, but honestly it depresses me and I want to lose it. . .

. . .I want to get a comfy chair with arms and an ottoman, or perhaps even a chaise. I want someplace other than the bed to sit and read. I have kids so it can't be too impractical. I've been looking on craigslist haven't found anything good. I was thinking perhaps a neutral colored chair/ottoman and zebra rug (like this one from Target)? I need help finding an affordable chair.

I live in Sacramento and in a house not an apartment, and my house is more traditional (as that was the style of the free, hand-me down furniture that I have received) but I try to keep it uncluttered and I really like colors. I am open to suggestions. Thanks, Kim
