Dear AT,

I feel I NEED an advice or two from you and our fellow AT'ers.

I just redecorated my son's nursery into a playroom and moved this Doutalier custom rocker out of it.

I'd really hate to get rid of it altogether, and I am trying to incorporate it into our home still.

I just freed one of the corners in our dining room and I am trying to create a little reading nook.

It is not only dining, but rather office/general hang out room and the opposite wall has two huge bookcases, so it would easy just to grab a book and enjoy it right there...

Oh, and it is rental, and budget-wise I also should stay very light.

So my questions areā€¦ which accents I should add to bring it all together?

A little side table in similar wood stain as the chair?

And another lamp on it with orange shadow? And maybe an accent pillow in orange as well?

Also, I do want to paint the wall behind the chair in some kind of coffee and milk color, but plan to leave two longer and much taller walls white, as this room is pretty dim lit during a day.

Thanks! Marina
