Designer Notes:
Jessica,
It has been SO FUN working on your "Design Challenge"!  After I emailed with you and found out that you do not have any resources near you { ie, Havertys, Ashley, Potterybarn etc }, I just wanted to present you with some "Inspiration Pieces".  I also wanted to keep in mind, trying to incorporate some of the pieces you already have into the Design of your Space as a whole as we are a Nation "Keeping a Budget" in mind.  I graduated in 1992 { YIKES!  My age is showing } with my Interior Design Degree, and back then we did everything on paper, so I'm a bit "Old School" and have done my floor plan on paper, so please excuse :0)
From your photos, I felt I could come up with a plan incorporating your paint color with no problem.  I think your paint is a beautiful, "Earthy" Golden tone...that, I LOVE!  Earthy colors are "Timeless", so your Gold and Chocolate is PERFECT!  I need to keep this "Somewhat" brief due to space, so just a few Highlights...
My plan incorporates your current Headboard, the drawer dresser, the 2 door 'armoire', your Potterybarn Bench Knockoff {well done Girlfriend!}, and your rocker...all these just moved around a bit.  The "Reading Nook" was the Focus of the plan, so I have spent most of my "Thoughts" on that area, but still trying to marry that space to the overall room.  A little "Trick" I have used MANY TIMES...because its ALWAYS a HIT, is using an area rug hung on the wall as a "Tapestry" might be used { BUT WAY less expensive, YaaHoo! }.  You can find pretty awesome rugs at Lowes, Home Depot, Sam's, Bed Bath and Beyond, even Big Lots!  I would find one to COVER that Troublesome Door you do not use.  This will help make that door just DISAPPEAR!  I’ve shown a few different chair styles and colors that will work in easily, size and color...keeping those colors "Earthy".  You could go with either a smaller round table or, space willing, a longer "Console" type table.  The rest is pretty easily layed out....The Bedding is a great way to unite the reading nook to the bed area.  The window treatments should be a compliment  to the rest of the space, so those are Simple and Clean in design and color.  If you need to help pull a color together, decorative pillows and accessories are the Finishing touches.  You can see in the Space rendering, I have moved your 2 door armoire below the Plasma tv...it needs to be "anchored" with a piece below.  Girlfriend...I WISH I had UNLIMITED space, but I don't { Boo! }, but I HOPE you will find some "Inspiration" through the Plan and Pictures I have come up with.
OK you Decorating Diva...have FUN !!!

A few components can influence the bank advance rates a man can get, comprehending what can influence somebody's odds of getting aggressive rates is the main thing you have to know. Maybe the most critical terms to comprehend with respect to bank credit rates are either settled or variable yearly rate or APR. payday loans

The objective is to get another advance that is sufficiently substantial to pay off the various obligations. Contingent upon the span of the obligation stack, this might be a probability. Exchanging unsecured obligation that is noncollectable for secured obligation that includes the danger of losing your insurance is not generally a shrewd move. auto title loans chicago
