The first thing you might notice is I've added a wood border to the shark print. Thanks to great advice from a helpful commenter, hopelesshade, I realized binder clips on rice paper might not be the best long-term solution in terms of preserving the print. After a little brainstorming, Tim and I headed to Home Depot and bought thin strips of wood (from the moulding section) for $.69 a foot - $15 total. We cut four strips down to size, sandwiched the rice paper between them, then clipped back on the binder clips.
Change number two was the addition of a fiddle leaf fig tree (from craig's list for $40) and a rug (from craig's list a few months ago for $20).
Fun facts: This was Tim and my first trip to Ikea as a married couple! How did I get him there? Nerd alert. I choose Ikea as an outing for my birthday this weekend. Don't worry, I'll never change.
Shall we indulge in some before and afters? I think so.

Anyone else out there obsessively changing the decorations in one of your rooms?
