I know this isn't the answer you probably want, but I agree with others, it sounds like such a unique, amazing piece. If you're going to have it for awhile, why not invest in framing it? Yes, it will be expensive up front, but you won't regret it and you'll know that the poster is protected and won't get ruined over time/through moves. Especially at this time of year, stores like a.c. moore, joanne's, and other big box craft stores have HUGE framing sales. In fact, i just printed out a 70% off coupon for custom framing this morning. Just keep your eyes posted and go into these stores during a quiet time (ok, maybe not right before xmas) to pick out framing and mat options that can make it affordable. Save that info, wait for the coupon and then go for it. There are a lot of options and if you keep it simple it might just be affordable enough! Good luck!

i like the magnetic curtain rod idea. the privacy film is great (especially the removable kind, since you're a renter), but there will be times where you want to see who is outside your door. The film will just let you see a shape of the person outside, so the curtain may be the best solution for your problem.

Gorgeous! Well-loved and lived-in. I love the collection of finds and how you've incorporated them into your every day life. Any idea of where the kitchen roller blinds came from? I'm looking for something exactly like that -- very simple, non-intrusive and cordless. Would love to know the source! Thanks for sharing your lovely home.

It looks like you have a cozy spot there now, but I can see why you want a rug. I would recommend something mid-range in color, between light and dark (darker than your carpet, lighter than the wall). My feeling is that the brown Ikea rug will be a little heavy, and do what you don't want, which is to make the room feel dark. I think you do need a little texture/pattern in the room for some visual interest and to create that cozy feeling. I 2nd Overstock, and maybe something like the "Alexa Chevron Rug" in brown/cream, or if that's too modern for you, even a simple sisal or a jute rug could give you some texture/cozy-factor and can be found at good prices. Good luck!
