My guest bedroom transformed into a media room

The other day I realized I needed a project. Nothing too time-consuming because I have some work coming up on the house I want to tackle but something to tide me over until then. An idea came to mind, and luckily my husband was totally on board. Our guest bedroom never gets used, except for a place for cats to nap. It seemed like a complete waste of a room. We have 2 TVs in the house - one in the living room and one in our bedroom. Watching a movie in the bedroom meant one of us falling asleep within 5 minutes, and watching in the living room meant we'd each take a couch. Neither one an ideal situation. So we turned the rather small guest bedroom (10'x8.5') into a media room. Every piece I used in the space was either already there, taken from other rooms or was pulled out of our 3rd floor storage room. And we LOVE IT!!! Here is what the bedroom looked before the transformation:

And here is what it looks like now. (Resource list at the end). 

From trips to Mexico: wool rug on floor, everything on walls but large canvas, all pillows
Vintage: pots on coffee table, vases on white shelving, blanket on sofa, fabric used as curtains, stereo cabinet used as TV stand
Sectional sofa: Furniture Maison
Art over sofa: Madame Clamour by Villa Betula
Pendant light: Wunderkammer 
Coffee table: built by my husband
Plant pot: Ikea
Table lamp: semi-built/semi-restored by a friend
Walls: Farrow & Ball Inchyra Blue (hallway wallpaper = Tourbillon)
Featuring 3 of the herd: Phoebe, Mimin and Felix :)

You made the room look bigger and better. Great work, Kim. You even got a "Pets on Furniture" picture in there for us. Cool!

Nicely done!
I imagine the cats sauntering around the corner and into the room for the first time...and....'what the f.....?!!' : )
May the pom pom tassles still be dangling.
