My New Sunroom

Well, we have completed our first project in our new house and it turned out just like I was wanting it. My sunroom is my favorite room in the house because it is so bright and sunny and I have always wanted one. The previous owner's had a dog that chewed the window trim and a big hole in the wall, so we added beadboard 6ft. high and replaced the trim with 1x4's and used a 1x4 at the top and bottom of the beadboard to give it a casual barnlike feel. I painted the beadboard Creamy White (Behr) and the top Off White (Behr) but I did have that color darkened a little when it came out too light. I have no furniture in there yet, but I was thinking of some comfy, but outdoor type furniture. Any suggestions?

I decided to hang my collection of barn stars on this large wall
