Hey Barb, glad to see you're back in gear.
I took a stab at it.
The colors might be a bit much for some tastes, but I tried to find the colors that revealed the dinginess of the curtains. Seeing them all "white" seemed to be contradictory to "torn & tattered". I'm imagining them being illuminated with direct sunlight, at a warmer time of day (if I'm reading the light right) ... and the yellowing that can occur from the sun's intensity.
I gave up a bit of the left side of the chair's detail (by choice). I liked seeing more detail in the chair (readily available), but whenever I included more chair detail, it "stole" from the curtains (see Karen's comment @ negative space) and gave my eye competing details to look at, so I opted for the curtains vs. the chair. Similarly, I cropped out the sill and left side, to try and reduce being pulled away away by their competing tonal values, i.e. drawing me away from the main attraction.
Kinda seems like another capture of mundane details just calling for someone to capture them. Those kind of captures seems to originate in the inexplicable visceral, then the challenge of emoting that to others begins.
Diggin' the find.
