Show Us Where You Live Friday -- Master Bedroom Edition

It's master bedroom week on Kelly's Show Us Where You Live Friday! I really like our master bedroom. I redid it last year, and I'm happy with the way it turned out. I love brown and blue, and I don't have any blue anywhere else in my house, so I figured the master bedroom would be a great place to try out this color scheme! :o)
As you can see the walls are dark chocolate brown. I'm fond of dark walls, especially in bedrooms. I think it gives a room a cozy, cocoon-like feel. We added the chandelier for a little drama (because super dark walls aren't dramatic at all). I love a chandelier in a bedroom!

The headboard on the bed is pretty tall -- too tall to hang any kind of art over the bed. I felt like the bed really needed something over it though, so we draped this fabric and I really like the look it created. I've always been a big fan of canopy beds, but our room is obviously way too small and the ceilings are no where near tall enough for a canopy bed. I feel like the fabric kind of gives me a canopy "feel" without a canopy. At least that's what I tell myself! ;o)

This is the little "reading corner." We never really use the chair to sit on, but we pile all of the decorative pillows in it at night so it's good for something at least!
I'm a big fan of pillows. I could have added lots more, but I tried to be somewhat sensible about it. After all I do make the bed up everyday so I didn't want too many pillows.

Here you can see our dresser and our window.
I really love the brown lampshades. They kind of have a golden hue when turned on, but when the lights are off, they're chocolate brown -- almost the exact color of the walls.So, that's our master bedroom! Thanks for stopping by! We'd love to have you back! Let me know you looked, so I can make sure I see your bedroom too :o)

Your bedroom is so pretty; I love blue and brown together, too! And I love canopy beds. Also, I don't know if you read my last post but I cannot figure out how to get the "about me" to show up on the blog. Peyton said it might be because both of us are contributers....how did you get yours to work??

Oh I just LOVE it! I actually have browns and blues in my guest room and am about to paint the wall chocolate brown! I am so glad to get a glimpse of what it might look like. Where did you get your bed spread?

LOVE your bedding colors! I think my walls are the same color as yours... love them!

So jealous of your chandelier... I wanted one in mine so bad but here in Vegas you simply must have a ceiling fan to sleep good. :)

I think the dark walls look great! Love everything about your room! :)

Great colors... I wish I could have a chandelier, but instead we "cannot live without a ceiling fan." Thanks for sharing your space!!
