My house tour

I love seeing other people's home tours, so I decided to start mine. You know, since it's pretty clean right now. ;) I'm starting with the master bedroom, but to me the pictures don't look as good as it does in real life. Not that it's super designer or anything, but I do think it's prettier than the pictures. I only photographed two walls this time, I'll do the rest later.


As you can see, my current color scheme is dark brown and light blue. The walls are a "custom color" of all the brown paints I had left after painting other areas of my house. :) I like it. It goes really well with the bathroom. I wanted a neutral wall so I could change up the colors of the bed if I wanted. I love red, so I would like to have a red look to interchange with the blue. One of these days...This is my dresser wall. I am eventually going to paint the dresser the dark espresso color of the shelf above it. I have had this shelf for...about six years, and just put it up this year! I love it (a friend's husband made it for me) and wanted just the right spot for it, and wasn't sure what color to paint it. I bought this gorgeous dark brown for my bathroom cabinets (which I haven't painted yet) and used it on this shelf. I LOVE it!!

Here's a close-up of my shelf:



So, if you decide to post pictures of YOUR home, which I think everybody should because I'm nosy and want to see :), please let me know so I can come look.

Wanna decorate my Master Bedroom too? Pretty much all we have is a bed (with no headboard or footboard) and a dresser. Can we say BORING!?

What is the name of the brown paint that you used on the shelf? I've been scheming to paint our bathroom cabinets brown too... they're currently pretty putrid! Serious!

Cute! I really like that color of brown. I'm thinking of doing something like that for the nursery...some way to keep it either boy or girl. I'll have to bounce some ideas off of you!

I love that you did this! I love looking at other people's homes and adore your bedspread!!! I too decorate using the dark woods,
my accent colors are bronze, copper, golds, metallics with maroon,rust and moss green. OK, I should just take some pics.
I'm not designer but the things I have make me happy.
