Sweet Dreams In Chocolate

Hello Everyone!
Last week I found this chocolate brown quilt set at
Marshalls and on a whim bought it for the guest room.
I figured it would blend well with the gold and red I
already had in the room. When we move I will probably
keep it and mix it with a more neutral palette. Dark brown
is one of those versatile colors that works well with anything.
Join me for a tour of the guest room.

Gold walls, chocolate bedding and red pillows work together. A console table holds family photos and a lamp. It had red striped bedding before and it was time to change it. An iron scroll shelf displays accessories. This metal box may be the starting point for the future room. The night stand is nice to have for guests. Leopard prints are my favorite accent. A bench holds more pillows. It came with 4 shams and 2 pillows. The rest I already had. The drapes were also at Marshalls and are a good match. Here is one of the brown pillows that came with the set.
I had the red flower so I pinned it on to jazz it up.
Thanks for coming by! I always enjoy your visits.
Have a wonderful week!

What a gorgeous guest room, Melissa! I am very fond of chocolate brown and red....I have chocolate brown drapes and a red quilt in my bedroom. I really like the Paris tin and the flower you pinned to the pillow!

Sonya@Beyond the Screen Door said...

So pretty and warm! I'm kind of partial to red and brown together. What a delightful room, Melissa! I'd say it's a keeper, too.

Lakeshore Cottage Living said...

Oh that is so pretty! I would love to come and take a looooong rest in that bed.

Diane Writes said...

I find brown and pink as a perfect match. Black also goes well with pink! I love the presence of the family pictures on the side table. In my country, we love displaying pictures of family members too. And your last piece, it's my first time to see a flower attached to a pillow! It's so unique and creative of you!

Richella said...

Oh, Melissa, who wouldn't want to come visit you? What a beautiful guest room!

I like the chocolate brown! You've done a good job of making it work with things you already had--and you could go lots of different directions after you move. It'll be fun to follow along on your moving adventure. I just wish I could meet you in person while you're in North Carolina!

Liz said...

Emelia DiCarlo said...

Hi Melissa, Just gorgeous, you have such a talent for seeing the complete vision of a room. I love the brown, it's rich and is a good background for your regal reds and accents. I can also see you using it in your future home with a rich Tiffany Blue! I appreciate you mentioning where you made your purchases….all of the blog ladies are so talented and kind. I find I am learning so much about decor and everyday inspiration to keep positive, thank you, hugs, Emelia.

Abramyan Avenue said...

Absolutely beautiful! Brown is one of my favorite colors. I'm trying to convince my daughter to let me do her room in violet and brown.
Anyway, love, love, love the new quilt set! It's gorgeous!

I love browns and taupes but for some reason I don't use them. I had considered them for my office and then went deep red. I think because it is just so small I was afraid to experiment. Your's is gorgeous! Plus it was attached right to the kitchen..so...

Your home is lovely!

I love all the pillows on the bed. My hubby always wonders why I put so many on the beds and the couch but I love them.

Very pretty.

Very pretty. I'm ready for a new set in my guest room. I just love brown. It's one of my favorite colors!

Sue (Someone's Mom) said...

I had chocolate brown bedding in our master bedroom all winter and I love it. I used seafoam/aqua with mine but I may change that when I bring it back out. It is such a rich color and I think your room looks so pretty with all the browns and deep reds. I love the idea of pinning the flower on the pillow.

kara@elements-interiors.net said...

SO GORGEOUS! Love the pinned on flower! Drop DEAD!

Bringing Pretty Back said...

That chocolate brown is so rich looking! I love how you added the pin to the pillow!!!! I see so many GORGEOUS broaches at antique stores and love them but I do not wear them and have wanted to buy them for SOMETHING! That's it! I can pin them to decorative pillows! Why didn't I think of that!?
Have a pretty day!
