Chocolate and Aqua

My mom is doing a makeover of the inside of her house and she put me in charge of the master bedroom and bathroom. I decided to do everything in chocolate brown and aqua. We are painting the two shorter walls of her bedroom chocolate brown and the two longer walls and ceiling aqua. The walls with aqua will also have stripes of a couples shades darker of the aqua. I have ordered the bedding so far along with purchasing curtains. I made letters that spell out the word dream and painted and decoupaged them to match the room as well, here are some before pics of the letters:

I have done more to those letters since taking those pics. Today I also came across a very old and worn out shelved hutch/bookcase. I bleached it, and have painted the back of the shelves aqua and am painting the outside of the unit chocolate brown. I have already stained a few unfinished corner shelves and a longer shelf I bought as well. They will display the few vases/glass containers I have found that match the color scheme of the room as well.
Here is the bedding that was purchased:

I am also going to attempt to make my own headboard with a huge piece of foam-board and fabric to match as well. As I get more pictures, I will post them..and of course I will have before and after pictures….I LOVE interior decorating!!!
