Our Master Bedroom-After

I've been on a quest to incorporate color into our room.  Our room is small, or cozy as some would say. The high ceilings definitely help the space feel bigger than it actually is.  These ceilings are one of, or the main reason we bought our house. We had the beams stained a darker tone a few years back. I added pillows, a bench, and some accessories.
Here's a good view of our upholstered headboard and Ikea Hopen nightstand fix-up.
My nightstand with our spray painted trays.  The bowls you see there were actually my cousin's wedding favors. Her husband is an incredible artist who makes the most beautiful pottery.  Visit his shop at RM Pottery. 
My husband's night stand. I found that little bird at the Dollar Tree and spray painted it white.
Here's a head on view of our bed. I can't get any farther away from this point, remember my tiny/cozy room.
This is our west facing wall where we enter our room.  The closet is the master closet, hence the need for the Ikea Pax Wardrobe. The photographs were taken by me in Budapest. The first one is St. Stephen's Cathedral and the second one is the view of Buda from Pest (I think). If you look closely, you will see my husband.  No, not the giant burly statue, the one behind, imitating the statue. I absolutely love this picture.
So just a little reminder of what our room looked like before.
Grey overload
and now
What do you think?  I may eventually want to replace the quilt/cover, but we love the amount of warmth it provides. Being in South Florida something light is important, even with our air going full blast. It's starting to look a little worn.  Let's see what happens.

I love your bedroom makeover! I just noticed you follow my blog, I feel so special since you are my first follower. Funny how I am trying to figure out if what upholstered bed with nailhead trim. Yours looks amazing though =) I waver between something simple and classic like yours with something bold or patterned. So many decisions.
