Novice XSD namespace question

Novice XSD namespace question

I have an xsd I am trying to link up to an xml so the xml content will be validated (see below).  I am having trouble with namespaces.   If you attempt to validate as is, it fails stating on the brushes element and the only way I can get it to work is to undeclare the default namespace on the xml root element.  So I think I have a namespace conflict between the brushes element in the xsd and the brushes element in the xml.  Can't figure out why that is.  Any explanation is much appreciated.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" ?>
<xs:schema xmlns:xs=""
  <xs:element name="root">
        <xs:element name="brushes">
              <xs:element name="brush" minOccurs="0" maxOccurs="unbounded">
                  <xs:attribute name="id" type="xs:string" use="required"></xs:attribute>
                  <xs:attribute name="type" use="required">
                      <xs:restriction base="xs:string">
                        <xs:pattern value="image|video"></xs:pattern>
                  <xs:attribute name="uri" type="xs:string"></xs:attribute>
         <xs:element name="theme_references">
              <xs:element name="theme_reference" minOccurs="0" maxOccurs="unbounded">
                  <xs:attribute name="id" type="xs:string" use="required"></xs:attribute>
                  <xs:attribute name="icon_brush" type="xs:string" use="required"></xs:attribute>
                  <xs:attribute name="theme_uri" type="xs:string" use="required"></xs:attribute>

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<root xmlns="mynamespace"
      xsi:schemaLocation="mynamespace theme_references.xsd">
    <brush id="alphabet_icon" type="image" uri="content\themes\alphabet\images\A.png"></brush>
    <theme_reference id="alphabet" icon_brush="alphabet_icon" theme_uri="content\themes\alphabet\alphabet.xml"></theme_reference>
