Perfect Choice for Boy's Shades

Last week, I asked readers to cast their votes on Instagram and Facebook about their favorite fabric selection for roman shades for my son's bedroom.  (Recall here). 

Today, I'm revealing my selection:

Choice #3!

 Here's my thought process behind the decision:

I'm usually all about color!  (For proof, visit some of the rooms in my house).  Initially, I loved that the multi-colored fabric had all of the colors from the vintage map wallpaper.  But it felt too childish for me.  My son is seven now, but I wanted something that felt a bit more grown up and mature. 

I toyed back and forth between option 2 and 3.  I loved the light linen feeling to option 2.  It appropriately tied in the beige and grey tones in both papers.  But, in the end, the last choice seemed to make the same connection in a more bold and masculine way.  The fabric is going to sit directly on top of the vintage map paper and choice #3 seemed to represent itself the best! 

I have been on a massive house project frenzy the last few weeks.  I have an exciting event happening at my house at the end of May and I'm eagerly trying to prepare. 

I've been making over my son and daughter's rooms (some sneak peaks available on instagram). 

Check back soon for more updates on these projects!
