A Bedroom Makeover

A few weeks ago a good friend of mine showed me her and her husband's bedroom and the space was AMAZING. She had indicated that she was interested in redesigning it a bit, so instantly my mind was swirling with ideas. It has high sloped ceiling with many windows and fabulous built in closets and dressers. Not only that. it leads into a gorgeous, spacious and dramatic bathroom with a claw foot tub, window surround and charming Greco inspired mosaic tiling throughout.

Long story short I'm helping them redesign their space. Sadly I don't have high tech software to recreate the images I have in my head, but I do have pic collage and I created a few designs for them to work with. Yes I'm aware scale isn't perfect, but you get the general idea.

Here's the first design I created, it was in my head even before she asked me to help...

Contestant number 2 would you please step down...

I love the idea of a colorful mirror on a window as seen in the image above...something fresh and unexpected. I also adore the affordable bedding designed by my good friend, Jill Sorensen of LiveLikeYou.

The last design is a little brighter and lighter...

The end result will probably be a mixture of these along with a few items/elements they've chosen already. So, which one would you all choose?

What would you choose?

I plan on painting my old mirror a bold color to match the bathroom in the condo better. Only issue is I can't seem to decide what color. Here's the space with the colorful shower curtain included...

Here's another close up via instagram...

The mirror is just too shabby chic for the space, so I'm thinking one of these colors...

Sapphire (I'm leaning toward this)

So, which would you all choose? I know, I know...there are many more important things in life, but hey a little painting distraction for me at 35 weeks pregnant is welcome.
