e-design plan: boys bathroom

a look at the idea board for the design plan of a bathroom that i recently worked on. my client's upstairs bathroom is in dire need of some updating....they wanted something timeless and elegant, since it will be the bathroom used for guest, but also needed the bathroom to have some color and whimsy, since it will mostly be used for their two boys. (the husband and wife have different styles--she likes more modern and simple lines, and he likes things a little more ornate. the vanity has the clean lines for her, and the mirrors add some curves for him.)

on the menu:
herringbone carrara marble floors, a running bond pattern on the walls, a dark wood vanity cabinet, hexagonal tile inset into custom shelving in the shower/tub area, roman shades in a graphic navy and green fabric, soft blue walls, and a color blocked linen shower curtain. it will be a fun and sophisticated space when it is all done!

below are a few of the mock-ups that i pulled together to help my client decide which direction to 
take for the mirror and the vanity lighting:

here is a look at the window fabric and shower curtain trim and linen:
the fabric is a spoonflower fabric, the linen is from gray line linen, and the ribbon is from ribbon connections.
this bathroom remodel is about get underway, and i will make sure my client sends me pictures of the completed room! i am really looking forward to seeing how it all looks once it is pulled together.
