Window options ...

I have been working on my DIY mud room wall this week and the whole time I am working I see the window to my left.  Yes, lonely little window ... I see you there asking for love!

My vision for this window includes a roman shade.  I spotted that amazing picture above on Pinterest while I was pulling inspiration pictures for the room and it has stuck with me.  If it is to be a roman shade it must include a monogram.

As I have been working on the room I realize that the space above the window will need some love.  Yes, the wall will be covered in the amazing Rifle Paper Co. wallpaper, but as you know I will still want to take it to the next level.  

I see a pelmet ... and based on the fact that the window will be a white shade with green trim and a matching green monogram I think the pelmet needs to be made of one of the fabrics I have chosen for the space.  I had to make adjustments to the fabrics once the amazing Emily McCarthy for Cotton + Quill fabrics arrived and the green was richer than I had planned for.  But please note ... richer is GOOD!!!  

Here are my pictures I have pulled for your vote ... 

Option 1 ... matching pelmet with cut out base and trim

Option 2 ... large plain pelmet in printed fabric

Option 3 ... shaped pelmet in printed fabric with to die for trim

Option 4 ... plain pelmet with monogram and trim on roman shade in printed green fabric

What are your thoughts?  I already have what I think is the best option chosen but I can be easily swayed so I would love your feedback.  And feel free to combine pieces of each option to make an even better plan for me.  I am totally open to anything fabulous!  And please do comment ... I have a little happy set aside for the most convincing comment and yes, it is a Lilly for Target sursie!

I had to make sure you didn't fall asleep or move on to another more exciting blog and post.

I can't wait to hear your thoughts and tune in tomorrow for week 4 of the One Room Challenge.  

Did I just type 4?  YIKES!!!
