Sometimes a bed placed in the center of a room takes up too much space or just doesn′t look right — but simply shoving the bed into a corner can be awkward too. Designer Carla Aston came up with a great solution while designing a teenager′s room for a show house: Customized dual headboards on an upholstered frame keep the bed tucked neatly and comfortably in the corner while creating a casual lounge-style space.
When is a headboard not a headboard? When it′s a wall between two windows! This is a marvelous solution in a small room where a more traditional bed can easily prove overwhelming. Wrapping the space in wallpaper makes it feel like a big warm hug but you could accomplish a similarly comfy look by using wallpaper just over the bed. By the way (I am jumping on my soapbox here) wallpaper constantly cycles in and out of fashion. Do not let that dictate whether or not you use it. It is only "out" if you are not a wallpaper person and it is only "in" if you are.
A touch of Normandy. You don’t have to scrap your wooden headboard to get a fabric feel. Add to it like the design team responsible for this Francophile bedroom did. A custom valance allows yards of luxurious fabrics to flow gracefully from the ceiling to the floor behind an existing headboard giving the piece a whole new inviting look.
