Repeat the pattern on twin or triplet beds. Here an electric paisley pattern repeated on three beds and window treatments enlivens the room. Use remnants for a unique patchwork design. Creative decorator Cherie Marcel didn′t let her fabric samples go to waste; instead she used them to fashion a fabulous headboard.
I′m advocating breaking one of my design rules. Well I don′t really believe in strict design rules but generally I try to keep big investment pieces (like beds) neutral solid and classic and bring in prints patterns bolder colors and trendy fabrics via less permanent items like rugs throw pillows duvet covers and window treatments. However these gorgeous patterned headboards have been screaming for my attention and I cannot ignore them any longer. Would you sleep beneath a patterned headboard? If so what kind of textile or pattern would you use? Let me know in the Comments section!
If you use a rug as a headboard your options are nearly endless. Geometric floral striped shaggy needlepoint neutral — the sky′s the limit. There are a couple of caveats. Make sure the rug is at least as wide as your mattress; it could even be wide enough to frame your nightstands. But beware of rugs that are narrower than your bed as they′ll end up looking off — the headboard version of high-water pants. Before buying rugs online be sure to check the return policy. The rug the UPS guy drops off at the door may differ from what you thought you were getting.
