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.
I was surprised to see this well-worn fireplace mantel repurposed as a headboard. it′s a really great idea that Mike and I are going to have to consider. The look you create will depend on the mantel you find. It could be a huge old oak surround antique cast iron or a brightly painted contemporary design.
For the money nothing equals the impact you get from paint. In this case chocolate suede paint with a red border gives the impression of a substantial and scrumptious headboard in the thriftiest possible manner. Ralph Lauren′s line of suede paints is worth checking out.
Allow the patterned headboard to be the star of the bedscape. Keep the duvet and shams solid and with minimal detailing like this hotel-style bedding and use a minimal amount of coordinating throw pillows. Coordinate with a bed skirt or a bed platform to create continuity. Pay attention to the way the pattern relates to the headboard′s shape. Here the vertical stripes emphasize the point at the top of the headboard. Note the way the stripes on the bed skirt and the headboard align.
