Go bold and go for height — dynamic fabrics and exaggerated verticality on a headboard can change the entire feeling of a room. These brilliant textiles add to the Moroccan style of this home and the wall behind them painted up to chair-rail height tricks the eye distorting how we perceive the colors and proportions. Extend the headboard to new heights to show off a beautiful fabric on it and your shams. It would have been a design travesty not to show off this beautiful suzani fabric.
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.
This headboard most certainly had to be custom. Look how its shape fits between the oval windows aligning perfectly and making a beautiful statement in this bedroom design. Reclaimed shutters placed behind a bed add to the romantic charm of this bedroom. Now I wouldn′t have thought of doing this! A beautifully worn mantel becomes a truly unique headboard. Here a collection of worn pieces of wood are assembled in a line creating a very artistic headboard inspiring an organic and natural looking bedroom design.
My 10-year-old grandson who is hovering over my shoulder as I write this has tasked me with re-creating this headboard for his bedroom. And can you blame him? If your youngster feels the same and you want to accomplish this really bomb-diggity look on a budget haunt your local thrift stores and garage sales. But if your budget allows take a look at Skateboards.com where you can find a myriad of colorful and fascinating boards from which to choose. If you have skateboards hanging out in your garage use them. You will add instant history to the room along with eye-catching style.
