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.
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.
A beautiful slab of wood becomes a unique headboard setting the stage for a naturally elegant and simple bedroom design. Whenever I see this photo I want to begin redoing a bedroom immediately emulating this look. The design plan took full advantage of the architectural features of the room repeating the shape of the arch on the upholstered headboard. There is a wonderful sense of coziness created by tucking the bed into the alcove.
This large headboard is actually a space saver. In a room that lacks depth you may fear there′s no room for a headboard but a wall-mounted one like this takes up very little space. Because the room can now accommodate such a substantial-looking bed it appears larger.
