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.
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.
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.
