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.
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.
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!
When is a headboard not a headboard? When it′s a wall between two windows! This is a marvelous solution in a small room where a more traditional bed can easily prove overwhelming. Wrapping the space in wallpaper makes it feel like a big warm hug but you could accomplish a similarly comfy look by using wallpaper just over the bed. By the way (I am jumping on my soapbox here) wallpaper constantly cycles in and out of fashion. Do not let that dictate whether or not you use it. It is only "out" if you are not a wallpaper person and it is only "in" if you are.
