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.
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.
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.
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.
