A BEDROOM should be beautiful, only beautiful in a way that is also confortable and relaxing.
Here's just a taste of what a bedroom should be:
* Don't go overboard with a layered bed. A simple color schemem and minimal accessories keep the room restful.
* Swing-arm lamps offer the best reading light.
* For a professional look, iron all your linens, and pad pillow shams with batting to fill them out.
* To change a headboard look, consider having it slipcovered.
The following is one headboard with 3 different looks. Birmingham, AL. interior designer Liz Woods, designed a headboard with pattern Batan by Dedar fabric with a roll of nailheads as an accent.
In Woods first bedding, notice how the first design is blanketed in white, making the room soft and feminine in layers of different whites. An added color is the one decorative pillow for a colorful pattern contrast as a punctuation.
The appealing shades of gray is all about texture. The muted colors lend a hint of masculinity, but the interplay of textures softens the look. This look also is without a bedskirt, but with all the tucking in of sheets and blankets, this bed has a cleaner, finished look which does emphasizes the headboard and shows off the nailhead trim.
Green is a great color for a bedroom and this pattern fabric in not overwhelming. The look is more relaxed and natural with the paired duvet and quilt, and structured skirt for contrast. I am in love with the velvet accent pillows which I believe provides richness and a sense of depth. Don't you just love the persimmon with the green?
Be ready for Fall, while summer is upon us. Now is the time to consider selecting fabrics and have a local workroom upholster a headboard w/ nailhead trim.
