Sweet Dreams

If you are faced with a plain, awkward, or tiny bedroom space  - you may not need to call the contractor after all! Headboards and bed frames are a fantastic way to add character and interest to a room without a major investment. The right headboard can lend architectural interest and life to a room. To me bedrooms should feel a bit special – a private and cozy place to relax. I think the ones below are just that! 
This soothing petal pink and white bedroom is by designer Gary McBournie - the iron bed gives the room height and drama but thanks to the white cotton voile fabric, it still looks light and airy! 

Master styler Jonathan Adler used curtain rods, attached directly to the ceiling, and hung with nautical style draperies to give character - a great cost saving solution too since no actual frame or headboard is needed! 

John Willey designed these extra tall twin headboards, which make this tiny room feel more cozy than cramped. The matching custom bedskirts give the beds a grounded feel without taking up the extra space which footboards would. I also love the treatment he used on the ceiling, with crossed decorative beams and a contrasting paint color to make the low ceiling feel charming instead.

Lastly, is this fantastic, oversized headboard by designer Tom Sheerer, featured in House Beautiful. It simply floats on the wall behind the bed. The great printed linen by Quadrille supplies the visual interest and the three large upholstered panels would be great to lean up against while reading in bed! 

Sweet Dreams!
