Instant Style: Textile Draped Headboard


One of my favorite styling tricks to add an instant boost to a bland bedroom is to simply drape the existing headboard with a textile! I know it is not complicated, but layering fabric or a rug over a plain headboard helps create a collected, casual and visually interesting look with no heavy lifting needed. It is also a great way to experiment with a burst of color - if you tire of it, it's so easy to swap out! A beautiful throw blanket, flat-weave area rug, quilt or vintage textile all can work wonderfully. Maybe you already have a favorite piece at home to try? Here are a few of my favorite examples. . .






For a little retail inspiration, here are four textiles available online right now {bonus: they all ship to Singapore, wow!}

This Eivor throw from Ikea would be so graphic and fun! 


One of these richly hued Kantha Quilts from West Elm would add so much warmth and texture too:



I love the geometric pattern and soft hue of this blue Moroccan Dhurrie rug:


Or how lovely would this vibrant vintage Suzani textile be? 



Have I convinced you to try this trick at home? 
Happy Styling!
