Headboards and other alternatives

I am working on two bedrooms for young teenage girls and considering upholstered headboards for their rooms.

The dark welting on the headboard below makes the shape pop and gives the yellow and white stripe fabric more definition.


A matching headboard and bedskirt is always a nice look.


I love this headboard shape and pretty Zoffany fabric. It looks nice and tight on a twin bed.


Martha Stewart always presents a clean look.The trim on the headboard and bedskirt bring it together.


A white headboard on dark walls is always very smart.


A creative way to make a headboard is to frame a piece of plywood and put some batting underneath a piece of fabric.


Or you could use tiles to give the definition to the wall behind the bed.


Two painted beds is easy to do and a good DIY project.


A recycled door with mounted sconces.


Using a shorter bed frame to prop up some pictures up gives height to the bed.


There were some night peeps at my house last night. I think I am going to need a nap today.
