I came across this article in an old Southern Accents magazine. Birmingham designer Liz Woods was asked to design a headboard that could anchor the look of three unique bedroom styles. She chose to use a simple rectangle shape, upholstered it and added nailhead trim which you know I love. (See why Here) This really would be a simple headboard to make!
Have you or would you try this?
Look at the different looks that Woods created:
|"I designed this headboard with one goal in mind: to keep it classic and enduring," says designer Liz Woods. "I chose a simple rectangular shape that is versatile and easy to slipcover."|
This first look is feminine and pretty. A tone on tone design with a contrasting Ikat pillow that completes the look!
My personal favorite ,except I could never have a bare tile floor in the bedroom. I do love the more masculine, tailored look of the bed. I've never cared for bedskirts- do you? ...Besides, tucking in the bedding shows off more nailhead trim!
The natural rug and green patterned duvet give this bedroom a very organic feel. Notice the contrasts in texture- quilted skirt, fluffy duvet, velvet pillows and natural weave rug. Remarkably, it works!
This last photo is a different headboard altogether but with the same lines. Again, simple enough to make albeit a little more work with all of the tufting but WOW- I think it would be worth it.
Now this is fun!
Which of these looks is your favorite?
