My master bedroom isn't "done". In fact, it isn't even started, because I can't figure out what to do with my headboard! So that is one of the things I always notice in model homes. Most are just headboards of one type or another. Occasionally I see something really grand or especially clever that goes into my inspiration file.
Here are 3 examples that I thought were great. And the 4th, you be the judge!
First we have a girl's room. This simple bookcase, fit snugly between two free-standing side tables creates a built-in look and a perfect place to layer pillows as the headboard. I love the hanging pendant lights which free up the table tops!
This second example uses moulding, paint and a great piece of art to create the illusion of a headboard.
In this third room, the whole wall behind the head of the bed is covered in tongue & groove paneling, unexpectedly placed on the horizontal. This would be great in a cottage-style room.
Now...for the dud! What is this all about? I walked into this room and stared at this wall thinking, "what are they trying to cover up there"? The fabric wasn't special in any way, the pleating was messy, the whole thing reminds me of hospital bed curtains! The art is too small, even in a group, and the chains gives the room a "dungeon" flair! Ugh! I could hardly believe it was done by the same designer.
What do you think? Am I way off base about the last room? I'll admit the idea has possibilities. But for me, this room is just ugly!
Note: (The bedspread was "arranged" by the two little boys whose parents weren't paying any attention as they jumped on every bed!)
