A valance and sheers can add a romantic headboard to a bedroom
Dec 8 2010
In an eclectic decorating scheme for a bedroom, particularly one that's tight on space, a new approach can be taken to the traditional headboard.
An art work or wall hanging can replace a traditional headboard.r
A simple back board can be decorated by painting or with wallpaper for a cottage-style headboard that is coordinated with the other colors in the room. For a softer look, the board can be lined with foam and covered by fabric for an upholstered headboard that's comfortable for reading in bed.
To save space, a faux headboard can take the place of a real one. Some ideas include decorating the wall around the bed, giving the illusion of a headboard by using a tapestry or quilt for a backdrop, or by painting a design on the wall that frames the bed.
A romantic look can be achieved by installing a valance high above the bed and attaching a cascade of sheer fabric that drapes down behind and alongside the bed.
For a coordinating window treatment, valances can be mounted at the bedroom's windows with curtains to match the bedside sheers. A valance can also be mounted over shades or blinds.
