A different kind of headboard

AB_B9 headboard1

We love a good upholstered heardboard–and use them often because of their softness and visual presence–often they make a bed ‘feel’ like a piece of upholstered furniture in a room.  When we furnished a villa home for Alys Beach a couple of years ago, we used upholstered headboards in several of the bedrooms.  For one of the bedrooms however, we decided to do things a little bit differently.

Paige and Anna Kay had the idea to take an antiqued-mirror floor screen and turn it into a headboard.  The piece lends a great deal of drama to the space and the height of the screen definetely makes the bed the centerpiece of the room (as it should be!).  The dark wood of the screen echos the chocolate bedding and contratsts nicely with the crisp white walls.

A skirted table is a quiet companion to the headboard and glass Barbara Cosgrove lamps from our shop lend an airy modern touch.
