In a micro space, a generously sized decorative piece can help distract from the size of the room. Look at the large chandelier and the vibrant picture next to the bed: The eye has so much to look at that it barely registers the room’s small dimensions.
For an unexpected headboard, use a decorative element that’s not typical for a bedroom. Consider painted wooden window shutters, a decorative wall divider that can lie flat and be attached to the wall, or an ornate iron panel painted a fun color. Just make sure to place oversized pillows in front of this kind of installation or hang it where your head can’t touch it.
This finished bedroom, with planning and execution, took four months. The nightstands were custom, the wallpaper handmade, the bedframe, furniture, rugs, lighting and accessories took months to arrive from our vendors. Then we had to consider the electrical work, painting, application of the wallcovering, and the installation of the furniture. The takeaway is that a well-done room takes time, planning and patience, but the outcome is worth waiting for.
There are numerous ways to get creative with a bed wall. A mural, a featured paint color and even wallpaper can be cost-effective if you choose economical options. Creating a gallery wall above your bed can also be a way to add a personalized touch. Another idea is to showcase a cool headboard.
