Using two shades of the same color when painting a headboard is both unexpected and visually interesting. Below (left), the light green stencil paint makes a monochromatic statement against the pear green wall color. Featured on Simply Seleta, this project takes its inspiration from a Domino magazine image.
Another modern headboard idea involves the use of decals. Wall decals are available from a variety of vendors, both online and retail. From whimsical and organic to geometric and contemporary, a myriad of styles suits every design sensibility. The decal below comes from Etsy shop ShaNickers Wall Decals. Purchase a decal designed specifically for headboards, or let inspiration take hold and create your own design by combining your favorite decal selections.
This next headboard features a lattice pattern, although any fabric of choice will do. Add the help of plywood, foam and batting, and the project comes to life. The power is in the headboard’s height, which draws the eye upward, making the room look taller. Don’t forget the nail head trim! Here are two more do-it-yourself headboard projects, each one unique yet similar in the low, rectangular design. The first idea (below, left) shows DIY enthusiasts how to refresh an upholstered headboard with new fabric. The second project (below, right) uses decorative molding to create a picture frame for the outline, then fills in the center with fabric-covered plywood.
Window space is important; penthouse apartments typically utilize sliding glass doors to allow as much light into the room as possible. While you may be restricted in this sense, it is worth considering whether you can make any alterations to create more window space. To make the most of the light you have, neutral colors are the best choice for the walls. You can add a splash of color on the wall around the window for impact, but opposite the window you should use neutral colors to reflect light back into the room.
