Recreating the look of a penthouse in your bedroom is all about space and light. There is a reason why people pay a premium for apartments way up in the clouds, and while you may not have a view of sun-drenched LA from your window, you can create a penthouse-style room by maximizing the view and the natural light you have.
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.
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.
Upholstered headboards bring luxury to the bedroom. The curved outline of this first DIY idea adds elegance, while a bold color choice introduces a vivid palette. Fiberboard, foam board, muslin, decorative fabric and piping give this project its substance, and the finished product reveals a big payoff.
