How can we forget the world’s favorite way of adding an accent wall to a room: a splash of paint! This might sound a touch old and a bit too mundane but there is a reason why the simple painted accent wall is such a popular choice.
This $50-million Lake Tahoe house has the ideal bedroom for sleeping well: a large comfortable bed a beautiful view and that wonderful sound of water lapping at the shore. An all-white bedroom is one way to achieve visual simplicity which will keep the bedroom clean and clear for better sleep.
Striped accent walls in the bedroom come in a variety of shapes and forms and it is often the wall behind the headboard that is embellished. Creating a lovely focal point while cleverly extending the color palette of the room the on display today will surely tempt you to proudly sport your true stripes as well!
With wallpaper making a bold comeback in 2015 this is not a bad choice at all and you can simply switch out the wallpaper when you are bored with the pattern. But nothing beats the charm and the beauty of a lovely painted accent wall with smart stripes.
A can simply be crafted using pieces of reclaimed wood or even driftwood that you find around your home. Others have turned to dried branches and old barn doors to get the job done. No matter what your preference is you can rest assured that the wooden headboard is a showstopper in the rustic bedroom.
It is all about choosing the right colors for the space and using a pattern (narrow or broad horizontal or vertical) that fits in with the existing style of the room. By keeping the rest of the room as neutral as possible the effect of this bright and beautiful accent wall can be enhanced further.
Creative wooden headboards need not be relegated to traditional or rustic bedrooms alone and in fact they make a bigger visual impact in more modern rooms that range from the contemporary to the minimal. Of course the design of the headboard and the materials that you use for it need to be altered just a touch to match this more refined atmosphere.
Keeping your bedroom as dark as possible (so pull those shades down if there’s ambient light from outside) cool temperatures and soft comfortable linens will also help you get your 8 hours in.
