Bedroom I've been busy designing a project that installs at the end of the month (a model home) and am working on bedding at this very moment. Finding myself hitting a "creativity" roadblock, I decided jump online to hopefully spark some fresh ideas. After analyzing bedroom after bedroom, I've come to the conclusion that pretty much anything goes when it comes to bedding...as long as the fabrics somehow coordinate, you can pull almost anything off! Headboards definitely add something special to the overall look of a bed, but if that isn't an option, wallpaper or accent paint are just as great to really make everything pop. Pattern play - a great mix against a crisp white headboard Lots of pillows and layered textures An eclectic mix of pattern and color Bold graphic prints accented with crisp white and pops of coral Simple and elegant with an eclectic mix of floral and geometric prints / love the headboard! The printed headboard allows for simple bedding Great colors, right?!
