1 Headboard, 3 Ways
Designer Liz Woods designed a chic, versatile headboard, and gave it three distinct looks.
Height: "A headboard between 48 and 52 inches high has a nice overall feel for most rooms," says Woods. "It's also a good height for comfort, as it works well for reading in bed."
Design: "If a room has soaring ceilings or a lot of other details, I suggest using a simple shape for a sense of balance," she says.
Fabric: "Solid, natural fabrics are the most versatile and the easiest to clean," says the designer. "Large patterns don't translate quite as well because you lose a lot of the pattern when you add pillows."
Slipcovers: "A slipcover immediately diversifies your bed," she says. "You can add a monogram, ribbon ties, or a pretty trim for extra detail."
