Upholstered headboards ‘can alter mood of bedrooms’
Investing in an upholstered headboard can change the mood of bedrooms, it has been claimed.
In an article for the Washington Examiner, Merlisa Lawrence Corbett suggested that this item of bedroom furniture may also “expand its sense of space” and alter the style, with a wide range of fabrics and prints that can be used.
She quoted June Shea of Shea Studio Interiors who said that upholstered headboards “can make a room warmer and cozier” and had transformed the style of formal and traditional sleeping quarters with a contemporary headboard that “added an element of drama”.
Ms Shea added that upholstered headboards should usually be short enough to ensure that a picture can be hung above them.
However, Kelley Proxmire of the Washington Design Center Hall of Fame claimed that taller items can add “an important element of proper scale” to a bedroom.
Meanwhile, a writer for Metro News in Canada, Karl Lohnes, recently recommended selecting bedroom furniture in accent colours could brighten up this season’s shades, which continue to include grey neutrals.
