When selecting furniture, opt for furniture with clean lines and that`s non-themed (steer clear of the race car or sleeping beauty beds) and pair with neutral colored essentials such as lamps and window treatments. The exciting part of creating a super fun bedroom for your young brood is accessorizing and customizing design elements to match their budding personalities. Select design elements that make the room feel like it belongs to both of them. Personalize accessories throughout the room such as wall art or coat hooks. Marquee lights with their names or first initial add a pop of energy and excitement to any space. Likewise, subtly add gender specific themes in one or two accessories, but keep them color coordinated. For example when accessorizing with red, try a throw pillow with a red fire engine for him, and a pillow with a red flower or heart for her. Storage that is complementary to the design scheme but specific for each gender (think charcoal for boys and yellow for girls) can also seamlessly pull a room together.
A free-form headboard can infuse your personality and interests into a one-of-a kind creation. If it is your passion, it can become a focal point in your bedroom; with a free-form design, the ceiling`s the limit. Similar to free-form headboards in their ability to capture your interests, art-based headboards have just a little more structure. Cover canvases with fabric or paint and group them on the wall over your bed. Framing pictures of loved ones or locales makes the most personalized of headboards, as does a backdrop of favorite quotes.
Add a soft touch of texture to your bedroom by hanging a rug on the wall as a headboard alternative. A standard 5×8 rug is wide enough to match a queen size, 60 wide mattress. An Indian dhurrie-style rug (shown above) is the easiest type of rug to work with, since it’s lightweight and thin. Find a unique wall panel or room screen and hang it as a headboard. Geometrically-patterned screens or room dividers create the most contemporary impact. For extra contrast, remove the screen's boring paper backing and paint the screen's frame in a color that ties into your bedroom's decor. There are many types of headboards you can create using fabric.
