When Melissa entered her Junior year at Tulane she moved into her very own apartment. She worked so hard to make her new home fun and inviting. Her bed was the main focus of her design in the apartment. She worked all summer before her junior year to save up for her bed. She looked at Ikea, Target, Ballard Designs, West Elm and Pottery Barn. There were alot of phone calls to me to check out the beds she had found on line and a few trips to Ikea. She was all set on a bed from Ikea but the style she liked did not come in a simple clean white. So she moved on to Target, where she found the perfect one. It was a tufted ultra suade upholstered head board. Perfect! It was white and the ultra suade would be easy to keep clean. It was ordered and excitment mounted on it's expected arrival to Melissa in New Orleans. She waited and waited, checking her tracking number and finally she was told it had been delivered. But wait, Melissa did not have her wonderful new upholstered head board, it had been delivered to the wrong house. So in the pouring rain she drove up and down the streets around her home to find her bed. She called so excited"I found it three streets over!" With a sigh of relief, she put it in her car and drove it home with a huge smile on her face to set up in her new apartment. That was too close a call.
An upholstered head board is such a wonderful design element. Here are some wonderful examples that dress up a bedroom.
