To head the bed?

Our second bedroom has an ensemble bed so I have been keeping an eye out for a bed head to sit behind it. Not only can a bed head have a useful purpose in ensuring all your pillows and cushions don't slip down the back of the bed... a bedhead can also help change the look of the entire room and add instant impact.

Some do it yourself options are to buy some old doors or shutters that you could sand back for a rustic look.  You could also use an old pallet which you could pick up really cheaply from your local tip shop.

Or there are gorgeous fabric options.  There are some great tutorials around if you wanted to make one yourself... try here or here.  A great idea with fabric bed heads would be to use fabric that you have had printed especially.  Spoonflower is a great website that allows you to upload an image and then choose the type of fabric you'd like that image printed on.  Imagine a handwritten note printed on fabric or your favourite childrens drawing... 

Finally, peacock bedheads are everywhere at the moment.  The cane is a lightweight feminine option that looks beautiful.

  1. I am obsessed with bedheads too! I really like the rustic doors, but also the rustic wood with the photos strung along the top I have never seen that before.
