“A room that’s all neutral needs impact,” says designer Shea McGee, and this grand custom headboard does the trick. To suit the minimalist look the Park City, UT, couple craved, it’s upholstered in solid-color linen. Stacked framed nature scenes on either side enhance the serene feel while also filling all that space above the nightstands.
The headboard and pillows are custom upholstered with fabrics that were carefully selected to create a modern twist on this rustic retreat – and the metallic wallpaper behind is a dark but reflective statement, which plays with the light in the room, without taking away from the regal style.
Making the storage headboard requires materials such as plywood and tools including a circular saw and a miter saw. The Lowe’s project can be done over the weekend, and it’s best if you have an intermediate skill level.
Anchoring the guest bedroom design, a sculptural adornment above the bed is a statement piece that ties the room together. “We found that on the island," says interior designer Linda Woodrum. "It was an old piece that was signage for something and we just bought it impulsively."
The oversized pale blue headboard makes a statement in this otherwise neutral bedroom. The transitional space ties contemporary pieces, like the headboard and ceiling fan, together with more traditional pieces, like the white bedding and bedside table.
