DIY BEDROOM UPDATE: TAPE HEADBOARD

01 February 2015

‘This is a fantastic and affordable option for creating your own headboard – all you need is a few packs of tape,’ says stylist Carl Braganza. ‘It’s also easy to change when you fancy an update.’

‘You can make any shape you want, like a giant letter or an inspiring word, and change or add to it over time’

‘To maximise impact, try co-ordinating your bed linen with your pattern. Together they will create a striking focal point.’

‘For a geometric design, try taking inspiration from the lines of the furniture and accessories in your bedroom.’

‘Leave some clear space so your design can breathe. A broken line on the outside is a good way to soften a hard edge.’

‘Black and white tape works well with a monochrome bedroom scheme, but you could just as easily try coloured or floral tapes’
