Diy bedroom update: patchwork headboard

01 February 2015

I love this idea for using up fabric remnants, old clothes or creating something from scratch,’ says stylist Carl Braganza. ‘It’s a fun way to create a unique backdrop to your bed at low cost.’

‘This idea gives you a lot of flexibility. It can look totally different just by spinning it 180 degrees. Or you could hang a different headboard for each season.’

‘Sticking to similar shapes keeps the whole from looking too busy, though don’t be afraid to have fun – the heart here is lovely and playful.’

‘Who says you have to buy a new bed for your bed to feel new?’
