Ikat Upholstered Headboard

An unexpected circular shape adds instant impact.

Inspired by childhood vacations to Los Angeles and Bermuda, homeowner Victoria Webster opted for loads of colour in her bedroom. The Art Nouveau designer Emile-Jacques Ruhlmann-inspired bed is the focal point, and a backdrop of textural green wallpaper makes the oversized, nailhead trimmed headboard stand out even more.

See a video tour of this bedroom. Plus, learn how to make a DIY upholstered headboard from House & Home editors Joel Bray and Morgan Michener.
