Ivory guestroom head board
The old headboard for the bed which is now in the guest room, was a dark brown faux suede, which went well in the old house which had dark wardrobes.
In the new tiny guest room I am trying to keep things as light and plain as possible to give a feeling of space. So we recovered the brown headboard with two layers of ivory cotton upholstery fabric, just stapled into place at the back. It is not exciting, but it is light and plain and seems to work well.
The current home made curtains are autumn gold with a leaf motif, but again too heavy for the room, so I picked up these white ones embroidered with a tiny yellow bud on sale at Dunelm. Ex display and full length, so will need shortening, but hopefully they will also be light and airy whilst also blocking the light since they have an integral blackout lining.
