PB Teen Bedroom Set
Finding a nice headboard can be a challenging endeavor. Many people just do without, but from a Feng Shui Practitioners point of view this is a big no no. In Feng Shui headboards are not only decorative, they are also responsible for grounding the bed into the space. A patterened “cut-out” headboard like the one featured above doesn’t do much in the way of grounding, but at least it offers respite from the cold, hard walls.
This aged shelf was meant to compliment the exposed beams, I like the concept but would have like it even more if the wood extended down behind the bed. I think that the vases are a dangerous decorative accent and would remove them immediately.
What a great way to recycle antique window frames. When adding an accent of this kind it is important to make sure that they are securely fastened to the wall.
Framing a collection of old handkerchiefs adds a touch of heritage. The “handkerchief as headboard” reads success, but the “baskets and bench” at the foot of the bed comes across as clutter. Do away with the baskets and surrounding tchochkes and I think we have a winner.
This hanging cushion-shelf is a nice solution. I would place smaller frames sitting horizontally on the shelf but I can live with these as is.
The shelving unit-headboard does not work for me, this is one of the craziest things I have seen in a while. Why would you want to sleep with your possessions hanging over your head not to mention the towering decorative columns flanking the bed.
The photo gallery effect behind the bed is a bad idea. First off, you loose the pillow rest aspect that a headboard is cherished for. Secondly, who wants all those people staring at you when you are trying to sleep? Bottom line, beds are for sleeping and we need to do all that we can to make this the most peaceful and restful experience of the day.
