BEDHEADS THE LATEST TREND FOR LUXURY AND COMFORT Janita Singh BEDROOM BEAUTY Details: heatherlydesign.com.au DO IT YOURSELF If you don t want to invest in a ready-made bedhead, it s easy to DIY. Makea statement piece bedhead using an old door or vintage gates. Cleaning and spray painting will bring these to life. Old signs and posters add interest to a room. Screen savers and dividers behind the bed serve the same purpose. Or hang a large piece of artwork. Bright colours make a strikingly different bedhead. Wood pallets or fencing material like the traditional white pallet are unique. Covering the existing bedhead with some colourful material is a smart way to keep changing the look. Painting a portion right behind the bed is a quick and cheaper way to make a bold statement. Use a blackboard paint and you can add refreshing notes to rise and shine to each day. Collect artwork or family pictures. An old mirror is not only stylish but makes the room appear much larger. AS more people pay attention to bedroom decor, chances are of more changes taking place in this personal space. The bedroom is where we spend a good amount of time, resting and relaxing. So putting your time and energy here is a very worthy investment. In recent times, stylish bed- heads have come to the forefront of bedroom beauty. Upholstered bedheads are one of this year's hottest trends. Designers are turning them into great pieces of artwork -- using all sorts of new tactics from im- plementing classic designs with studs to new modern looks using leather. They boast anything from simply sophisticated to tailored masculine looks to suit all tastes and moods. Director and designer Georgie Leckey of Heatherly Design, which specialises in creating tailor-made bedheads says current trends are about luxury and atten- tion to detail. ''Whether it be texture in the velvet chosen or the finishing touch of a cross stitch or contrast- ing coloured button, it's all in the detail,'' she says. Investing in a custom-made bed- head adds a finishing touch and comfort to any bedroom. ''It provides a luxurious back- drop for reading at night, offers a focal point for adding colour to a room and proportions a bed by offering height,'' Ms Leckey says. Seen any great ideas?
