Beautiful bedheads – part 3

Thanks for your patience, my scanner has been on strike (maybe in sympathy of the Writers Union in the US ?) but is finally working again too. And Maison 21 – I’ll be waiting for my commission check in the mail!

Okay, so you can’t technically see the bedhead in this pic, but I wanted to share because I love the colours of this room so much. Bedroom of fashion designer, Steven Stolman, and partner.

A lovely four poster bed in the French country house of one of my favorite furniture designers, Todd Hase.

Fresh white with studded detailing in the bedroom of designer Tony Fornabaio and partner.

Ornamental shaped bedhead in a room by Nate Berkus.

A Black diamond buttoned beauty in a room by Sharon Simonaire.

Classic chic in the bedroom of designer Mario Nievera.

More dark inviting colours – in the bedroom of British Khaki founder, Robert Lighton.

Paisley perfection in Christopher Spitzmiller’s bedroom.

A pretty satin number by DD Allen.

Quiet and serene in a bedroom by Diana Viñoly.

Not technically just a bedhead – I had purposefully steered away from adding four posters and canopy beds, but this one, and the Todd Hase one are the exceptions. Jeffrey Bilhuber’s fresh take on an old favorite.

Two ornate designs, in classic Katie Ridder style.

And finally, the image that got me started on these posts! Now that I’ve found it I won’t bore you with a 4th edition. This is from a Melbourne home that was inspired by a Philippe Starck designed hotel the owner stayed in. Featured in Vogue Living (Australia) Jan/Feb 2006. I love the fact that this bedhead is floor to ceiling, I love the diamond buttoning (of course!) and the custom built in sconces.

Beatiful bedheads – part 1

In winter there are not many things that I like better than to curl up in bed with a good book – or a pile of magazines -as we don’t have a heater in our apartment (no, I’m not kidding, we just don’t need them here usually) its one of the only places to get warm at this time of year. This feeling of wanting to hibernate has got me thinking of my dream bed. I definitely love an upholstered headboard, and I’m a bit of a fan of bedheads that look soft, comfy and a little like a sofa. I guess its the sense of being enveloped by something. So here are a few of my picks…

Bed by Oly studio

An interior by Kelly Wearstler

A room by Jay Jeffers – this is getting closer to what I like about a headboard…needs a bit more padding for me, but I like the shape.

Classic shaped bed from Grace Home Furnishings

An old image from my style files – sorry I’ve forgotten the source!

Two beds by Frank Roop, like this second one, it looks a bit like a hotel room set up, but it still has a warmth about it.

Long and low bedhead by Fox-Nahem design

Suede magic from Eric Cohler – getting closer.
A guest room at Eichardt’s Hotel in Queenstown, New Zealand. I’d love a fur throw at the end of my bed. Faux, of course.

Two sweet as can be beds, from Domino magazine

Cozy and warm looking bedroom, and a very snug looking bedhead, in an interior by Darren Henault – this is pretty close too. I love the choice of colours in this room, its definitely a good room for winter!

Bedroom by Beale Lana interiors

Now we’re talking… I LOVE this bedhead. Diamond buttoning, its nice and high (good for sitting up and reading), and the fabric looks nice and soft too. Another from my style files…can’t remember the source for this one…and I know its been blogged about a few times already…

Another two old images from my style files, although I think the 2nd one is from Domino magazine.
Stay tuned for the 2nd installment…

Today I’m loving…

This bed is perfect! It’s got just enough deco-inspired details to make me sleep easy, not too feminine – so my husband will be happy, and I love the upholstered headboard. I usually like a matching endboard, but I love the feet and base on this design. I want one!

Images are from a promotional brochure for the fabric collection from Larry Laslo for Robert Allen. Not sure if the bed is a Laslo design, but I aim to find out!
