{curves in all the right places}

A few weeks back, during the second episode of Sarah’s House 3, Sarah Richardson decorated two sumptuous guest bedrooms in her farmhouse. Both were very pretty and unique bedrooms with totally different palettes, you can see the entire episode by clicking here. There was one element in the west guestroom that I couldn’t get over; a perfectly curvy custom headboard!

The nailhead detail was perfect for accentuating the shape of this lovely headboard:

Pretty vintage lamps added sparkle to the room. A neat little trick: double the sparkle by placing a mirror behind the lamp!

If you are anything like me, you might be in love with the shape of this headboard, but be a teensy weensy afraid of using such a bold and intricate fabric in your bedroom. Well, I happened to come across the same headboard with a bit more of a sleek and simple look:

Both are quite fabulous in my opinion! Can’t wait till the next episode tomorrow (Tuesday night), Sarah will be re-doing the dining room. Will you be watching?

Wow, that is a gorgeous bedroom! I actually prefer the headboard with the pattern. It almost makes it extra "curvy" haha! Why can't my bedroom look more like this??! =)

I won't be home to watch tonight, but I'll be cranking up the PVR :-)

I can't remember if Sarah said what inspired the shape of the headboard. It really is unique -- love the nailhead trim :-)

Yes I'll be watching if I can get control of the remote. You see hockey seems to run this house!
I love that headboard too. I am going to attempt something similar with less curves. One of the many things on my to-do list!

I love the jeweled lamp. Beautiful! Interesting blog!

I have my PVR set! Tonight is the farm house dining room!! Of the 2 headboards, I prefer the one with the printed fabric... so much fun and the colours are fantastic! I have a cheep headboard in our bedroom and I've been thinking about upholstering a section... hmmm... won't be curvy and sexy like this one, but it could be nice. We'll see. Too many projects on the go right now!! Ha!

Love Sarah Richardson...and Tommy what a Hoot. Met him in 2009 and had a great chat with him.

i'll have to watch online once the episode airs, but thanks for the heads up.

I also prefer the busier headboard. super unique and cool. While the second one is certainly less "daring", the bright wall color behind it makes up for it, don't you think? ;-)

Sarah certainly did a beautiful headboard and she obviously had a talented upholsterer to get around all those curves. I too set the PVR and just watched yesterday's episode - the paper backed fabric was very interesting - didn't know you could do that.

Nancy Marcus Gueret said...

Hope you all enjoyed the dining room episode!! I agree with Lisa, the paper backed fabric was the most interesting part to me. I was worried about it getting dirty at first, but then when she chose such a perfect height for her wainscotting (just enough to see the fabric, but not too much that it was overwhelming) I was in love!

Rachel, I also agree with you that the room above with the bright punchy wall color makes up for no pattern on the headboard, and the bedding is much more busy that what Sarah used as well!

Great headboard. I love using upholstered headboards in my designs. They are so much better than wood headboards. In fact I even have a custom headboard in my own home!
