[ my inspirational bedrooms ]

I HOPE YOU'VE all been enjoying your long summer weekend and Happy 4th of July to all of my lovely American friends! It's been a whirlwind of shopping for this and that for the apartment, and definitely not all exciting things: washer/dryer, cutlery, dishes, toiletries & cleaning supplies... but also keeping our eyes peeled for furniture options.

I've been gathering inspirational pics of bedrooms I love, and the beds all seem to have one thing in common: upholstered headboards. We've had a black 4-poster bed which I love, but since that has gone into storage in Canada, we've been on the hunt for a new bed. I think an upholstered one would be so cozy and one of these would be dreamy:

So with all of this gorgeousness in mind, we've scoured Dubai for something that will give us this look. Tomorrow I'll show you what choices we've come across.

Lovely! We just upholstered a headboard for our room about a month ago...plywood, foam, beautiful flax colored linen fabric...turned out great and cost us less than $100.

Can't wait to see what you come up with!

Love all of the above images. They are nice and calm and peaceful looking. Perfect for a bedroom. Love the mix of blue and white in a bedroom, Kathysue

It looks like you're really attracted to light colors for those upholstered headboards too. These are all beautiful but that first one looks so cozy the way it wraps around at the sides.
