For Christmas I have asked Nick to make me a headboard for our bedroom. It’s something we’ve always been lacking and I figured if I asked for it as a Christmas present with December 25 as a deadline, it will finally get done :) Of course, I need to do my part and choose a fabric, and decisions are not my strong suit.
So far I have narrowed it down to three choices. Our walls are a neutral warm light “bray” (brown-gray), and our bedding is simple white with a dark teal stitched border detail.
If you’re a Young House Love reader, you probably recognize the first fabric — it’s what they used on their headboard, which ultimately inspired me to tackle make Nick tackle this project. It has “my” colors and it has a nice organic feel to it, so I was immediately drawn to it. But then the other two are a little more poppy and my style, although I’m not sure how they would look on a headboard.
What would your choice be? Are there any other fabrics out there you think I should see to make my decision even more difficult? :)
