One of my favorite design techniques is putting a twist on a traditional design idea. Take a headboard for example, originally part of a whole bed construction is now used to frame an area behind the bed and perhaps provide a bit of support for when you want to sit up in bed and read. Well one of my favorite retailers Brocade Home creates the headboard idea in a totally different way, using wall art to create a focal point. Of course most of us do put art above our bed, but what I like about this is that it creates the illusion of a headboard and there is no longer a need to add artwork. REDUCE the amount of excess in your space and create a crisp, clean design for your most relaxing space!
