Visualize a masculine bedroom in neutral colors. Seen in this luxury opera penthouse with inspiring Armani Design decor in Israel, the master bedroom above is a freeform work of art with generous use of the given panorama.

With a little elbow grease and a lot of inspiration, you can create the perfect piece for your bedroom and your budget. Which of these DIY headboard ideas speaks to you?
Sometimes its not just Jeremy and Sarah that you need to accommodate, but a 3-year-old Jeremy and a 4-month-old Sarah can definitely add another layer of design anxiety. The first thing to tackle is the furniture layout. If you have a baby, chances are you‘ll be in and out of the room at night to tend to the baby. If possible, place their beds in opposite corners or walls with the crib being most accessible to the door. Obviously structural elements such as windows and heaters can dictate otherwise but your design objective is to give each child the most comfortable night‘s sleep without one waking the other. Creating a play area that both siblings can enjoy, even simultaneously, is super helpful, especially for tired mommies and daddies. Floor mats, cushions and soft larger items like a rocking horse and tents are perfect to outline the area and fun for both to play in. Place your older child`s toys in accessible storage containers, but higher than the floor so your youngest can‘t easily touch it.
Cut a thin wood panel in the size you'd like for your headboard, spray glue some foam batting to pad the wood a bit and wrap your fabric nicely in the front while stapling in the back. Headboard ideas that are contemporary include creating a long headboard panel that not only frames your bed, but your nightstand, too, like the room in the image above. Another non-traditional way to create a cool, modern headboard is by using the panels unconventionally. Hang the panel vertically instead of horizontally. Group two narrow, vertical panels with a gap in-between. The headboard design above is not only different but changes with the bedding. The homeowners remove the coordinating striped runners and replace them with new ones that go with the fresh, new bedding.
