While there are also really beautiful metal headboards that you can get, the major disadvantage of buying a metal headboard is that you’re often compromising comfort and style, because they are too uncomfortable to lay against. With wood headboards, however, you can watch TV, read a book or other things you need to be lying up in bed a lot at ease.
The softness of this material is very comfortable. Remember when choosing an item that sits at the head of the bed, you want something you can lean back on. Whether you’re reading a book or watching television in bed, having the ability to learn back and be comfortable is an enormous convenience. It also ensures that you make the most of your bedroom design, a relaxing place with your own personal design.
One of the added advantages of choosing leather over other headboard materials is the easy maintenance that you have to do. With wood you need to polish it regularly, watch out for chips and cracks and sometimes even re-varnish after long periods. Leather headboards are so much easier. You need to dust the headboard at least once a week, ensure it is Scotch-guarded and wipe it clean if there are any spills. The material doesn’t chip or crack, so you are guaranteed to enjoy your new headboard for years to come.

Printed fantasy - got an old printed sari you don’t know where to use? Make bedding out of it. Use patterned wallpaper in muted shades to complement it. For furniture, keep the lines simple, and to offset the bright patterns of the sari, use a neutral colour like white or cream. For flooring too, use a light shade, and throw an eclectic printed rug. Go green - and we mean it literally. The touch of green on the walls can be contrasted with serene accents of white for bedding, upholstery and even the drapes. Use wooden furniture to complete the look. Accents of white as well as black work equally well with this kind of decor scheme.
Centerpieces: Table centerpieces and door hangings can be a nice holiday touch, but do not overlook this decorative opportunity just because it isn’t Christmas! Pumpkins, acorns, and pinecones make great centerpieces for the fall months. You could hollow out a pumpkin and use it as a flowerpot or elevate a candle and add stones and acorns to the design. Beaded garland is always a nice touch. You can wrap this around gourds, or plastic apples and throw acorns and leaves in the mix. For extra shiny leaves, rub with a little Vaseline or moisturizer.

This is the perfect way to maximize storage space while keeping the rest of the room clutter free. Whether you want to stow your linens and towels, the kid’s clothes or seasonal items, divan bed drawers will give you all the room you need. And because they are built into the bed base, you don’t sacrifice the look of your furniture.
