Furniture: When redecorating for the fall season, consider this whimsical touch. Use wallpaper decals on your older furniture for a completely new look. Whenever redecorating bedrooms, headboards can make a huge difference in the overall feel of the room. Metal frames and headboards are big this fall, and can give the appearance of extra space. An alternative headboard idea from Better Homes and Gardens is to attach vintage hankies to an artists’ canvas and hang it above and behind the bed. For a full-room change, slipcovers are always drastic for any season. Whether you are redecorating an entire room or just looking for a seasonal alteration, throwing slipcovers over your tables and chairs can make for a nice accent to any room.
Why the wrap around headboard is good for a room with little space, such as a dorm or child’s room, is because its effect does not enlarge the space the bed already occupies. The room does not appear to be crowded or stifling. The fun colors available for fabric headboards - orange, lime green, sunshine yellow, and purple just to name a few - definitely give the room a personalized and fun look. If you are seeking a more conservative, reserved look for your room; you may want to consider using a "straight headboard flush" fabric headboard. If you would like to add a bit of flair to your headboard, look into button and pleating options.
