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.
Measuring the headboard. The optimum height for any headboard is no higher than the midpoint of the lowest wall in the room. This is so that the headboard does not draw all of the attention away from the depth of the room, thereby making it appear smaller. The goal is to make your room look as spacious and roomy as possible, so having a headboard that only reaches halfway up the wall will help keep your room looking more open. To truly appreciate the headboard that you choose, try to find a fabric that either matches most of the other furnishings of the room, or change the furnishing to match headboard. You may also want to consider purchasing some new bed shawls, duvets, pillow covers, and other bed accessories to further compliment your bed.
