Kim Myles: Hey everybody today I am going to share with you some ideas for what can be the hardest part of the bedroom makeover and one that I know a lot of you drag the head because the headboard is a big feature it is the focal point. So you really want to get it right and there is really simple things you can do to make a huge impact. The great example, Mary from New Jersey now I tell you she’s from New Jersey because the New Jersey devils where the inspiration for her son’s bedroom. Its his favorite hockey team and she use that as a great jumping for the room, she added hockey sticks at the head of the bed maybe came time of the angle focal point headboard, she also include at the teens colors black and red and we’ve also done totally successful. She didn’t stop there she also put up her daughters room with this pink and girly and fun and if you look at that headboard all it is a corner and two curtain pillows. Good job Mary, now here is the tip, if you are having trouble picking it up what vibe you want to create in the bedroom, consider these options. If you want romance in soft, cabin and fabric, if you want something that’s all the worst strong with masculine think about sculptural items, think about wood as a material and if you want something that feels contemporary I always feel like natural elements are very successful and a perfect example of this is Glen and Sarah’s bedroom. Now they wanted to create a Zen like vibe in that bedroom. They are working with a completely blink slide and no paint so what I did was create a fantastic headboard using a river rock tiled. We started with this plywood, we have a little back of board is higher with that surface and just like you of tile anything in a standard bathroom and then we flip it up on the all and magic and it became a ceiling to floor headboard. We ink with it with slide and there is a tip even if you’re in earthquake country no matter what you are hanging into your bed make sort of thing that you’re in place safety first. And the final result was one that was beautiful and scroll like really good in the recipient, now there is one more headboard that I want to show you and each women to show up and Alicia bedroom. And what they also wanted to do was create a bedroom retreat the fit to there empty inherit age that was really important to that. So after say I created with the mother of all headboards, it was a three part headboard and it was drilled on all of the sides so that light could for forth of light and is huge to there empty inheritance because I use classic saffron orange very, very Indian and then I also did kind of the hand paint that affect on the surface that was reminiscence of a handicraft it was gorgeous and I know part of what you are saying is great. If you don’t have any don’t’ give up hope because here is a tip, don’t forget the power of an artist canvas just by taking a five foot by five foot on this canvass and painting in its single color. Favorate making accent color of the room and you paint it and you mount it over the head of the bed and instantly you get in greatest act, it green so up to the walls and stands up and relief, it’s an anchor it’s an focal point and it’s a huge fill of color which has to use it. A headboard is the focal point in the bedroom so when your trying to figure out what approach to take, spend a little time looking for inspiration there because the right is align in right bedroom not only conceal the look of the room it might even help you see the better.
