An Alternative Headboard Made of Pillows

Here's an inspiring bedroom decor idea we spied over at Olivieri, the Italian furniture design brand. Ironically, the high end design site showcases a fairly affordable option for those of us looking to add a bit of flourish and fun in the bedroom…Upon close inspection of the pillow headboard, it seems a thin frame with hooks hold each of the the pillows in place. What we like about this idea besides the novel use of decorative pillows instead of a typical hard or padded headboard is the flexibility to switch out pillows to refresh the overall aesthetic impression. So come spring, one could exchange darker hues with some lighter hued pillows; or one could go from modern and simple solids to decorative and ornate pattens.

Even more dramatic, solid pillows could be screen printed to form a unified or larger image (head out to somewhere like Fresh Pressed in Los Feliz to tackle this sort of DIY project). This concept may be the compromise solution for bedrooms with a plethora of decorative pillows that grace beds during the day, and could be hung up overhead while sleeping!
