I’m OBSESSED with HGTV Green Home 2012. The one and only downside to working at HGTV: I can’t enter to win this drool-worthy home. I could whine about it all day long, but that just means that you, my friends, need to get busy and enter twice per day, everyday, so I can come visit all the time. (HGTV par-tay!) In the meantime, if you’re dying to bring in some Green Home charm to your casa, why not take inspiration directly from the home itself? One of my favorite rooms is the master bedroom; it’s so soothing with a natural green, blue and brown color palette. The most eye-catching part of the room, though, is the raffia-upholstered headboard that goes all the way up to the ceiling. You’re dying to make it, aren’t you? We have the step-by-step instructions below, and you’ll be shocked at how simple it is.

Cut fabric into 16″ x 16″ squares. Lay a single fabric square down, center the padding on top of the fabric, and then center a 12″ x 12″ plywood square on top of the padding and fabric square. Press one side of the board down, sandwiching the padding between the fabric and the board. Fold the fabric over the side of the board and staple, starting in the center and working toward the edges. Leave 2 inches upstapled on each side of the corners. Continue stapling all other sides.

Staple the corners. Lay out five of your finished upholstered squares, face-down, edge-to-edge. Make sure the squares are perfectly aligned, and then add a 1″ x 4″ board on top of the seam between the two headboard segments. Place pilot holes (one per square) in the board, centered along the edge. Continue this process for the remaining upholstered squares. Follow the instructions for the French cleat packaging to attach your completed headboard to the wall.

Going to Ikea when you live in the city and don’t own a car can sometimes be harrowing. But, despite any challenges, we all press on because a) Swedish meatballs and lingonberries mmmmm, and b) they have truly great, affordable designs. I’m excited because I saw a little preview of upcoming spring products via Jan of Poppytalk on Babble, and this creative Duken bed was included. The Duken actually comes with padded textile covers for the headboard that you can swap out at will. Ikea, you’ve done it again!

You could change the headboard whenever you get bored, or seasonally, or if it’s the guest bed and you want to impress company. It also greatly expands your bedding options, because you can justify buying more sheets to match or complement the different covers. (Or at least I could. I’ll take any excuse!) The Duken doesn’t come out until April, so in the meantime, I’ll just be sitting here trying to mathematically calculate how many different, awesome bed looks I could make by swapping everything out repeatedly.

Our master bedroom is lovely, yes, but it’s been feeling decidedly bare due to a missing statement piece: the headboard. Watch Ken and I build a DIY rustic headboard with a few tools, two vintage lights and a free afternoon. Seriously. Easiest project ever. Enjoy!:

p.s. Love the rustic look? DanMade has some awesome tutorials on how to get the rough-and-tumble aesthetic we love to love.

With a little under a week to go before Valentine’s Day, I thought you might like to see something a bit less red roses and a little more home design for the big day of love.

I love my bedroom furniture. I purchased the set a decade ago, and it has withstood multiple moves, kittens, puppies and spilled drinks. But sometimes I look at my simple walnut furniture and think it’s so … blah. I would love to pull a Brian Patrick Flynn and makeover the entire set for something that matches my 20-something lifestyle and evolving taste. Something dramatic and over-the-top! Fortunately, Fast Fix Bedrooms provides 12 easy, DIY projects to turn your so-so bedroom into the snazzy retreat you’ve always dreamed of. Here are my four favorite headboard ideas.

Not to be a Grinch, but I’m relieved the holidays are over. I’m glad to go back to my normal schedule and to start thinking ahead to Valentine’s Day and even spring. This month’s color is the perfect looking-ahead color, one that embraces spring’s delicate hues, without totally giving up on the icy tones of winter. Even the name captures that it’s-still-cold-but-I’m-already-thinking-warm feeling.

What’s January’s Color?

Designing for children can be a potential nightmare for an interior designer. How do you tap into the psyche of a toddler, and create a room that will ignite their imaginations, as well as grow with their ever-evolving tastes and interests? New York designer Jennifer Coleman of JKC Designs accomplished exactly that in this magical loft space for an outgoing Tribeca four-year-old.

The room is put together but not themed. It’s age-appropriate and transitional. Enjoy Jennifer Coleman’s whimsical work on the fairy-tale loft, along with the rest of this hip family’s fun, NYC space.
