Bedhead Luxury

My favourite Bedhead Style -Tailored, Timeless, Streamlined & Versatile
(Private Home, Southern Highlands NSW)
Private Residence, Kyneton, Victoria (featured in "Australian Country Style" Nov 08).
An elegant, classical design, & the classic check ensures timeless appeal

Private Chalet ("Cote Est" Dec 08)

I love this bedhead, it makes such a statement, but is another example of timeless appeal by way of the simplicity in the design, & the understated sophistication in both the fabric & colour, just divine.

"Groom's Cottage"- St. Agnes Homestead, Kyneton VIC

Simple, strong, balanced. The height & stud detailing of this linear design creates a very strong & rather masculine statement, but the softness of the lighting creates a perfect ambience that is both inviting & aesthetically balanced against the scale of the bedhead.

Yes, my favourite colour palette, so relaxing, light & luxurious, whites & naturals, soft textures. Not everyone wants their bedhead to make a statement. For some, the aesthetic appeal is all about the bedlinen, & the bedhead serves purely as unobtrusive headboard behind the pillows. Depending upon the ceiling height & size of a bedroom, I always think that if you are going to have a bedhead, it should still be part a feature, even if a subtle one. In this case, I think another 30-45cm would be a perfect height, still making the bedlinen the feature, but the bedhead would frame it beautifully.

Private Residence France ("Cote Est" Dec 08)

Chic, sophisticated, divine. The stunning upholstery against the raw stone creates a gorgeous statement of contrast.
