This project isn’t for the faint of heart (or inexperienced crafter), but the result is stunning!
This minimalist approach is probably a lot easier to achieve, and since it’s made of Washi tape, it’s a great idea for anyone who rents or has limited space.

These vintage window frames work wonderfully with the mixed textures on this bed, and compliment the beautiful brass lamp!
This tufted wingback headboard is a little more traditional, but we love how the vibrant blue works with the gold accents and really brings the room to life.
