architecture and the unusual colours used for these buildings. The textures and colours are the main inspiration for my art and I love to feel the
warmth and happiness when entering a room, surrounding yourself with lovely accessories in a room will create this. My home has a touch of the mediterranean in each room!
Create your own headboard
One idea I had whilst in Spain was an unusual way of creating a ’headboard’ for the bed, I didn’t want the usual
padded headboard found in most stores,I wanted a more individual look.
To achieve this look you will need:
A curtain pole
Rectangular shaped foam (Dunhelm mill have various sizes available,which is easy to cut)
If you are good with a sewing machine I am sure you will have no problem covering the foam to make two
rectangular ’cushions’. If not, you may have to ask someone to make the cushions for you.
You will also need to add the tabs to the cushion as these will then be used to hang the cushions from the
This really is a great way of adding style and individuality to your home, you can choose from some fabulous
fabrics but I would suggest going for a slightly heavier fabric as this will give a more upholstered look.
Once you have decided on the fabric, why not send me a sample for some custom made 3d wall art,
this will finish off your bedroom beautifully.
There are some wonderful curtain poles around with an excellent choice of finials. I went for the spanish look,
wrought iron is widely used in Spain especially in staircases. This kind of look will never date, it may not be in
fashion now but I don’t always go for what’s in fashion, I go for the things I like, creating a more individual look
with things you love is what makes a home special.
