Just because it's in your bedroom, doesn't mean your headboard has to be a snooze. Get the designer look at the head of the bed with these four headboard designs.

If your bed already has a headboard — but that headboard is putting you right to sleep — take a cue from designer Cindy Rinfret and embellish the bed with extra fabric.
"This was a boring bed that needed more visual strength," says Cindy, author of Classic Greenwich Style. "To add drama and make the bed the focal point of the room, we created a cornice of hand-painted wood that looks like painted-metal tole. It really dresses up the room."
This sort of bed treatment — the technical name is a "tester" bed — creates the same feeling similar to that of a four poster, but is less massive, Cindy explains, and also requires less fabric, which can be a plus if budget or allergies are an issue.
To make this tester pass with flying colors, Cindy selected a print linen from Colefax and Fowler, plaid taffeta from Travers and a trim from Clarence house. The effect is very feminine, but not too fussy.
