Josie's new upholstered headboard
After months of discussion, Josie's new headboard was installed, yesterday.  Thank GOD!
I've been hearing about that silly thing.... for years. 
In all honesty, I think that the final result is great.  Though the plan is to reupholster the plaid chair and to find another ottoman or bench for the end of the bed, the overall look of the room is certainly coming together. 
A few of her design sources include:
1.  Headboard:  Custom, 64 inch, herringbone pattern, off white chenille with brushed nickel nail heads from Carol Fuller in Charlotte
2.  Sheets: Sferra
3.  Comforter/shams: Legacy home
4.  White sham: Ralph Lauren
5.  Lamps: Carolina Pottery
6.  Side table: vintage
7.  Juju hat:
8.  Curtains: Green Dupioni silk, hidden rod pocket
And, a little side note....
Historically, my nemesis has been patten matching.  How in the world do you manage to have a room with stripes, checks, solids, and florals without it looking like a hot mess? 
Well, here is an easy trick.  To figure out patterns, take a photo of the space and convert it to black and white.  As you can see, the concept of multiple patterns in Josie's guest room actually works very well.  (Shhhhh....don't tell her!)  While it won't help determine a color palate, it certainly helps to see that multiple patterns can exist in a space without competing with each other. 

See... that litte trick works like a charm. 
Josie and yours truly at the NC Outer Banks a few months ago. 
Congrats on the new room, Josie!
