A New Year Means a New Headboard?

I have been itching to change up my bedroom.
I still like it but I am ready for something different.
Remember how I got this fabric for Christmas?
I was planning on making pillows for my living room, but once the fabric arrived, I couldn’t help but wonder what it would look like on my headboard.
So, I quickly draped it over…
I had to railroad the fabric since it wasn’t wide enough, but I think it works.
What do you think?

So, let’s hear your vote:
1. Go for the headboard?
2. Or stick with the pillows?

    1) what does railroading mean?
    2) How would pillows of that fabric look with your existing bed?

    I think the headboard with the new fabric is stunning, and perfect and gorgeous.

    I think the fabric would look great as pillows or a headboard! If you want an overall “brighter” look to your space, go with the headboard. I love your existing headboard too, so whatever you decide it is going to look fabulous. I can’t wait to see what you end up doing!

    I love it as a headboard. That fabric is beautiful and I think it really brightens the space. Maybe add some navy shams and bright patterned throw pillows.

    I like the headboard either way, but it pops off the wall more with the darker existing fabric. (But the new fabric is gorgeous and would look great anywhere!)

    Happy New Year Danielle. I hope you and your family had a lovely Christmas / New Year period together.

    I love the fabric and it would make a fantastic headboard or pillows but for my money I reckon you get more wow factor from the headboard. Besides if you then tire of the headboard at some point the fabric can still be used for pillows at that point. You get to use it twice!

    It would of coarse look fabulous either way but i would use it on pillows. Its just my opinion. The light fabric headboard would light up the whole room, but I just like the darker fabric with the gold accent accessories better. If you go with the light fabric for headboard, I would change up also some accessories for silver instead of gold.

    I love the fabric. If you use it for the headboard I would tie in a darker mix of pillows and bedding.

    Happy New Years and All the Best in 2012!

    Absolutely love the fabric on the headboard!! And I think I prefer it railroaded. I think if you did three Euro pillows in the very back in a contrasting fabric your white bedding would really pop, too. The chevron throw looks fantastic in the mix!
