With just a few metres of a great fabric you can transform a tired uninspiring bed into something sensational by adding a stunning headboard like this one, which is upholstered in Thibaut's Imperial Garden design.   Large bold designs such as this are particularly effective as the flatness allows you to see a dramatic design in more detail.  Be bold don't be boring with your shape and have fun choosing the fabric,  pick something that works with the design, this one is really quite theatrical and takes on a 'costume-esque' look.

Thibaut have some phenomenal fabrics which would be perfect for a snazzy headboard, you will be spoilt for choice.  Add in some well chosen cushions for the bed and take a 'less is more' approach with your window treatments so they don't compete for attention with the headboard.  

You will need a great upholsterer to turn it into something this special - guess what? - we have an amazing fella -who can do just that!
