New Upholstered Headboard, Pillows and a Window Treatment

Upholstered Headboard & Pillows (2)I seem to be drawn to tufted furniture. There’s something quite romantic about it, don’t you think? My Pinterest boards seem to reflect a love of tufting as well.

While not all tufted furniture has a feminine quality, like my friend Jenni’s velvet headboard and footboard, I do think it adds a touch of romance to a room.

In fact, this romantic velvet headboard was our main inspiration as we began choosing the fabrics and trims for Jenni’s pillows and window treatment.

Master Bedroom PillowsJenni found her tufted bed at Ballard Designs. This head board is the Camden upholstered in Queen’s Velvet Teal. (The fabric color on the website shows very different from the actual swatch so make sure you request a sample first.)

Upholstered Footboard

Absolutely gorgeous!

Pillow Trims & Ruffle Details

We choose a chocolate brown crinkle velvet, a red velvet , an aqua harlequin print, a shimmery tan and other fabrics in shades of linen and white.

Ruffled Pillow

The aqua ruffled pillows are standard bed pillow size and made from the tucked sheer fabric we used on Jenni’s stairway landing window treatment.

Custom Ribbon Trimmed Sheer with Medallions Monogrammed Pillow

This is still one of my all time favorite fabrics. I love the shimmery threads woven throughout this fabric. We decided to make a tone on tone, king size, monogrammed pillow as the front and center accent pillow for Jenni’s bed.

Pillow Details

Using leftover fabrics I had enough for the front of the pillow to be from one piece but not the back. Here you can see where I pieced the back side of the pillow and then top stitched on either side of the seam for a bit more detail. Actually on a king size pillow, I prefer doing something like this on the back side just to break up the wide expanse of solid fabric.


The center back pillow is 27″ feather euro flanked by 2 @ 24″ feather euros. The two white with aqua ruffles are 20″ x 25″ standard feather bed pillows with the center monogrammed pillow a king size feather bed pillow.

Upholstered Footboard and Window Treatments

Jenni’s window treatments are made from an ivory sheer we lined with a cotton linen instead of regular lining to give them a bit more body. The upper portion of the panels is made from tan fabric embroidered with brown dots, hung from hand painted medallions and finished off with a brown crinkle ruffle and fringe.

Window Treatments Master Bedroom

Jenni’s original thought was to go with all white and neutrals for her bedding but soon realized her need for color trumped the neutrals. :)
But just imagine that blue velvet bed piled high with light and airy shades of ivory and white! Stunning! She definitely has a great beginning for a “summer look” if she so desired!
