When I presented this headboard to the client, it had all the elements she wanted, a focal point for the room and place to provide comfort for her and her hubby. But what I did wrong was the introduction of a diagonal diamond shape in the button tufting. Although it matched the traditional style-it’s look was not soothing enough-the diagonal lines contrasted with the rest. We opted to leave this element out of the design and provide a wood headboard with pillows, which was practical as well. Perhaps down the road we will add a simple horizontal squared built in headboard behind. The room still needs a tall element behind the bed to act as a focal point and visually support the sloped ceiling.
