Tuft Love

tufted headboard via Katy Elliott

While we have a dark wooden sleigh bed at the moment, once we upgrade to a king-sized bed in our new house, I'd like an alpholstered headboard.  It's exactly what a couple with a nightly ritual of reading in bed needs.  The headboard styles I am drawn to are arched and tufted in a crisp cotton twill or in a luxurious shantung silk.  While there are ceratinly ways to DIY-it (you have to check out the website Centsational Girl, and especially her post on a tufted headboard project), I don't know if I'll ever be handy with a table saw and staple gun.  I am, however, very much at ease selecting a fabric and having a custom headboard made for me.  While there are some patterns I really like (see below), I will most likely source a solid, soothing color in a brushed silk with wider tufting with a romantic frame.  This first one below is my favorite; I can't seem to stray much from my vintage French sensibilties for this anchor bedroom piece.
