There’s something about a wingback headboard that makes it extra cozy – those little wings on each side make you feel as if you’re extra safe snuggled up inside. Grasscloth wallpaper is also a favorite decorative accent, it’s a chic way to texture to a space or piece of furniture. I’ve had a long time design crush on textured furniture so I thought to combine the two and made this grasscloth covered wingback headboard for a guest bedroom.

Originally I contemplated four walls of grasscloth in this space but was deterred by the cost of multiple rolls and how long it would take (I’ve done it before by myself, it took a loooong time to hang it alone) and what happens if and when I sell this house? A future buyer might not be as crazy about a room covered in grasscloth wallpaper as I am.

Instead, I limited the use of grasscloth to a DIY headboard, inspired by a few accessories I’d seen around town like this storage box wrapped in grasscloth spied at HomeGoods and the mirror in my Mom’s upstairs loft, both have a gorgeous textured woven finish, divine!

I’ve always turned to paint and fabric as tools for dramatic transformations but let’s go ahead and add tile to that list too. This master bathroom vanity space has been a work in progress for six months, in it I repurposed the existing cabinet and designed around it, but the wow factor comes from this new diamond pattern backsplash tile.

This shared prep space isn’t grand in size, it’s six feet across with an eight foot ceilng but the problem was it was stuck in the late 80s with its builder grade cabinets, shiny brass fixtures, and dated vanity lights. I knew I could make it a stunner with the help of some beautiful tile, fresh fixtures and paint – voila!

Back in January, we reworked the existing vanity to create a floating vanity by removing the countertop and base and building a new support system. I also reversed the doors to take advantage of the Shaker style on the other side.

Now the style is far more contemporary!
