Paint a Wall Instead of Buying a Headboard
In a pint-size room where the bed takes up most of the space, roll with the dimensions and make the bed the clear focus. Back it with a striking color (here, Arsenic by Farrow & Ball) rather than a bulky headboard, and pile on pretty prints so the eye zooms right in. Opt for “shrunken” furniture and accessories that won’t compete for attention or feel overwhelming. Tucker chose quirky pieces with small-scale, Alice in Wonderland charm. Because the bedding connects to the wall color, the room feels like a single thought.
