Creative headboards for better and for worse

PB Teen Bedroom Set
Finding a nice headboard can be a challenging endeavor.  Many people just do without, but from a Feng Shui Practitioners point of view this is a big no no.  In Feng Shui headboards are not only decorative, they are also responsible for grounding the bed into the space.  A patterened “cut-out” headboard like the one featured above doesn’t do much in the way of grounding, but at least it offers respite from the cold, hard walls.

Dupen – largest collection of metal beds I’ve seen in Israel

I don’t read Hebrew very well, so it’s not surprising that I don’t get any Israeli interior design magazines (especially since most of their articles are just translations of articles from outside Israel – what’s that about anyway? There’s plenty to write about at home!)

(Now if I only had the sense to write down the name of the magazine I was looking at, oh well.) Dupen is the first URL from that list.
I don’t know where the company originates – but there’s no way it’s Israeli – every bed on the site is “dressed”.

I love the shape of the bed above, but I don’t like the actual construction of it.

The step in the back with the flowers is nice. I would lose the flamingo – but that’s just me. Pink flamingos remind me of a rather disgusting John Waters movie…
