 "As an interior designer...I  can present design concepts and collaborate with you, my client...to avoid surprises and disappointments. FORM, FUNCTION, COST....are the factors which are present when I begin a project.  From beginning to end....the design process has quality, expertise and professionalism".       

                                                                                                                                               Paula E Broghammer, Allied Member ASID                                                

        Upholstered Headboards...Upholstered Beds.. a STATUS SYMBOL for 2015!!



No matter what other furnishings 
may be in a bedroom, the bed is still going to be the piece of furniture which makes a statement.  So, if the bed is going to be the first thing people notice, why not use it to make it the focal point?

Custom Image Interiors can help do just that, starting with our sixteen different styles of upholstered headboards for beds, each available in three sizes. Whether the preference is one of our simpler offerings, or one of our more elegant headboards, the shape and style selected can serve as a blank canvas. Your individuality and taste will come out through the fabric and trims you choose.


 Choose a fabric from our selection of prints, silks, solids, stripes, plaids, suedes, velvets and wovens. Or we can use  COM (Customer’s Own Material) to match or complement the fabrics already being used in the home and we’ll apply it on any of our upholstered headboards.


 This client wanted to accent an iron room divider behind the simplistic, modern, unique headboard design.  The completed project was given an overall A+.  The linen, woven fabric comforter enhances the design.


 With our extensive selection of headboard styles, fabrics and options, Custom Image Interiors can turn a bed into the focal point of any bedroom – and help you make a design statement that is uniquely your own.

 

From the simplest of designs to the most elegant headboards, our options make the possibilities virtually endless. You can contrast your favorite patterns, or choose a style with luxurious tufting. Accent the headboard with matching or contrast welting. Or pick a wood-framed headboard that mimics a fine antique. 



        Design TIPS for SPRING 2015! 

 Sure Footing!    On a shower stall floor,  'grout' equals traction.  Choose tile wisely....and opt for a mosaic;  therefore, creating more space for the grout to adhere.....for a non-slip grout surface! Say goodbye to hazardous slippery shower floors!

                                                 A PERFECT MIX!!!!



 Annoying Angles!  Sunshine from a single window can make applying makeup or shaving.....a challenge for all. To even out illumination, flank the medicine cabinet with frosted glass versions of your lighting sconce choice. A simple pendant light, hung from ceiling, can also diffuse the intensity of 60 W bulbs and cut the glare.

 

 NEW......FABULOUS FLOORS 2015!!!  Painted Wood Tile...any color, any style!!! 

              You choose the color and style....we'll do the rest!!   Unique FUN!!
