If you are even a tiny bit interested in interior design, you will have noticed by now that geometric patterns are everywhere: diamonds/gems patterns, and hexagons are a hit. Of course, you won't use too many in the same room, but you may go for two or three different items such a piece of art, a decorative object, a candle holder, a ceiling lamp, or a table lamp...
The next example is a DIY from A Beautiful Mess, check it out!
The fearless could extend the trend to the flooring. An audacious move, but Oh my so beautiful:
Hardwood flooring in an hexagon shape:
Concrete and brass:
The latest floor trend is astonishing: the 3D pattern.
So, would you commit to such a floor or play it more safely and go for geometric items in your home? Or are you over the geometric trend already?
When I decided to make a bedhead, I had in mind to sell it. But then, a major problem occurred: I loved it too much to let it go.
Now, here is how I did it:
I bought a plywood board, standard sized, in a Norwegian hardware store.
I figured out the shape I wished for the bedhead. Here you can be very creative or keep it simple.
I found some examples of different bedhead's shapes on Pinterest:

Remember this post from a couple of months ago? The one where I was asking for advice in the choice of fabric for a DIY bedhead? Well, I have finally finished the project and I love it! My first intention was to sell the bedhead but I changed my mind and decided to use it in our bedroom. I think it gives it a more grown-up look and more elegance.
Our bedroom is in the basement so it doesn't get a ton of natural light. Unfortunately, it is easy to give up on the styling side, but yesterday I took a couple of hours to make a few small changes. I think that it made a difference.
Here is the bedroom before the updates:
The bedroom now, with the new bedhead:
I had a small table from Ikea on hand, it works nowf as a nightstand.
The mirror is from Ikea too, but no longer available.
The table lamp is Tolomeo Tavolo from Artemide
I need to find another nightstand for the right side of the bed. For now, I use a pouf and a tray.
The art is paint on fabric and was bought ages ago in a gallery in Spain.
Here are the before and the after pictures again:
In my next post, I will explain how I made this headboard. Stay tuned!
