Because it's just so darn sexy. It's even called Hollywood Headboard. For the glamorous star in all of us!
I stumbled upon this fabulous headboard while I was wandering about the web, looking at stuff like iPhone and Kindle (this was for work), disability insurance and FTC disclosure policy (this was for blogging business) and the various blogs I love (this was for inspiration). Then I saw these headboards (thanks, Charmaine!) from Kat Burki. Here's a blue version. Not as striking as the kiwi one, right?
Anyway, Vince has always wanted one. Well, not always, more like ever since we started watching Mad Men. He's been bugging me that this is what we need for the bedroom (check out a photo here). We actually saw a headboard like the one the Drapers own in Rustan's Makati but at PHP 48,000, that was a bit insane.I wasn't a fan of the Draper headboard--I didn't like that sea foam green. Yeah, I couldn't imagine it in any other color. Vince was suggesting red or blue or purple. I was appalled. Then I saw the Kat Burki headboards and now I've changed my mind! Now if I can only convince the hubby that it looks best in creamy white...Classic yet sexy. Love it! Now I just need to find me a good carpenter, get some Daphne Linens and dress in a filmy nightgown and voila! I'm Betty Draper! Although I don't know if that's a good thing--despite her perfect life, she's such an unhappy and discontented wife. I guess it's the same old story tackled by Revolutionary Road... and we really don't want that, do we?
