Leggett & Platt Pinterest Challenge

OK, folks. So here’s the story:  I was approached by this adjustable bed company and like most of us that saw those commercials for them in the 1980’s wasn’t exactly thinking it was for me. I mean, i’m not old, i don’t have back issues annd i’m not old.  BUT part of being a designer is not being snobby and being open to everything, if it’s a good product. So i tested one out and fell in love.  It makes it so comfortable to read, be online and watch TV in bed, plus it has massage settings, which is quite the luxury.  It’s not so much that i’m pushing for people to buy these luxurious adjustable beds, but their whole campaign is about creating a bedroom that feels like a haven, a room that you love, that you relax in, that at the end of the day you feel totally calm and comfortable in.  



For me, this means really soft bedding, a soft mattress, low lighting, a comfortable rug and now i have this awesome adjustable base which lets me lay with my knees slightly raised above my waist to release my lower back and it feels oh so good.  You can use whatever mattress you already have, this is simply selling the base and headboard, which looks like this:




You can get whatever size you wan 


















You can have whatever size you want, twin – king, and you can use the mattress you already have, the giveaway is not for a mattress but for the bed base (which is upholstered in the same fabric as the headboard) and the headboard.  It’s up to a $3500 value.  That’s a lot of value, folks.  

CONTEST ASSIGNMENT: Create a Pinterest pinboard featuring images for a bedroom for one of the following themes:  1) Coastal Getaway; 2) Modern Elegance; or 3) Eclectic Inspiration.  You must include at least one image of a Leggett & Platt adjustable base from either the Facebook contest, and you must include a minimum of seven additional images from other sources that complete the selected theme.

    "My charming coastal retreat: I would use it to recharge myself away from the husband & kids, curling up with control of the remote, a novel, or a pile of magazines. This is what it would look like: The adjustable bed with upholstered headboard, beautiful DIY ruffled quilt, pair of mismatched DIY ombre dressers, pink crystal chandelier mounted onto an inspired ceiling medallion, a few pieces of charming DIY wall art, and a well worn, but newly painted pink door to close." ;) Amber Hamilton Henson

  4. This was the perfect nudge I needed to pull all my ideas together for our new bedroom. Now I'm so excited! Having just moved in, it's the perfect blank slate right now–great antique bones, no substance yet. Winning this would be amazing (both for the room and for my back!) Thanks for the opportunity, Emily.

  5. I had soooo much fun putting this together. I seriously want to buy the wallpaper now and start redoing my real bedroom. I thought about trying to stick to a realistic budget but then I found some fun pricey stuff and said, "aw f^(k it." It's nothing that couldn't be pulled off on a budget, though. I hope you like it!!

    Thanks for the opportunity


  6. Thanks for this awesome contest! I love the room I made! it's inspiring me to make a board for each of my rooms in my new awesome Mid Century Home! Hopefully they can be goals to head towards as my hubby and I start to design our living spaces :) thanks again
