A headboard is an easy way to add drama to a bedroom. Forget buying a bedroom suite. Forget even buying an entire bed frame with headboard and footboard. Think outside the [sleeping] box and consider the options available to you. With a little forethought, and some fun shopping around (or fun constructing on your own), you can create a headboard like no other. Take a look at these inspirations.
So retro, so cool. This green leather adds nice color and a bright shine for a happy good morning. Isn’t this bedroom unique?
Take a look through flea markets and antique stores for a headboard that needs some love. Re-cover it with fabric that will add life and individuality to your space.
Traditional charm here. This headboard is surprisingly easy to make. It’s really simply an assemblage of painted wood and molding. So refined, so easy.
Add drama with drapery. Here a high-contrast color stands out, but consider also adding a velvet or more substantial fabric in a similar color as your walls and bedding, creating smooth continuity.
