Brigida Elettra Bedroom Headboard May 26th, 2018 - 10:39:23
Whatever overall look and feel you want for your bedroom the right headboard can give you all the rest and relaxation you deserve. Headboards can stand alone or work just as well with a base. With origins dating as far back as ancient Egypt and Greece this pivotal bedroom piece can dramatically alter your bedroom′s comfort and design. Whether you choose iron timber or upholstered a well-designed and well-made headboard can become a lovely heirloom for many generations to come.
Keep it crisp. A neat geometric pattern for the headboard echoes the symmetrical chests of drawers bedside lamps and mirrors in this quietly luxurious bedroom. For a design that’s equally tailored opt to finish a patterned headboard with studs like these.
World map. I love the idea of using a large mural as the backdrop to a bed especially in a smaller space where it can distract from the diminutive size of the room. Here a vintage world map imparts grandeur to this masculine bedroom and adds some faded neutral color to balance the cool steely grays.
Stretch out. This off-center headboard does a great job of creating the illusion of more space in this compact bedroom. Rather than stopping at the edge of the mattress it continues beyond it on one side to fill the back wall — tricking you into seeing a king-size rather than a double bed. If you apply the same rule to clothes it works in much the same way as the classic illusion of skin-colored shoes equaling longer legs: By not breaking up a line you naturally extend it. And here the headboard also houses a reading light plus there’s space for a little table.
Stay sharp. This room turns the pairing of floral headboard and geometric pillows on its head with painterly blooms on the pillows and a tailored design on the headboard. In a warm color the headboard ensures that the room is a cozy haven without compromising the smartness of the design. Want to make a high-ceilinged room feel warmer? Follow this room’s lead with a cocooning dark neutral for the walls. With crisp white for the ceiling and molding the period features are still noticeable.
Headboards can be a simple decorative detail or a handy surface to lean on for late-night reading — but they can also be so much more. So if you’re in the market for an upgrade tap into the possibilities for this piece of furniture and consider choosing — or designing — a headboard for your bed that will provide anything from extra storage to a mini gallery or even expand the sense of space in your bedroom. Let these ideas inspire you.
