Angelika Magdalene Bedroom Headboard April 10th, 2018 - 00:19:11
shiplap with a twist. The designers of this wood-paneled bedroom could have stopped at a single layer of paneling and the room would have been a cozy dream space but instead they wrapped some of the planks with faux grass to add a dose of color and another layer of texture to the room.
Iron headboard. The beauty strength and value of the iron headboard and base are cherished by all those who own one. In the later part of the 19th century artisans hand poured and polished iron bed frames. When World War I started they stopped as the iron was needed to make weapons. The end of this war saw handmade items replaced with assembly line products. New iron headboards now come in many different powder-coated colors and finishes. If custom is important to you then this is the way to go. Make sure your headboard is made from cold-rolled steel as it has a higher tensile strength and will not dent like hot-rolled steel. Antique iron headboards are not cheap but they do come with a real sense of history. A new iron headboard is comparable in price to a standard timber headboard and base that don′t have a lot of carving detail.
Reflect the window. Here’s another canny use of mirror in a headboard. In this room the effect is window-like as the multipaned headboard echoes the design of the French doors. It adds light and space for sure but also creates an interesting focal point in an otherwise neutral simply decorated space. This is a great way to build in a striking design detail without adding color or visual clutter.
Play and display. This headboard unit works all sorts of wonders providing enough space for a lot of clothes storage around its edges. I also like the way it creates a tidy recess for matching built-in bedside tables — sizable ones to boot. The really good-looking part though is the shelves inside the recess which provide heaps of room for a movable art display or collection of treasured photographs. And making the wood dark and moody lets the lamplight create a supercozy soporific glow.
Divide store and conquer. This headboard houses lights shelves and drawers but look behind the bed to see its other purpose. Pretty ingeniously this headboard doubles as a low room divider. The area behind the bed is almost a walk-in wardrobe and allows the bed to remain pointing at the windows. There’s just enough room here to open the wardrobe doors but sliding doors would work in a tighter space.
Recessed bookshelf. Essentially no different from the built-in shelves you’d find in a living room or office this design deviates only insofar as it has a narrow slot for the bed to slide into.
