Yoshi Tsukiko Bedroom Headboard June 02nd, 2018 - 22:28:02
Built-in canopy. This hybrid canopy-headboard has a lot going for it but the most striking feature is its integration into the room’s lighting design. Two bedside pendants provide focused light for nighttime reading but the soft glow emanating from the sides of the wood headboard and overhang boost the room’s romantic ambiance. The decor’s emphasis on texture more than color and pattern ensure that the custom bed and lighting take the spotlight.
Incorporate an outline. In this room velvet edges the patterned upholstery of the headboard creating a frame for the delicate design within. The texture along with the black-lacquered bedside tables and a gold-and-cream wall covering ups the opulence of the bedroom. Contrast piping is an alternative if you like the idea of a headboard border for a more formal look.
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.
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.
Keep illuminating company. Who needs bedside lights? Do away with extraneous objects entirely by choosing a supermodern headboard with built-in illumination — the ultimate luxury for a minimalist sleeping space.
Upholstered headboard. Upholstered headboards (or stuffers as they were originally known) became popular during the 17th century as the demand for comfort increased and draping fabric on canopy beds died out. The bedroom became more private during this time and the need to show off had moved to other rooms in the home. The choice of fabric is as important as the design of an upholstered headboard. Oils from hair and skin can quickly damage and stain a headboard. Leather is an extremely durable fabric but can be spendy. Some vinyl fabrics look just as good and can cost much less. The design of the button-tufted upholstered headboard shown considers both genders in this bedroom and has a sophisticated and elegant look.
