Bring flowers. In a mostly white and pattern-free room a floral headboard stands out. The effect here is one of natural abundance with the riot of blooms and foliage bringing life to the cool calm room but the blue-only tones keep things transitional rather than cottage-y. Note how the geometric patterns of the pillows dressing the bed tilt the balance to the contemporary too.

Canopy with headboard. In the 13th century the canopy or tester was born out of necessity and then popular for its grandeur. The canopy was suspended from the ceiling beams using ropes and fabric was then draped over to act as insulation against the bitter winter cold. When gentry traveled between their city and country homes they frequently took beds with them. Portable beds were known as trussing beds. Staff was assigned to dismantle transport and then assemble them again. The canopy headboard shown is a modern take on a medieval design. The scallop edging on the canopy harmonizes with the timber fretwork on the headboard. The amount of fabric and the detail in the canopy design make this a more expensive style. If you find an inexpensive fabric that you like both sides of you won′t need to line it which can keep costs down.

Fourposter with headboard. The 15th century saw the invention of the fourposter bed. With or without draping fabric this design became the rock star of the furniture world with only the truly wealthy owning such a status symbol. Ash mahogany and oak were just a few of the timbers used during this time. With reproduction furniture the harder the timber species the more expensive the piece will generally be. More intricate designs tend to add to the overall cost too. This Juliet-style reproduction fourposter with canopy and headboard has delicate gold-painted details giving the room a worldly sophisticated feel.

Wood slab. While many headboards are primarily decorative they become functional when you add reading lights. Wood provides a more solid surface for mounting than fabric or metal; this live-edge slab imparts a nice balance of modern and rustic to this Colorado bedroom.

Combine patterns. In this room the curvaceous headboard’s floral-and-foliage motif provides a contrast to the sharp lines of a striped wall behind the bed. Curves are easy on the eye and the softer pattern plays up the comfort of the bed. Get the look by choosing a headboard shape that features curves rather than a regular rectangular. Also there’s an art to mixing two very different patterns: To avoid a jarring vision choose prints that share at least one color and whose shapes vary in scale or intricacy.

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.

Create cupboards. The designer of this cute cottage-y room in a converted Cotswolds England house has made nice use of the narrow alcoves on either side of the bed. Pretty but hardly a new idea right? What makes this design sing is the simple way the rustic headboard has been built as part of this wooden architecture. Plain vertical planks not only connect the spaces at the head of the bed making the arrangement look as if it’s been there forever but the uprights over the bed are cleverly topped with a narrow shelf just wide enough for paperbacks and a framed picture. This idea is great if you don’t have much space for bedside tables or don’t want to clutter them up. Just make sure the edge of the shelf is flush with the rest of the headboard or it will be very uncomfortable when you’re sitting up in bed.
