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.

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.

Take the rail way. This isn’t so much a headboard as a built-in storage unit with a bed tucked inside. It shows that shelving isn’t the only open storage that can be built into a headboard. Here there’s also space for a hanging rail. It’s not full wardrobe scale but it’s good enough for last night’s clothes a pair of bathrobes or an overnight guest’s garments. Above there’s space for extra blankets towels or bulky luggage while directly over the bed there’s room for a lamp. Using the same color throughout the room has prevented this multicompartment headboard from looking too crowded.

Put a twist on tradition. A small-scale floral is a country favorite but here it’s almost entirely limited to the tall headboard making the pattern stand out rather than join an exuberant mixture as might be the case more traditionally. The result is resoundingly modern. Both the cerise of the chair and the lime of the curtains are reflected in the headboard pulling the look together. Tip: Want to use a tufted headboard? Keep it shallow if contemporary is the way you want to take the scheme or deep for a more classic look.

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.

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.
