shutters. Once an item that you might find discarded on a roadside or buried in piles at the architectural salvage depot shutters are now a hot commodity at flea markets. If you’re going for the bohemian look find a pair that really shows its age with exposed layers of paint such as this example in a Los Angeles bedroom.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
