Agafya Larisa Bedroom Headboard May 28th, 2018 - 01:45:55
Set the tone. The boho pattern of this headboard works with the stenciled pattern on the walls a geometric rug and stripes in a combination that’s colorful and pretty. Borrow the idea of a winged headboard like this one to create a super-comfy spot for bedtime reading.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
