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.
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.
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.
Build in a shelf. These boxy salvaged-wood headboards give this twin guest room a warm atmosphere and a grown-up feel. But they are also chunky enough to provide a much-needed horizontal surface in a teeny space where almost everything apart from the beds is wall hung. A table or shelving at the far end of the bedroom could get in a guest’s way so the extra space created by the headboards is a design luxury. And in a guest room especially a place for a welcoming vase of flowers is worth creating. The ideal headboard shelf should be deep enough for a cup of tea a pair of glasses a mini lamp or a book.
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.
There’s no doubt that adding a headboard to a bed will boost the impact of the natural centerpiece of a bedroom design. Make it a patterned version and the effect is even bigger. Floral or geometric small- or large-scale the prints make these headboards’ presence felt in all the right ways.
