I was surprised to see this well-worn fireplace mantel repurposed as a headboard. it′s a really great idea that Mike and I are going to have to consider. The look you create will depend on the mantel you find. It could be a huge old oak surround antique cast iron or a brightly painted contemporary design.
I′m advocating breaking one of my design rules. Well I don′t really believe in strict design rules but generally I try to keep big investment pieces (like beds) neutral solid and classic and bring in prints patterns bolder colors and trendy fabrics via less permanent items like rugs throw pillows duvet covers and window treatments. However these gorgeous patterned headboards have been screaming for my attention and I cannot ignore them any longer. Would you sleep beneath a patterned headboard? If so what kind of textile or pattern would you use? Let me know in the Comments section!
Match a sham or another pillow to the headboard. This will give the bedscape a continuous look vertically like these damask-pattern shams do. To tie a larger area to the bed extend the headboard behind nightstands. A bold trellis pattern grounds this bed with the appropriate scale.
Whatever you decide on consider choosing nightstands and dressers that make the room totally personal to you. And never buy a matching bedroom set from the furniture store if you want a bedroom that sings your song.
