Go bold and go for height — dynamic fabrics and exaggerated verticality on a headboard can change the entire feeling of a room. These brilliant textiles add to the Moroccan style of this home and the wall behind them painted up to chair-rail height tricks the eye distorting how we perceive the colors and proportions. Extend the headboard to new heights to show off a beautiful fabric on it and your shams. It would have been a design travesty not to show off this beautiful suzani fabric.
Four tufted panels create a very tall headboard. This is a good trick for matching the scale of a room with very high ceilings bringing the bed up to chandelier height. Similarly when confronted with the vast spread of concrete and high walls in this loft an attention-grabbing headboard keeps the bed from getting lost and looking puny. Adding sconces over the matching nightstands visually extends the width of the bed. Together these moves create one big piece that can stand up to the scale of the room.
A beautiful slab of wood becomes a unique headboard setting the stage for a naturally elegant and simple bedroom design. Whenever I see this photo I want to begin redoing a bedroom immediately emulating this look. The design plan took full advantage of the architectural features of the room repeating the shape of the arch on the upholstered headboard. There is a wonderful sense of coziness created by tucking the bed into the alcove.
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.
