Doors as headboards are becoming rather common but these take the concept to a whole new level. If you are lucky enough to come across pieces as wonderful as these snap them up; they will be a once-in-a-lifetime find. The enticing colors knobby studs and curvilinear carvings make these an unforgettable statement. I especially appreciate the unexpected minimalistic lamp that completes this design.
A couple of decades ago my husband and I went through a midlife crisis and moved to the country. The only parts of this move that were not an unmitigated disaster were: 1) our chickens and 2) the willow headboard Mike built for us from branches he took from our woods. I absolutely loved it and the style he chose defined classic country. What I love about this headboard is the wonderfully contemporary feeling it has. The linear design of the twigs combined with the neutral bedding and leather accents create a simple clean and strikingly modern aesthetic.
The tall tufted ivory headboard here creates a strong base for a variety of patterns and a burst of peacock blue. When using a patterned wallpaper placing a significant headboard against it is a good move. It gives the bed a strong presence and keeps the pattern of the wallpaper from taking over.
Felt it. Hand-stitched felt bucks the conventional thinking of what a headboard needs to be made of. The warm neutrals of this piece mirror the other earthy textures designer Jessica Helgerson used in the rest of the home.
