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.
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.
For the money nothing equals the impact you get from paint. In this case chocolate suede paint with a red border gives the impression of a substantial and scrumptious headboard in the thriftiest possible manner. Ralph Lauren′s line of suede paints is worth checking out.
Although this is a complete headboard and footboard I cannot pass it by. It reminds me that old iron and brass beds — especially if they have a headboard only — should not be excluded from this portfolio of ingenious designs.
