If there′s one room where I′ll advocate the most for drama it′s the bedroom. Your bed is the most important piece of furniture in the room in fact sometimes it doesn′t matter if it′s the only piece of furniture in the room! This bed needs to be welcoming relaxing and have a presence. A tall headboard can accomplish this. It can make a low ceiling seem higher and it can keep your bed from looking lost in a bedroom with high ceilings. It also provides a backdrop for your bedscape. I′ve nicknamed these unconventionally high headboards "Tall Boys." Take it away Tall Boys!
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.
Headboards are a critical part of bedroom design. They are often the first thing you see when you enter the room and the most dominant. Just as the front door makes an important public statement about who you are the headboard makes an important personal statement about who you are. Consequently it′s a terrific place for letting your creativity soar and your imagination take wing.
Sometimes a bed placed in the center of a room takes up too much space or just doesn′t look right — but simply shoving the bed into a corner can be awkward too. Designer Carla Aston came up with a great solution while designing a teenager′s room for a show house: Customized dual headboards on an upholstered frame keep the bed tucked neatly and comfortably in the corner while creating a casual lounge-style space.
