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.
If you like crazy quilts you will love this. Although you could accomplish a headboard treatment like this with a quilt these are actually fabric samples that have been collected and inventively mounted to create a colorful welcoming anchor for this bed. Critical to the success of the design is the unexpected piece of art integrated into the composition. The trio of ruffly throw pillows restates the color story while adding more texture and variety.
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.
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.
