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.
Mantel me this. The design team at The Old Painted Cottage takes its company’s name seriously; just look at this headboard made from a 6-foot-wide fireplace mantel. An upholstered center ensures that pillows don’t fall into the surround’s empty cavity.
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.
