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.
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.
You can invest so much effort in bringing home the perfect mattress that fits your physical needs but if it’s not matched with a headboard that meets your aesthetic wants even the most comfortable bed in the world won’t draw you in fully. Complete the package with a headboard that allows you to enjoy a bed’s visual and tangible comforts in equal parts.
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.
