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.
Doors as headboards are becoming rather common but these take the concept to a whole new level. If you are lucky enough to come across pieces as wonderful as these snap them up; they will be a once-in-a-lifetime find. The enticing colors knobby studs and curvilinear carvings make these an unforgettable statement. I especially appreciate the unexpected minimalistic lamp that completes this design.
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.
