I was surprised to see this well-worn fireplace mantel repurposed as a headboard. it′s a really great idea that Mike and I are going to have to consider. The look you create will depend on the mantel you find. It could be a huge old oak surround antique cast iron or a brightly painted contemporary 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.
A beautiful slab of wood becomes a unique headboard setting the stage for a naturally elegant and simple bedroom design. Whenever I see this photo I want to begin redoing a bedroom immediately emulating this look. The design plan took full advantage of the architectural features of the room repeating the shape of the arch on the upholstered headboard. There is a wonderful sense of coziness created by tucking the bed into the alcove.
