Head Bored

I am bored with the fact that we don’t have a headboard in our bedroom and want to do something fun.  We have a sleigh bed in the guest room and it’s well…..eh.  Thought I’d share some amazing headboards I’ve come across for inspiration.  I always fall back on the idea on doing something french country-ish, but then also love the idea of a very bold headboard (to really tie the room together, haa!).  We have grey paint in the room with white trim, so really it’s anything goes.

This is very romantic and not really my style but love the linen material of this headboard with the studs (and the pictures hanging on either side of the bed).  I would do a navy and white comforter cover.

I nearly died when I saw this.  Very bold and dramatic, and love the idea of twin beds in the guest room.  Orange and brown,  Very 70s! If only Studio 54 had a hotel, this is how the rooms would be decorated (with mini disco balls hanging over each bed).  Orange is probably my favorite color and I love this idea.  If I had a city town house somewhere, these might just work!

This was kind of a “holy sh*t” moment when I first saw this photo in the new issue of Rue Magazine online.  OMG, everything pulled together I looove.  The suede headboard. The monogram comforter cover.  The chandelier.  The framed mirrors behind the mirrored side tables.   It’s chic, simple, dramatic, and very clean all at once.  The combination of white, navy and grey is fabulous.

This mirror over the bed is simply stunning. It gives the room a bigger, airy feel and looks like a fabulous antique find.  The mix of materials here (the various woods and mosquito net hanging over the bed) gives the plain white wall and comforter a little pizazz. Apartment therapy online has a lot of cool do it yourself headboards and the creativity is endless.

I think of this headboard as kind of crazy luxury.  It’s very over the top, decadent yet beautiful.  It reminds me of a chic hotel room and love all the sharp angles.  The mirror adds a little flair to what could other wise look like a flat wall and gives it a unique dimension.  At first glance, the room can look busy but the more you look at it, it seems perfectly balanced.  And hey, more is more.
