Three Cracking Headboard Ideas

When it comes to decorating a bedroom, we often think about the sheets, the bedding, the lighting, but more often than not, it's the headboard that steals the show. Deciding on a look or style for a headboard is a very personal choice and will vary depending on whether it's the master or the guest room - you might want to be more daring in a space you don't have to live in everyday. These three looks range from the sophisticated and classic to the daring and quirky. If you want to have a little fun with a guest bedroom, why not draw a headboard onto a blackboard panel, framed with a vintage thrift find? Then in your master suite you can go down a more grown-up route: achieve a glamorous look with an ornate headboard upholstered in silk. What tips do you have for making a feature out of a headboard?

  1. All of these are fabulous! I've been dying to go the Anthro route in our bedroom, but am worried the chalk dust might be too much. If only I had a guest room... :)

  3. Will- you always find the most fabulous things! I've never seen anything like the first picture, but I actually really love it. The yellow one is to die for, too. I just love the unexpectedness of it!

  6. Yes, the first one would be fun in the guest room. I wonder what messages would be left by the visitors!

    I personally love plush headboards. So comfy when reading.

  7. The first, chalkboard one looks very cute, but I do not think it could be functional.

  12. I love all 3 options! I have been trying to figure out how to upholster a headboard like the one in the last photo, on my own, but I might leave that to the pros!

  16. All three of those bedrooms tickle my belly. I keep wanting to be more bold in ours but something about appeal of soft romance holds me back. (I do have a yellow duvet in the guest room though!)

  17. the headboard/ blackboard idea is super cool, but I agree with Bethany, the chalk dust kills it for me... Not really relevant but I really like the cushions and bedspread in picture 1.

  19. Will, have I mentioned that I LOVE your style?! The silky yellow headboard is bold and simply oozing glam. Stunning!

  20. That gorgeous confection of silk still gets me every single time! And don't even get me started on the double headboard (it might be a new favorite!).
