In the room design below the headboard shape is simple and understated in line and colour, and yet it is a very important focal point in the décor of this bedroom. The sides curve forward in the shape of a classic wing chair. The dramatic wall treatment behind the head of the bed is a graphic geometric three dimensional wall treatment. Wall colour is pulled from the drapery and cushion fabrics and the overall feeling is sophisticated and refined. Co-ordinating toss cushions in soft cream complete the look.
One of our Burlington, ON clients had us refresh her bedroom decor plan and part of this was a beautiful new headboard. The client wanted a fabric covered headboard and button tufting was a detail that she was attracted to. The result was similar to the room shown below. We also added a button tufted bench for extra seating.
Detailing in a headboard can vary in the degree to which it is used. Many times, the body of the headboard is left plain and simple but the detail is in the outline of the piece (photos courtesy of Better Homes). Nailheads reinforce the lines of the piece.
Velvet is once again a strong trend in interior design. The elaborately shaped headboard shown below in charcoal velvet makes a strong design statement which is enhanced by the dove grey wall colour.
A simpler approach can be just as dramatic, as shown below. The exaggerated height of the headboard lends presence and the button detail and formal chandelier lend a classic touch to the interior design of this room. Touches of black in the room design ground the colour scheme and add a little drama, as well as keep the overall finished look from becoming too pale.
The sky is the limit. We could have done the headboard in leather, or even faux leather, as another choice. Upholstered headboards can suit contemporary, clean lined design, as well as more traditional, ornate design. We may have also used a much stronger colour palette. The degree to which we employ colour and shaping in a room’s design is the client’s choice. Often we use textural elements and interesting accessories to achieve greater drama and focus.
An interesting headboard is just another design element that we can use to make the bedroom a welcome and luxurious retreat.
