Remember though that the attempt here is to pick and choose décor that complements the headboard. These furnishings should not overpower the image of the exquisite live-edge headboard and take away from its mesmerizing presence. If you have a bed frame that is entirely crafted from raw natural wood then let it shine through as well by keeping the bedding as simple and neutral as possible.
Metal motifs with light themes found at a home discount store can be perfectly fixed to the walls to impart a chic look. You can frame your head boards with photo frames placed adjacently sans the glass. Cut batting the same size as the frame back and cover it with thick fabric with vibrant colors and textures. Wallpapers cut out in the outline of a headboard design contrasting with wall paint color can make it the focal attention of the room. Stencils with some spray adhesive paint and little creativity can help illustrate some creativity at the headrest. Imaginatively colored fireplace screen can be spread behind the bed for a warm feel.
Speak of space-savvy lighting and sconce always tend to spring to mind instantly as they require absolutely no foot space and are incredibly adaptable as well. Sconces in the bedroom trump pendants for when it comes to settings that are specifically crafted for bibliophiles and those who spend an hour or two each night glued to their iPads before sleep. It is flexible arms of sconce lights that make them such a hit and with the wide range of sizes and styles on offer they feel as much at home in tiny kids’ rooms as they do in large luxurious bedrooms.
Much like the bibliophiles who needs plenty of space next to their bed (and then some more) there are many of us who simply cannot work with a tiny bedside table that offers limited surface space. The classic nightstand with a couple of drawers is still as cool as ever and many fabulous designs like the MEMO Night table from Baxter also bring along with them a dash of sculptural beauty. Be it the round nightstand a mirrored beauty with plenty of glam one that is draped in golden glitz or mismatched nightstands for the couple who have different needs – the bedside table you pick is determined as much by the style of the bedroom as it is by functionality.
Suspended furniture is always a viable solution. The functionality of mini-shelves hanging on the wall is undeniable they can serve for books and for cosmetics documents or other decorative objects. One last thing you should consider. The space under the bed shouldn’t be overlooked. There’s where you can “hide” boxes of all sorts and baskets with lots of things inside.
This is undoubtedly the biggest reason why people are so head over heels about the live-edge headboard. It brings a certain rustic vibe to the contemporary bedroom and you get this without a complete makeover that costs a fortune. If modern rustic is your style then the natural-edge headboard seems like almost a must at this point! Apart from seamlessly blending with contemporary styles it also gives you great design flexibility and lets you switch to a ‘completely rustic or farmhouse’ mode with ease. Add to it styles such as industrial bohemian and shabby chic that also invite the slab headboard gleefully and you have a plethora of styles to choose from.
