We finish off today’s journey into the world of brilliant beds and headboards with a collection that seems to fit in with almost any style you have going at your home. Beds and headboards in back shades of gray and blue are both timeless and incredibly versatile. The black bed can anchor a breezy and airy modern bedroom and can define its style and theme in an instant. Bed frames in bluish-gray are a hot trend and they tend to deliver that elusive balance between colorful zest and refined panache. Even if they are not all that spunky they make up for it with sheer longevity.
If there is one trend in bedroom lighting that has caught on pretty rapidly in the last couple of years it is the use of pendants as bedside lighting. Bedside pendant lights save precious space free up the bedside table surface for and allow you to illuminate even the tiniest of bedroom corners with ease. Of course the look as beautiful in larger bedrooms as they do in small apartment bedrooms and you can even combine a couple of small pendant lights or try out cascading chandelier look to take captivating bedside lighting to a whole new level!
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.
We did already allude to the big reason why live-edge furniture and features like the reclaimed barn door are so very popular again. Many of us want to discover and re-discover our roots and once again find that connection with all things nature-centric. This means bedrooms are increasingly becoming less sterile and more cozy with each one having a personality of its own. Instead of trying to mimic the ‘catalog version’ homeowners now want bedrooms to reflect their personality and to act as relaxing getaways that transport them into a different dimension. Live-edge headboards definitely are a big part of this tranquil image!
One of the biggest perks of a live-edge headboard is the exclusivity that it brings to the bedroom. If you are really good with DIY skills (say intermediate-level skills) then crafting a stunning piece of headboard from a slab of wood is barely an issue. It is a DIY project that you can easily try out at home. The hardest part is of course finding that mesmerizing slab of wood that you absolutely adore. Once that is done everything else becomes a whole lot easier. If you really are not the DIY type then you can even order a one-of-a-kind bed with a live-edge wood frame and headboard from sites like Anthropologie.
Headboard is a part of the bed you have probably underestimated. Nevertheless it provide you with comforts of half sleep a afternoon nap and resting on your pillow case while lazily reading a book or watching TV. With a little skill of sewing and creative selection you can play games by making some exquisite designer headboards with ease. It is time to tap your creativity to make your bedroom more cozy and relaxing.
