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.
Simple in its form and efficient to the core Pass from Jesse is ideal for those who want a space-savvy walk-in closet that is easy on the eyes. With a bronze-painted aluminum frame the design of Pass allows it to be used as a self-supporting structure that can be incorporated into your existing master bedroom. With a multitude of wooden shelves custom cabinets and coat racks you can combine more than one unit to create a more extensive walk-in closet that caters to your specific needs. With a dark finish and unique appeal Pass fits in with a wide array of styles ranging from contemporary to industrial.
We constantly talk about how essential it is to repeat accent colors and unique features in a room to give the interior a more curated look. This is no different in the case of live-edge wood and the bedroom. A live-edge headboard coupled with side tables crafted from the same grain of wood can instantly give the contemporary bedroom a huge facelift. Sometimes you can head in a completely different direction by combining posh polished bedside tables with the rustic live-edge headboard but repeat the woodsy charm using a bench at the foot of the bed.
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!
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!
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.
