This season décor trends are all about making you bedroom more about you. Personalization, eclecticism, these are the main words we are throwing about in décor these days throughout the house, but of course nowhere in the home is more your own space than your bedroom.
And so we start looking at how we could possibly personalize our own bedrooms. Do we paint the walls, change the furniture, hang a couple personal photos, well yes, these all help, but every bedroom has that already. We’re talking about adding your personality! And this we demonstrate through the things IN the room! That ancient wicker chair in the corner that belonged to your granny says you are sentimental, the orchid on your night stand says you love elegance and delicate nature etc…
Now a really great way to add your own personal quirk to your room is through what you do to or put onto your bed. And a fabulous way to personalize a bed, beyond linen and cushions, is a headboard! Headboards make fantastic features of the bed, and certainly, if you are going to choose it, it’s going to have to be something you not only live with, but love, so it stands to reason that it’s something your personality is going to like…
Here then, are some wonderfully hot headboard ideas for you to look at, proving that a headboard does not only need to be the dull upholstered hotel type! There are many many different ideas you can apply to your room to create your own personalized headboards!
This hot headboard is made of cushions stitched together and mounted on the wall behind the bed. It looks fabulous, and of course, you can select any cushions you want. In this image the decorator was going for a minimal contemporary look, all stark contrast and sharp shapes, but really you can make this work for you what ever the look you want to create!
If you are into eco-design, this hot headboard is for you. Split bamboo poles of various lengths have been positioned behind the bed to create this headboard. Leave them tatural, paint them, it’s entirely up to you. The lovely thing about this bamboo headboard, is that with time and age, the bamboo will change colour, split, and age itself, demonstrating the very nature of eco-design.
This bed set, headboard and footboard, is just fabulous! Made from wire and stained glass this has got to be one of the hottest headboard ideas I’ve seen in a long time. Not for the feint of heart mind you, sleeping with that much glass right near your bed! But I assume that the steel frame holding it all together is very strong! What a brilliant headboard idea!
This is for those of you with a sense of humour, or for those of you over which the sides of the bed are a constant fight! It does not get much clearer than this!
A hot idea, and growing trend in home décor, is to take an image, photo etc, blow it up digitally and apply it to a wall either as tiling or wall paper. In this image, some very clever person has created a beautiful full length headboard behind a headboard by layering this exquisite bright image behind a bold red suede and studded headboard!
And lastly, if you are a sensual sort of person and not uncomfortable with a little nudity, this hot headboard is just fabulous! Made from a patchwork of small, individually coloured material pads, this headboard bares the image of a naked woman, which from close up appears completely pixilated. So definitely a headboard designed for viewing from across a space! And if you don’t really fancy some strange naked woman on your bed, remember, you can always change the image to one that suites you!
