(This is the way it should be!) Bedrooms in white and gray are unsurprisingly the popular choice here but you can even couple this headboard with bright hues like purple and blue.

If you’ve got a lot of books why not just stretch your bookshelf headboard as far as you can? Here’s one featured on The Design Files that has little book cubbies built around the whole wall of a bed.
The simplest of headboards is all about putting ergonomics and practicality ahead of ornate patterns and flowery designs. Contemporary headboards rely largely on colors such as gray and white along with the use of uncomplicated straight lines to get the job done. You can try different variants in this regard but make sure that the basics of it remain the same.
A live-edge headboard coupled with side tables crafted from the same grain of wood can instantly give the contemporary bedroom a huge facelift.

Stencils add definition and polish to painted headboards. Make your own stencil or choose from many designs for sale through a variety of vendors. The tall turquoise headboard below (left) can be created by painting a rectangle on the wall with the help of a carpenter’s level and painter’s tape to keep the edges straight. Adding stenciled details finishes the project.
