Much like in the case of most other accent features and smart highlights it is the neutral contemporary bedroom that brings the very best out of the live-edge headboard. Thanks to both the unassuming backdrop and lack of other dramatic additions these refined bedrooms allow the headboard to make a great impression and turn the bed into the focal point of the room.
Whenever you use an accent color in the room or a unique texture that brings visual contrast it is always best to repeat it in more than one place. This gives the room more symmetry and grace. The same can be done in the case of the wooden headboard in a contemporary bedroom. Pick a nightstand or even a bedroom bench that matches the innovative headboard to give the room a more appealing vibe.
The decal below comes from Etsy shop ShaNickers Wall Decals. Purchase a decal designed specifically for headboards or let inspiration take hold and create your own design by combining your favorite decal selections.
A bookshelf headboard from Jati Belanda appears to be custom made for this bed with just some simple shelving at the top and a couple of built-in bedside tables on each side.
Regular everyday bookshelves are perfect for this idea but to step up your style you can get even more creative with different styles and even custom-made units if you’re willing to go that far. For example a very rustic bedroom theme from A Beautiful Mess Antiques uses an old weathered bookshelf with lots of old books to match the lovely country bedding.
Another modern headboard idea involves the use of decals. Wall decals are available from a variety of vendors both online and retail. From whimsical and organic to geometric and contemporary a myriad of styles suits every design sensibility.
