Bring flowers. In a mostly white and pattern-free room a floral headboard stands out. The effect here is one of natural abundance with the riot of blooms and foliage bringing life to the cool calm room but the blue-only tones keep things transitional rather than cottage-y. Note how the geometric patterns of the pillows dressing the bed tilt the balance to the contemporary too.
Iron headboard. The beauty strength and value of the iron headboard and base are cherished by all those who own one. In the later part of the 19th century artisans hand poured and polished iron bed frames. When World War I started they stopped as the iron was needed to make weapons. The end of this war saw handmade items replaced with assembly line products. New iron headboards now come in many different powder-coated colors and finishes. If custom is important to you then this is the way to go. Make sure your headboard is made from cold-rolled steel as it has a higher tensile strength and will not dent like hot-rolled steel. Antique iron headboards are not cheap but they do come with a real sense of history. A new iron headboard is comparable in price to a standard timber headboard and base that don′t have a lot of carving detail.
Create cupboards. The designer of this cute cottage-y room in a converted Cotswolds England house has made nice use of the narrow alcoves on either side of the bed. Pretty but hardly a new idea right? What makes this design sing is the simple way the rustic headboard has been built as part of this wooden architecture. Plain vertical planks not only connect the spaces at the head of the bed making the arrangement look as if it’s been there forever but the uprights over the bed are cleverly topped with a narrow shelf just wide enough for paperbacks and a framed picture. This idea is great if you don’t have much space for bedside tables or don’t want to clutter them up. Just make sure the edge of the shelf is flush with the rest of the headboard or it will be very uncomfortable when you’re sitting up in bed.
