To Headboard or Not to Headboard?

April 21, 2010 | By | Comments (0)

For the first time in my life, I'm considering buying a headboard. In the past, I've always skipped over that part of bedroom decor, because I normally hang artwork over my bed. But with my new set up, and relatively new bedding , I think might actually need a headboard. Take a look:


I'm going to have night stands on each side of the bed (another first for me), and I just feel like something's missing. I wouldn't be able to do a tufted headboard–that would compete with the pintuck duvet. I considered creating a painted headboard, but my inclination is to do a bright color, and I'd like to keep my bedroom calm and kind of neutral. So I'm kind of at a loss.

What do you think I should do? Do you have a headboard in your room?
