Play Off the Footboard
A footboard this unique needs some spiced-up artwork. Here, two natural wood planks echo the shape and orientation of the bed but add a little curve to the formality of the frame. Another benefit: Those planks fill the tall angled wall from bed to ceiling and lead your eye toward the expansive space above. Traditional artwork would have left an awkward large white area.
Sometimes all a headboard needs is a little asymmetry. Here a small print balances the bed as part of a simple asymmetrical arrangment. The black and white print and frame complement the colors and shape of the bed.
Notice how the bed is set off center from the window to the left, while the frame is set off center to the right. That one little print makes everything work perfectly — akin to a pair of diamond studs.
Again, the window is the main point of interest in this space, so a grouping of art is placed off center to balance the weight of the view with the rest of the room.
If your headboard has a unique shape, play around to emphasize it. These tiny little mirrors are the perfect exclamation point on these dual headboards.
Break It Up
If you love prints but don't want to stick with the traditional two or three prints over the bed, try breaking up the pieces in multiple frames. Fill up walls with a gallery of your favorites.
