Upholstered Headboard Inspiration
Upholstered headboards can be both beautiful and practical, providing a comfortable place to lean while sitting up in bed, and as a design element for injecting pattern, color, or both. Conversely, a solid headboard against a patterned wall can serve as a place for the eye to rest. Interesting shapes, button tufting, and interesting trims are all ways to up the design ante of your upholstered headboard.
The shape of this headboard is so unique. The wallpaper is stunning as well!
A simple upholstered headboard in neutral linen with nailhead trim always looks crisp and elegant.
This neutral headboard really pops against the dark wall. The symmetry of the two nightstands makes the room feel even more formal.
A traditional wooden bed gets a twist with an intricately shaped upholstered backboard. The duck egg blue color scheme works beautifully with the dark rich wood tones.
An arched button tufted headboard in smokey lavender adds instant romance and drama to this feminine bedroom.
A winged headboard feels like a cozy little nook all by itself.
Using a natural fabric in a warm tone like linen, canvas, or even burlap adds another layer of texture to the room.
Pattern on pattern can work as long as the scales are not too similar. I love how the designer trimmed out this headboard in a cord that pulls in the blue from the walls.
The headboard is a great place to introduce a bold accent color like the red orange in this room, which looks beautiful against the muted blue walls.
