Schwartz and Architecture

This 7,000 square foot renovation and addition maintains the graciousness and carefully-proportioned spaces of the historic 1907 home. The new construction includes a kitchen and family living area, a master bedroom suite, and a fourth floor dormer expansion. The subtle palette of materials, extensive built-in cabinetry, and careful integration of modern detailing and design, together create a fresh interpretation of the original design.

Your upholsterer should be able to make a headboard like this with any fabric choice quite easily.
Here is a similar one:

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Vertical lines in the upholstery add to the geometric play in this modern bedroom.
Margaret Everton added this to White Chic Done Right
This white chic space is saved from feeling too pristine with the wood structures and flooring.
Expand and enlarge. "This home's master bedroom and master bath both have a limited amount of available square footage," says Neal Schwartz of Schwartz and Architecture. "We dealt with this by treating the room divider as a piece of cabinetry rather than a traditional wall."The sense of space was further increased with clerestory windows. "Being able to see a continuous ceiling surface helps make the two rooms feel like one, and it also greatly expands the sense of space," Schwartz says.
Borrowing light — bringing light from one space to another through openings in walls or through translucent surfaces — is best achieved through clerestories, for these high openings still allow walls to be used with furniture, such as this bed. It's worth taking a look at the bathroom on the other side of the wall to see how the borrowing benefits both spaces.

Clerestory windows...I don't know. the wall looks unsubstantial. The idea, though, is that our bed should look out the windows to the view, and that would require situating the bed on an extra wall. I don't mind the coziness of the smaller bedroom space this would create.

We could do a wood and fabric headboard. That would give us the modern look but still soften it up so that it's romantic. If we do it in a cherry and pair it with matching nightstands we can pull the cherry dressers into the bedroom set.
