We sleep on the Family Bed, which came around the horn in 1865 on a Clipper Ship and was taken to Boise Idaho by mule train. I dress it in brilliant crumple-dyed yellow cotton to combat the cloudy skies north of Seattle. The matching dresser & mirror sit at the foot of the bed. Lamps have mica shades for cozy warm light in the evening.

An interesting selection of bedroom photos with some great ideas! I loved the bold ones (2,15), noticed the ones with whole walls of pictures felt too much (16,30), loved the colourful (9,43) and fun (6) ones. Wouldn't have considered a black wall but with the white wicker bed it looked great (9) although would still probably choose a different deep colour, one looked like a bed had been placed in a bathroom, too clinical for me (48), loved the sumptuous but interesting (14) ... and some were too plain, too busy, too heavy, over-styled, impractical for me (I like proper bedside tables next to both sides that are easy to reach) but overall interesting and wonderful to see. So nice not to have a sea of 'neutral'. and also loving the readers pics so adding my own although still in progress (tropical bedding an attempt to combat homesickness for Sydney in a grey London winter!)

Well, many of these are clearly not in earthquake country. Having grown up in Southern California, I would never hang ANYTHING heavy over the head of my bed.

renee58 I'm not in earthquake country but I don't feel comfortable having something hanging over my head while asleep either. I understand feng shui convention also suggests this isn't a good idea. I think it also detracts from the bed.

Some are to my taste; some not, but what struck me was with what a delightful diversity we address this human requirement.

A comfortable place to sleep, lighting, place on which to put things. That is the same, but look at all the different ways we did it. All are different.

My bed has been in the family for nearly 175 years. I sometimes think how much the bed's environment has changed and the history of its occupants. Even since my grandmother gave it to me 30 years ago.

I really enjoyed the article. We should have even more of these anthologies showing how different people have designed the same space. Isn't that one of the main reasons we visit and participate in Houzz?

I previously had a Houzz dilemma where fellow Houzzers suggested I use this antique prayer rug as a headboard. I've really liked it used in this way.

So much fun to compare the wide range of bedscapes - especially because each photo has been taken from the same angle. That photo continuity makes it easier to imagine how to approach similar spaces in very different ways. This article sets my creativity on fire!

Definitely interesting to look at all the different photos shown here, but I must agree with many of the comments, and say that none interested me much. The very last photo is the only one that had any "wow" factor IMO, and it definitely wasn't my style. But a lucite bed? Never seen that before. I will have to reassess my own bedroom before throwing any stones, but while I understand wanting a peaceful and restful place to lay your head, does that have to equal boring?

These are old garage doors cut and made into a headboard. I found them outside an old barn from 1920. The owner didn't want them so I took them, 7 layers of paint later.....

none of these photos really resonate with me. a bedroom is a very personal space, so that shouldn't be a surprise I suppose. if I had to pick one, it would be number 7, 25, or 33.

I love love loved #34 - using tiles to paint your own way. I've been looking and looking for artwork for my walls, and this could be great, instead of buying a painting/picture. I might not do the entire wall, but place the tiles in some other artsy way. But I like being able to buy some little paints from Michael's and away I go! The outcome possibilities seem endless. But I need to figure out where to buy blank/white embossed tiles - they don't need to be tin. Home Depot? Maybe good ol' Michael's again . . . oh dear, my idea is shot if I can't find the right "canvass". I need to do this for a song. I have way more time than money.

I love the idea of using different materials to create a headboard, certainly it's better than buying a particle board bed/headboard that seems to dominate the furniture market today. Favorites 12, 13, 16, 23, 25 and 32. Pet peeve in many of these photos....choice of lighting that's too large for bedside and use of art that's too small in scale.

While many rooms are not my style (I'm sure they suit somebody), I am inspired by several! I'm alerting my daughter as some headboards are similar to an idea she has for her own headboard. The wall of tin squares is an idea I may use in a completely different location: my foyer! I have one wall that needs an overall cover. I had thought to use reclaimed wood, but darn if I don't like this idea! I'm afraid my own (steel) headboard is rather plain: a roadside find requiring much sanding. Somehow I just can't give it up! This photo was taken to show off my newly-painted floors. The bench is half a coffee table too big for the living room with back legs added. Needs repainting as the color was a clear miss. The cushion is made from a heavy cotton runner found at Goodwill. The (old) rug beneath the bed is to keep storage containers from scratching the floor; you take storage where you can!

We scored this architectural salvage piece while we were living in Shanghai... snagged it right off the truck as it was arriving at the antique store. We had the platform built and color matched to the piece to create our bed. We loved the colors in the carving.

llanel2002 . Google, then alternate between images and shopping submenus. Find someone who will rent your space in a kiln and make your own (if they are just going to be a headboard, they won't get the usage of commercial tiles.)

I liked the concepts of 17, 25, 32, 33, 43, 45, 49, 60, and 85, but I'd use different colors. A few of these bedscapes didn't look very safe, though. Lights draped over an upholstered headboard? Picture frames over where you lay your head? If you're going to show possibly dangerous things, at least explain how they were made safe.

Did not like one of these bed scapes. Bedrooms, in my opinion should be restful and free of distractions. These were all so busy with such strong colors. But, the beauty of decorating is expressing your own personality which these clearly show.

Interesting that we just upholstered our existing headboard this past weekend. It is a curving headboard that had a shinny finish that would mar easily . The result came out quite good in our opinion, only cost about $100 for materials and about 8 hours of work.

While they're not as nightmarish, but with the exception of about 1/2 dozen of this batch of beds, if I just walked into the room and looked at all the mismatched , silly busyness it would jangle my nerves and I'd still have a hard time getting to sleep. eeeek.

Most of these are awful! Many of them commit nearly all the 'sins' of bedroom design... hard surfaces, bare bulbs/bright lights and little to no curtains to block light; high-contrast colors that hurt your eyes just looking at a picture of them (let alone sleeping there). The math one is just a nightmare waiting to happen (I hate math though, so maybe that's just me... heavy thinking before bed though - yikes!).

I do like a couple of these, but the majority look painful. What with all the horse ones?! To each their though own I guess. The ones with padded headboards though are practical as well as nice looking: sound absorption near your head can help your sleep.

For sleep and relaxation-styled surroundings you can find design tips nearly anywhere that generally all say the same things over and over: think lots of greens and blues - pastels if possible - colors and art to make your setting as serene as possible; softness everywhere, dim lights and a couple of sets of curtains, at least one heavy and lightproof if possible. Nearly most importantly - keep it a sleep-only space if possible! Don't use it as your office/workroom/living room, assuming you have more than a one-room place. It's hard to relax in the same room you work in, you know?

There are some interesting designs here. Upholstered headboards never appealed to me, as I saw the finish on our maple headboard dissolve where my husband's head touched. Apparently the hair product he was using caused this, and I shudder to think what would have happened to an upholstered piece. Greasy spots galore!

Hi , love all the bedrooms especially the DIY and refurbished wood headboards. We have the oriental MCM vibe going in our home. Attached a few pics. an antique oriental tea table is mounted over our teak bed w/ floating nite stands. The colors are all shades of green. Behind the bed is a deep dusty turquoise by Martha Stewart. When the sun comes thru the black metal blinds the room is bathed in a relaxing water green...wonderful!

Wow, out of all those bedrooms the only one that caught my eye was #31.....makes a person really appreciate their own bedroom for what it is. Also, as I was looking at all these beds it occurred to me that what you really want in a bedroom is what you see from when you're "IN" the bed, not looking at the bed. For example, if you're home all day, alone, sick, what are you looking at? That seem to matter more to me than what's over the head of the bed.

I could never have any of these in any room. I constantly re-arrange my furniture and these would prevent me from doing that. My husband once said he would be scared to walk in our house without turning on a light if he had been gone for several hours. Re-arranging things make them seem new to me and refresh my living space. A room that had only one wall for a bed would do me in!

While there are lots of ideas here, my favorite rooms were #s 12 and 68. (I also liked #s 25, 27, 33, 39, and 42.)

If I might commend one of my own idea books on Houzz which deals with "sleeping spaces"... You may perhaps find other ideas for your own space.

I also like having a "view" across from the bed. Will never have a tv in the bedroom, but I am planning to stencil that wall opposite and have my daughter paint some nature inspired artwork to hang for the "view". There are windows on the other 3 walls for their view to pastures, pond and trees.

Also, lively fabric stretched over a simple homemade frame to size (large or small) offers a great chance to decorate the walls with little investment. Material can be changed out to change the look, or the season.

I also don't like anything overhanging the headboard, i.e., shelves of any kind. I don't see lanterns being practical; don't light a thing except the ceiling. Never have liked them. And hanging lighting installed from the ceiling makes them a permanent structure in the room, and the bed cannot be placed somewhere else. I would install lighting on the wall or on a table, but not hanging from the ceiling in the bedroom.

Most are just too "busy" for my taste. I like the bedroom to be simple which = relaxing to me. As someone else mentioned, any of the ones with anything above the headboard is a bad idea in SoCal. That's why the otherwise lovely London flat with the artwork leaning on a ledge above would never do (#21).

This is a bedroom I designed and built for clients in Oregon City, Oregon about 10 years ago, but finally photographed it yesterday. The project included this bedroom suite as well as her office, and furniture for the living room. the home sits on 20 forested acres with a beaver pond and a fruit orchard situated within the fir forest. I was asked to design something that reflected the beauty of the trees. For this I tapped my earlier Contemporary Art Nouveau style furniture designs to suggest the branching and vine like surroundings.

Sorry to say this, but most of the bedrooms featured in this article are much too busy, fussy, colorful, (noisy) for my taste. Except for a very few serenity, elegance, beauty and comfort are missing from the room in which we spend most of our time every day. I love my bedroom: everything is white except for some of my favorite paintings and photographs and the gorgeous constantly changing bay view.

Thanks for all the pictures & ideas. For my preferences, I'd choose 9, 28 & 36. I've no headboard now for SEVEN YEARS because it's a difficult decision for me. My husband couldn't care less so I've no pressure to decide faster!

  • I was given this beautiful vintage Sarape and teamed it with vintage Arizona / New Mexico travel souvenir pillows. The Georgia O Keefe print helps bring in color tomSouthwestern design .

Better Homes & Gardens Real Estate - Masiello that bedhead is amazing ... my 7 year old nephew would love it, although he's into real sharks at the moment! (His dad is a deep sea fisherman) It's great to see some fun being had. Thanks for sharing!

Hey Alfred welcome!

That is one amazing bed! It looks like it belongs in a museum. It's definitely not to my taste but I suspect the right person would love it. Is it your bed? Where did it come from, who made it? Questions, questions, questions!

It's a queen-size bed in the form of a Viking-boat bed. Custom made, only 1 in the world, made out of mahogany wood.

I recently was commissioned to stage a property for real estate sale. I used only re purposed materials including this headboard that was constructed using a door, half an old frame, hubcap, metal scraps and a broken chair to create my masterpiece. All the pillows used here were from a local thrift store along with the bedding. You can view the entire home by this link if you would like to see more http://restoreandrework.blogspot.com/2014/06/just-beautiful.html

Tight budget and boho vibe, you can't see the antique light fixture from this view but my dog Oscar at the foot of my bed is the best. Garage sale batiked bali dancers print, a hip scarf from my belly dancing days, and a couple of veils frame the bed I made from a stock deck railing and 2x10 base as a 'faux' platform for the bed. Even the side table/bookshelf is a hand me down with a nice Moroccan shape and the spider plant on the funky wall shelf, also a second hand find. The chair on the back side of the bed is from my second hand dining table which came with 6 chairs.

Houzz TV folks... This has to be one of your best. I can see each of these in it's unique home easily and the thing that made this so delightful for me was your music selection. As a retired musician I was completely caught... hadn't experienced that in years. Thank you for a job well done!

Hi,
no it was for sale. I tried to buy it, I found it on "Marktplaats" a
sort of Dutch Craigslist. I contacted the seller. I speak fluidly five languages and can sort of understand at least eight,
but let's say that communication wasn’t the best. What I did understand was that
the bed was in Riga (in one of these ex-Russian countries, so why putting it on a Dutch local site and not on international eBay?). At the end it
was all too fishy. First pay 3.500 $ (before negotiations), no creditcards, and then wait if it
ever will arrive from more than 2000 km away? Mmmmh, just a little too much.
But I'm planning to handcraft a similar thing for my guesthouse myself. People love
originality, special on holidays coming from overseas, and they only stay for a couple of days! I like original/creative
things (I have a original 9-feet Totempole from Vancouver Island in my garden overlooking the lake). BTW, my bed will of course be quit different, but I liked the basic-idea and it looked well made.

Very interesting article on the many choices one can make in their space to rest; as a minimalist, I have arranged my bedroom to sleep and rest only without distractions.


The actual simple headboard is covered by pillows which is a personal choice of style.


-- a oversized cozy chair on the side is set for reading my favorite books.


The armoire keeps the "everyone must have a TV" hidden... to view only in emergencies. Bottom line -- For sleeping, "It's all about the bed".

With such an extensive collection, I was surprised so few were appealing and started to wonder whether the repeated shot angle was the problem. Only a few bedrooms lent themselves to the format; the moody Vancouver space comes to mind. Too bad.

Oddly I didn't like very many of these. Good reminder that sometimes simple is best.

Many of these spaces are vertigo inducing! A lot of people liked #12 but although serene it looked cold. And that wood platform?....I'd be doing a header into the bed after stubbing my foot. After looking at them all, I went back to take in details instead of overall and found many many decorative things liked. Pillows, chevron lamps, other lamps, paintings, wall colors....

#11 is sophisticated, beautiful, simple, soft and relaxing. Not a fan of clutter, gray and brown darkness, boxy boring bedside tables with little style, cutesy headboards or wall decor made from junk, Bohemian hippy dens, ugly retro-looking done-to-death geometric and lattice fabrics, overuse of pattern and color or attempts to look cool/urban. #11 is the clear winner.

I loved this article. What creativity and diversity! Our headboard is an old Sunday School screen that I had been carrying with me for years.

I'm sorry but I thought that these were some of the weirdest bedrooms I ever saw, but I'm more conservative. No offense to anyone...just how I feel. I know I'm a little boring to some, but that is okay...we all need to decorate the way that makes us happy.
