What Houzz contributors are saying:
5. Let the headboard help frame the bed. Think of a headboard as the finishing touch for your bed. Without one, the blank wall behind your pillows looks sort of, well, unfinished. Whether you go for upholstered, metal, wood or woven, it’s important to consider your ceiling height, your wall space and what look you are going for — dramatic, refined, feminine or modern. Good to know: Add visual impact to even the most understated headboard by using special fabric and adding luxurious details like nailhead trim, tufting, borders or contrasting piping.
2. Bamboo tray table + petite ceramic lamp. A bamboo tray table makes an elegant nightstand, but a large lamp would overpower it, and a task lamp would look out of place. Instead, choose a small-scale ceramic lamp with an empire-shape shade, which is larger at the bottom and best for casting light where you need it.
A petite tray table with a small drawer has just enough space for a colorful lamp, fresh flowers and a small jewelry box. Boxes of any style are great for holding earrings and necklaces taken off just before bed.
