What Houzz contributors are saying:
2. Rounded backrest and nightstands. This curved headboard with storage seems to be part of the bed, which adds to its ergonomic feel. It’s packed with useful shelving, with two-tier bedside tables that wrap around the sides of the bed and a couple of handy compartments at the back. The curved top is also home to a pair of practical reading lamps. The beauty of a headboard like this is that it allows you to move the bed away from the wall. This works well when a room has little available wall space or when you want to wake up closer to a beautiful view like this one.

For those who do prefer a relaxed cottage air, a muted color adds a lot of charm, much like an accent wall, only underfoot. Try pale blue for a semineutral that will work with neutrals or other colors without clashing.Cost: Paint and a top coat will cost a few dollars per square foot, and can be applied to existing flooring (with some good sanding and prep) or to inexpensive wood planks for a new installation.See how to paint your hardwood floors
Soothing Blue-GreenWhen a touch of gray is added to a hue, you get what's called a tone. Using tones of your favorite hue is a great way to achieve a colorful room that remains calm and soothing — perfect for a bedroom. I was so drawn into this pretty room with its watery blue-greens and warm grays, I barely noticed the fabulous view out the window!
