Upholstered Headboards

Ah, I just love the upholstered headboard look these days. My husband and I DIYed one last year that I will show you as soon as I can take some updated pics of the bedroom. But for now here is some inspiration... 

What a gorgeous neutral space this is! I love the curved and detailed ceiling, the comfy yet elegant chairs, and the starburst mirror above the bed. The euro pillows, super thick mattress, and fluffy down bedding make this room look extra plush!

Need a little Tiffany blue in your life? I love how they mixed it with ivory and black.
And that little window seat is too cute!

This headboard is all about the tufting. And can I get a War Eagle anyone?!
Auburn fan all the way here... and this is just how to make the orange and blue color scheme look oh so chic. I love the pillow combination.

Check out this red velvet headboard with white piping and buttons!
I am loving it with the coral print french stools!

Oh green... my favorite color!
Loving the nailhead detail here and the cute floating end table.

I LOVE the dark contrast the walls give the room. The symmetry in the space is spot on. 
I'm also digging the shape of this headboard. And I can't help but notice the little pop of green from the plant.

To me this room has sort of a global look - from the unique end table to the fabric on the pillows. I like the bedding and the textured of the fabric the headboard and foot board.

I think I love everything about this room. I mean it's goooorgeous! So calming and relaxing... I would love to walk into this room every night to lay my head! I mean, just look at the chandelier!

And last but not least... How fun is this room!? Love the mix of bold, funky patterns. They work well together because they're in the same color family. This would make such a cheery guest room!

Feeling like tackling a weekend project yet? There are tons of tutorials out there to make your own upholstered headboard. I'll share the one we used and show you our results soon. It's totally do-able project! The most time consuming part for me was choosing the fabric! Good luck!

  2. You know I just did a post about using a chinoiserie screen as a headboard but I think it might be best to used a short upholstered headboard and mount the screen above it. Enjoyed my visit here!
