Currently Jamming to: “How Soon is Now” by The Smiths
I have seen so many great projects lately around the web featuring DIY custom upholstered headboards. These look great, and can be made very cheaply depending on the supplies used. Likewise, I have seen some stunning professional headboards floating around. This upholstered headboard trend has come back with a bang! Don’t get me wrong, they’ve been around for years. However I’m starting to see more and more head boards covered in a bright, bold print instead of a standard tufted neutral.
Here are some gorgeous headboards covered in bright bold pattern. Please don’t lick the computer screen although I know it will be tempting. Your gonna have to Windex it later and I’m sure you don’t need another thing added to your to do list.
I believe that I’m a prep at heart and I can’t help obsessing over this bedroom. SOOOOO CUTE! And clearly the headboard is a stunning focal point. I’m loving the pattern and the pink piping. Its very Lily Pulitzer so I of course love it.
I love this orange and pink paisley pattern. It looks stunning with the wall sconce next to the bed! I’m loving the bold colors and pattern found in the furniture pieces and accessories of the two images. Both use white neutral walls paired with bold color in the other components of the room.
I’m in love with the white buttons and piping on this bold orange headboard. I also really like the shape!
I had to throw a pretty white one in there, and this definitely fits the description. I would be scared to even walk into this room for fear I would mess something up. That being said, I think this a perfect room for a young child! HA! It would be ruined in about 20 minutes.
Onto the DIY’s! I have seen so many good ones to use as tutorials! I wish I could make one of my own because I definitely would if I had the right bed frame. I have a low Ikea platform bed with no box springs. I would love a larger, taller bed, but I feel like it would make my room appear much smaller. I digress – back to the DIY’s!
This is my favorite that I’ve seen so far. I LOVE the shape and fabric choice. It looks like it was a professionally made headboard! Great job Kristin! See her comprehensive tutorial over on The Hunted Interior.
This one is really unique! It covers a huge part of the wall instead of a normal sized headboard! It really reminds me of Serena Van Der Woodsen’s headboard wall from Gossip Girl (good show, watch it!) except more vertical than horizontal. Find the tutorial over at House of Fifty.
This one has a simple shape and color, but I still think it looks great. This is a good option if you’re not a hardcore DIYer and want to dip your toes in a bit before jumping into the ocean of detailed projects. Find the project over on Thrifty and Chic.
So basically I love all of these headboards, professionally done or not. I need to look into getting a bed that would work with one of these, because I’m in love with all of them!
