A burl wood headboard and antique nightstand feature carved botanical motifs that tie in with the room's bedding and art. In this whole-house renovation project, the homeowner wished to incorporate some sentimental pieces while creating an overall space that's light, bright and updated.
This rustic lodge-style bedroom contains an antique iron headboard and footboard. A wood plank ceiling with exposed timbers, wide plank hardwood floors, ticking stripe window treatments and painted nightstands complement the bedroom's relaxed rustic style.
This guest bedroom chock-full of unexpected design items is at once quirky and layered with depth. Hitting an antiques store when decorating a room can provide endless inspiration and help you define your space -- take, for example, the old tuba and the antique fan made into a wall clock. Both are fun and youthful -- and may be cheap additions that provide endless personality.
Behind the headboard, a mural of an 18th Century map of the coast of Maine sourced through the Library of Congress acts as the focal point for this bedroom design.
The space is actually quite small in footprint, but has so much volume from the high ceilings. Addressing the headboard wall in a unique and dramatic way seemed to be the only way to fully design the room.
In the bedroom, designers blended the homeowner's collections with a more contemporary color palette. The headboard of this bed is made from two antique Chinese doors which are complemented by the tall antique candlestick and the Chinese statue that is featured in front of the window. These elements, combined with neutral walls and tan curtains give the space a light, yet still elegant feeling.
The wall molding adds visual interest to the solid yellow color. A striped and floral headboard and matching draperies complement the wall color and add feminine touch to the space. An antique portrait is framed over the bed, and a metal and crystal chandelier adds elegance to the room's delicate patterns.
Architectural relics from 19th century France were upcycled to make this canopy bed which features an upholstered headboard and damask duvet cover. Pastel shades of blue, rose, gold and peach are repeated in the walls, rug, bedding and furniture. The polenta armoire dates to the eighteenth-century Italian and is from the Piedmont region, south of Milan.
With a patterned headboard, cream-colored linens and a cozy throw, this bedroom is both charming and comfortable. A dark wood nightstand showcases an antique lamp, fresh flowers and a colony of ceramic rabbits.
A burlap canopy and bed hanging evokes casual countryside style and enhances a new four-poster bed. Susan Sully, author of “Past Present: Living with Heirlooms and Antiques,” which features the home of architect Norman Askins, says accessories like the brass candlestick and hurricane lamp are inexpensive and intensify the style of the room.
With a 4,366-square-foot floor plan, this townhouse had plenty of space for five bedrooms. Thus, an upholstered headboard, midcentury nightstand, antique dresser and faux-fur rug create an eclectic spot for guests upstairs.
Whimsical white headboards pop against the dramatic pinstripe wallpaper. An antique trunk serves as the nightstand between both beds. Simple black and white bedding doesn't compete with the matching-toned wallpaper.
