Karen Cooper, a DIY blogger from Atlanta, used a stencil to create a simple, but elegant vertical design behind this basic headboard without spending a lot of money. The darker shade of the design pops against the light background on the wall without competing with the patterned pillows on the bed.
Huge windows with accordion blinds allow for full control of the natural light into this transitional bedroom. A dark orange accent wall adds depth to the design without being overly bright. A large tufted headboard folds at the corners to fully enclose the bed space. Yellow accents on the bed add the perfect touch of sunny color.
Bold black and white wallpaper creates a dynamic focal point in this light-filled bedroom. Hung on just one wall, the wallpaper draws attention to the bed without overpowering the otherwise white-walled space. A vivid yellow headboard holds its own against the paper's strong pattern.
Pops of blue found in the velvet accent pillow, upholstered headboard, and bedding add color to the space without feeling overwhelming. Hints of brown in the pillows and bedding play off the wooden guitars hung above the bed and add visual continuity throughout the room’s design.
Long, sheer curtains create privacy without blocking all natural light from this bedroom. The white leather headboard rests against a light-colored woodgrain room divider creating separate sections while keeping the room open. Art above the bed adds a pop of bright color to the neutral room.
An ornate four-poster bed serves as the focal point to this master bedroom suite. The subtle mix of patterns in the headboard, throw pillows and bedding add a soft, textural interest without overwhelming the space. The tree house ceiling creates contrast against the simple white walls and floor.
A faux fur throw, blue comforter, gray throw pillow and navy tufted upholstered add color and texture to the smooth white surroundings of this bedroom. Small picture frames lined above the headboard add a personal touch without straying from the minimalist approach. Matching nightstands and table lamps sit on either side of the bed.
This bold bedroom embodies style and grace. The black-and-white contrast is timeless, and the design reminiscent of Hollywood glamor. The white tufted headboard provides a comfortable backdrop for reading in bed, and the modern globe fixture provides light without taking up precious space on the side table. Multi-patterned pillows, which can be changed out seasonally, create a punch of funk in the otherwise-neutral room.
