Headboards don’t have to be hard or uncomfortable, and for smaller spaces, it’s sometimes better not to have a formal one at all. “For small spaces or studios, I like placing a bed in a corner and using lots of throw pillows as a ‘headboard’ so the bed can act as both a lounge/sofa alternative and as a bed for guests,” says Atlanta design blogger Jo Torrijos at A Simpler Design.
As seen on Love It or List It Too, designer Jillian Harris designed a space for the couple that blends contemporary style with a touch of the antique.

A tranquil 5-Star boutique hotel experience set the tone for this master bedroom remodel which we designed for a busy couple with kids in a Boston suburb. The master suite project involved moving walls for a closet expansion, a bathroom gut job, and removing all traces of the dark, dated furnishings that closed in the space. We used a neutral base palette with soft blue touches and layered in heirloom-quality textiles, elegant lighting, and lots of texture. The tufted platform bed and traditional fireplace serve as anchors in the room, which manages to be both spacious and cozy.
Vintage furnishings create a lived-in look and feel. The vintage chandelier and vintage French bed meet contemporary style by mixing in a Crate & Barrel table lamp, an IKEA desk chair and a West Elm desk.
