Pump Up the Volume 

An extra-high headboard and luxurious folds of fabric create a sense of grandeur in this bedroom, making the room feel bigger. European pillows, which are oversize and square compared with standard pillows, emphasize the height of the headboard.

Big Personality 

Add style to a plain wall with an extra-high patterned upholstered headboard. The blue and green flowers on this print are the perfect complement for the whimsical bedroom and make a statement on the light blue walls.

Back in Black

Go bold with a chic black headboard. Wide bands of color are repeated motifs in this room on both the drapes and the black upholstered headboard, drawing the eyes upward and raising the visual height of the ceiling. A big round mirror in a chunky frame can add sparkle and a sense of expanded space to a small room.

Reflecting Glamour

A crisp white linen-covered headboard, generously tufted with dozens of fabric-covered buttons, lends subtle texture to a streamlined bedroom. Its rounded corners soften the linear geometry of the wall treatment, pinstriped linens, mod Lucite lamp, and mirrored side table.

An Updated Classic

A classic four-poster gets fresh and modern thanks to a wrapped-headboard treatment that maintains the simple lines of the original piece. The fabric, a cotton-linen print featuring parrot tulips, injects color and life into the softly whitewashed space, providing the room with a vibrant focal point.

Sweet & Simple

Too many patterns in a small space can feel claustrophobic. Here, a pretty purple geometric fabric draped over the headboard is all the design needed to create a bright and happy vibe. For a quick change, switch the fabric for a new one and get instant results.

Block Party 

Unbleached linen partners with richly stained walnut planks for an elemental, almost Zen-like headboard. The expansive unit is actually two pieces: a wall treatment with three pop-out fabric squares and a king-size headboard whose slipcover can be easily removed and laundered.

Striped Headboard

In this airy loft bedroom, a headboard covered in lime green and ivory striped fabric fills the wall with a graphic, beachy appeal — perfect for the gridded floral duvet and red pillows with green pinstripes below.

Natty Neutrals 

Layers of touchable texture mix and mingle around a basic natural-linen headboard. The vintage hooked wool rug framed and hung above the bed inspired the collection of pillows, including quilted silk, tufted cotton, and crewelwork pieces.

Delicious Chocolate

Mocha tufted-silk upholstery on a wraparound painted headboard gives this sleeping space a cocoonlike feel. The simple texture of the fabric-and-wood frame contrast with the linen’s woven details and the grass-cloth-covered walls.

Dreamy Diagonals 

Tone-on-tone harlequin-pattern silk influenced this headboard’s angular shape as well as the room’s shimmery color scheme. Crisp linens and a Lucite lamp take their cues from the silver diamond shapes, while the fringed trim, custom-pleated shade, and sharkskin-wrapped side table connect with the fabric’s ivory portions.

Fresh Floral 

Relying on one pretty floral for the walls, upholstered headboard, and shirred details, this bedroom feels layered yet pulled together. Spring green fabric piping and delicately embellished bed linens contrast with the print’s sweetness and lively color.

A Strong Theme 

Generous padding, ivory linen upholstery, and painted nailhead trim update an ornate rosewood bed while preserving its graceful shape and intricate details. Red-and-white toile — vintage and brand-new pieces — provide color and pattern.

Simple Storage

The shape and dimensions of the cabinet doors flanking this contemporary room divider/headboard unit inspired its grid of six upholstered rectangles. Clad in creamy Italian leather, the rectangles add natural color and warmth to the sleek silver bedding and white lacquer cabinetry, keeping the modern aesthetic approachable.

Luxurious Pattern

Curvy in all the right places, this custom headboard takes its design cues from the undulating shape of the bedside chest of drawers. Piping detail gives the piece the look of a tailored mat and frame, while a simple bed skirt in the same yellow-and-silver damask extends the refined yet contemporary look to the floor.

Opposites Attract

Add drama to a bedroom with opposites. Here, a simple monochromatic color scheme for the bedding stands out against the bright blue patterned walls, creating a rich contrast. The white-and-brown upholstered headboard takes center stage in this bedroom. Solids and patterns coexist to create a formal yet fun design.

Cool Contrast

Blend rounded lines with straight edges. The circular pattern on the headboard and bed skirt creates a striking effect with the rigid lines of the square headboard. The result is an eye-appealing balance that makes a big impact in this room.

Simple Accessory

Drape a bold-color fabric across a simple white headboard for an eye-catching effect. Here, the burgundy fabric on the headboard ties together the burgundy in the throw pillow and books. An antique mantel aligns with the windows to visually expand the space and provide storage on high.
