Go headboard...less!!!

No headboard?  No problem.  Here are a few of my favorite alternatives to the traditional headboard that pack some major style punch!

Statement Textile

Hang a beautiful tapestry, large blanket/throw, or even a flat-woven rug to add color, pattern, dimension, and texture!

Accent Wall

Create an accent wall for your bed using wallpaper, paint, or a stenciled design!

Oversized Pillows

Prop some larger pillows (euro size works great) against the wall, and layer with varying pillows of different scales and sizes!

Gallery Wall

Create a focal wall as your headboard by adding a photo/art gallery!  Just make sure the frames are securely fastened to the wall.  Allow a little "head room" so you can sit upright comfortably on the bed.

Paint It On

Draw and paint your own headboard!  You can also use decals.

Overscaled Art

Large, overscaled, "quiet" artwork helps create a serene and calm background in the bedroom.  But you can also inject some pattern and fun with a colorful piece of art.  No need for a headboard with an overscaled piece of art!
