Headboards That Turn Heads – Custom bed + bedding ideas + inspiration

Adding a distinctive headboard, whether a custom upholstered beauty or a shapely wooden charmer, gives any bedroom style. In addition to providing a practical place to recline and relax, headboards serve as a significant focal point. At ISABELLA we love guiding our customers to solutions that create a visual centerpiece for a room. Of course we also love adding all the layers too.

Here are a few inspiring examples of headboards that make a statement.

Upholstered Neutrals.

You can’t go wrong with a striking headboard in a great neutral to add dimension, depth and texture. Add even more nuance with nailhead trim or tufts. For a bedroom with design savvy, think lighting details (like these shapely lamps), fresh florals, original art and custom pillows and draperies.

Of course pretty headboards look even better with beautiful bedding … and we definitely have you covered there – from exquisite embroidered details to layers of luxe. Come on into the shop to see what’s new in luxury bedding (ssshhhh … a sale is coming soon!)

Patterned Pretties.

Add a pop of personality to a custom headboard with patterns and prints. There are endless textile possibilities. We can help you choose the right mix of colors and patterns as well as the right frame shape to best showcase your fabric choice.

And don’t be afraid of really mixing it up. Pattern play includes mixing patterns, from wallcoverings to upholstery pieces to accent pillows and beyond. We live for seeing a design through each phase, from dreaming and moodboard-making to gathering the elements to see what colors and patterns play well together.

Of course the greatest fun is putting all the pieces together and watching the magic happen. We love these mixes of pinks + greens, polkadots + diamonds, botanicals + curves.

We also love to think creatively when it comes to headboard style. We custom-crafted one large upholstered piece to serve as the headboard for a pair of twin beds in this clever mountain house situation…

Layers of patterns, plaids, and rich jewel tones create a cozy mountain hideaway.

Color + Details.

If neutral is a little dull, but pattern a bit too bold, perhaps the answer is subtle color, plush texture and attention to detail. This stunning headboard in blush velvet certainly creates a memorable moment. We also love the way the selected art pieces, draperies and accents play off the headboard color.

Wood + Curves.

If upholstered headboards aren’t your thing, maybe set your bedroom mood with curves and painted finishes. This wooden headboard provides a pretty backdrop for luxurious linens. We dig the design details of this blush bedroom, from the paint color to exposed beams, to original art and custom fabric blind. Plus that tone-on-tone pretty-in-pink lamp. So many layers of goodness.
