I’ve had a king sized bed for years, but it’s never had a headboard. And it definitely could use one to spruce up the look of my master bedroom. I’m trying to pick the right one to match the room’s decor (I am going for a retro Hollywood-glam-for-less look, a la Tori Spelling’s bedroom). I already have these mirrored nighttables from Pier 1. I’m leaning towards an upholstered headboard, either a tufted one (in a neutral solid or a soft pattern), or a linen-y one with nailheads. Which of these do you like best?
Raleigh Upholstered Headboard with Nailheads (starts at $599) from Pottery Barn
Eight Button Headboard in Pool Blue Velvet (starting at $299) at Home Decorators
Camden Tufted Brass Nailhead Headboard (starts at $359) at Ballard Designs
I also love this Colette Bed (starts at $1799) at Crate & Barrel but I just need a headboard, not a whole bed, and it’s too expensive anyway. But the lines are so graceful and elegant.
p.s. I did a google search for upholstered nailhead headboards, and it turns out lots of other bloggers have written about this decor topic. Take a look at these links for some great ideas, and eye candy, too: Better Than Colette?, Tufted or Nailhead Trim, and Upholstered Headboard with Nailhead Trim.
