Headboards are so versatile; they enable you to completely change the look and feel of a bedroom with minimal effort. From the bold and beautiful, to the subtle and refined, there is a headboard to suit every style. We are so proud of our range of beautiful headboards that we couldn’t help but write an article to show them off!
Helping you find the right style
Whether you prefer vintage, modern, country chic or luxurious opulence, we have something to suit every style. With so many to choose from we’ve pulled together a little ‘cheat sheet’ to help you narrow down your choices; we’ve looked at some of the most popular interior design trends and paired them with the perfect Dreams headboard to save you the time.
Who doesn’t want to recreate the feeling you get when spending the night away from the stresses of daily life? Boutique hotels often have a mixture of colours from the same colour palette, a slightly eclectic mix of furniture and a wide range textures to create a cosy, chic but relaxed elegance.
We love our Gransmore Headboard in Ash with its lustrous upholstered panels. The art deco shape nods back to the roaring twenties and the years of true decadence while still looking contemporary. The cool tone radiated a sense of calm, and the soft fabric finishes the headboard off to perfection, creating a comfy base to snuggle against…preferably with the addition of some luxurious oversized pillows!
Vintage country cottage
Cosy bedrooms with cream furniture and floral accents are beautiful, come rain or shine. You don’t have to have a traditional cottage to achieve the look, just the right décor and styling. Country cottages in the vintage style tend to have upholstered headboards in light, soft fabrics to complement the colours within the room and make it feel even more inviting.
The Canberra Winged Cream Fabric Headboard fits the brief perfectly with its stunning herringbone fabric and button detail. The wings on the side give that extra touch of security and make your bed feel like a true sanctuary, ideal for Sunday morning snuggles or a relaxing read of your favourite book.
This trend comes around every spring/summer and is so popular because it appeals to most tastes. Coastal bedrooms are inspired by traditional coastal villages, the sea and everything that goes with it. Think rope, driftwood, hessian and linen amidst hues of white, grey and blue. It embodies the warmer months and can make us feel like we’re holidaying abroad in our very own homes.
The Onslow Ivory Metal Headboard would be a gorgeous addition to a nautical bedroom. The ivory colour fits perfectly with the trend and the mould details are reminiscent of seashells. We love that this headboard is simple yet still has beautiful design elements to make it stand out. Wrap fairy lights around the top of the headboard for a super cosy feel and use a chunky knit throw or stripy cushion to bring the nautical theme to life.
The industrial trend is everywhere at the moment, with exposed light bulbs, wrought iron and rustic wood combining to make some sophisticated interiors. But the best way to counteract those hard materials is by introducing softer fabrics while still keeping the shapes and aesthetic of the trend.
The Iowa Woven Luxury Fabric Headboard does just this, with its contemporary rectangle shape and charcoal colour. We love the vertical piping which adds height to the piece and gives it unique detail without over complicating the headboard. Bring in some scatter cushions in pastel shades or navy blue to pop against the dark grey and add the finishing touch to your bedroom.
Botanicals are one of 2018’s biggest interior design trends, with framed prints, bedding and even wallpaper making a splash across homes everywhere. The whole essence of this trend is to bring the outside into your home, so natural fabrics are a must. In addition to plants, one of the best ways to enhance this look is through the use of wooden furniture.
Our Adelaide Headboard is perfect for the nature-inspired aesthetic as it is simple, chic and versatile. Made from solid oak, the headboard is sturdy without looking bulky and the smooth curve gives a softness to the design. Dress the bed in natural fabrics like cotton, linen and wool and complete the look with some botanical print cushions.
Make it a focal point
One of the biggest reasons to choose a headboard is to create a real focal point in your room. This is what all the rest of your furniture is centred around and the place where your eye is first drawn when you walk in. That’s why it’s so important to choose a headboard that encapsulates the style of your room to perfection, makes a statement and portrays your personal style.
When choosing your headboard, don’t be afraid to go big. After all, once your pillows and scatter cushions are placed on the bed, half of it will be covered. If you’re scared of going over the top but want to have that wow-factor, keep the rest of the room décor simple and stylish.
