Moroccan getaway. Transport yourself to another world after a long day with a headboard representing places you’ve traveled to — or hope to visit someday. This bed is adorned with a Moroccan screen that Design Vidal affixed to the wall. Blue Moroccan lamps and tables on each side set a romantic tone and could fool you into thinking you’re waking up in a foreign land.
A couple of decades ago my husband and I went through a midlife crisis and moved to the country. The only parts of this move that were not an unmitigated disaster were: 1) our chickens and 2) the willow headboard Mike built for us from branches he took from our woods. I absolutely loved it and the style he chose defined classic country. What I love about this headboard is the wonderfully contemporary feeling it has. The linear design of the twigs combined with the neutral bedding and leather accents create a simple clean and strikingly modern aesthetic.
If there′s one room where I′ll advocate the most for drama it′s the bedroom. Your bed is the most important piece of furniture in the room in fact sometimes it doesn′t matter if it′s the only piece of furniture in the room! This bed needs to be welcoming relaxing and have a presence. A tall headboard can accomplish this. It can make a low ceiling seem higher and it can keep your bed from looking lost in a bedroom with high ceilings. It also provides a backdrop for your bedscape. I′ve nicknamed these unconventionally high headboards "Tall Boys." Take it away Tall Boys!
I was surprised to see this well-worn fireplace mantel repurposed as a headboard. it′s a really great idea that Mike and I are going to have to consider. The look you create will depend on the mantel you find. It could be a huge old oak surround antique cast iron or a brightly painted contemporary design.
