Add style to a plain wall with an extra-high patterned upholstered headboard. The blue and green flowers on this print are the perfect complement for the whimsical bedroom and make a statement on the light blue walls.
Sweet & Simple

Curvy in all the right places, this custom headboard takes its design cues from the undulating shape of the bedside chest of drawers.

A crisp white linen-covered headboard, generously tufted with dozens of fabric-covered buttons, lends subtle texture to a streamlined bedroom. Its rounded corners soften the linear geometry of the wall treatment, pinstriped linens, mod Lucite lamp, and mirrored side table.
An Updated Classic
A classic four-poster gets fresh and modern thanks to a wrapped-headboard treatment that maintains the simple lines of the original piece.
