In this minimalist bedroom, the platform bed rests atop a beautiful dark-wood base, but it's the headboard that creates the wow factor. Designer Candice Olson uses three panels to make the wall pop: a top and bottom panel of tight-grain ash and a middle panel made of recycled pressed wood. Floating side tables with built-in sconces flank the bed.
Create dramatic vertical impact by taking the headboard to the ceiling. Designer Ann Grasso uses the two-toned headboard to help distinguish the sleeping area from the sitting area in this large room.
A huge painting hung over the sleek bed in this modern bedroom creates a dramatic focal point. When hanging a painting as a headboard, be sure to hang it high enough so the pillows won't rest against the canvas. Design by Andreas Charalambous.
Don't want a massive headboard for your bed? Define the space with framed pieces of artwork. Designer Kenneth Brown uses two small pieces of art and flanks the bed with two display cabinets to highlight the bed in this transitional space.
