A headboard done right can be a great focal point for a bedroom. Headboards are no longer just wood or metal framing behind the bed; now they are beautiful pieces of art, any of which you can create yourself!

Here are seven of my favorite headboard concepts from around the web:


This year headboards are all about textures and dimensions. This two-dimensional headboard wall provides a touch of depth to the room.

The hanging photos give off the illusion of a headboard, when in fact there’s nothing but pictures and string there. This frames the bed and still creates a beautiful focal point, even though it’s only a headboard conceptually.


These beautiful stones not only add depth but they also evoke a nice sense of tranquility.


This headboard is nothing if not textured! Even though this room has a lot of cool stuff going on in it, this spectacular headboard is the focal point.

Art is a big headboard trend this year. Just make sure it’s not too delicate!

This is an absolutely stunning headboard! I’m a fan of the white on white but you can do this with any color and in any design.

I love this tapestry-turned headboard! It’s elegant but also pumps some gorgeous colors into the bedroom.

Do you have a headboard like any of these above? Which one is your favorite?
