For a more relaxed atmosphere, you can find colors from whites, ivories and creams to pastel shades of green, blue and pink. Also look into choosing a fabric that matches other fabric colors in the room. As opposed to the more sedate, "sleepy" soft tones, don’t be afraid to venture onto the "dark side" and choose a darker and heavier fabric for your headboard. Darker fabrics work very well in a larger master bedroom that already is quite dramatic or romantic. Deep blues, magentas and greens can be very effective for getting this effect.
A versatile choice for those seeking a headboard is the headboard book case. This is particularly great if you are a young child, live in a dorm, or want to show off your book collection. If you also find yourself living in a small establishment and need the shelf space, here’s an answer to your problem! One other thing to consider is the paneling on the double headboard. For a stark contrast, you can have a fairly plain paneling with a natural finish, or a dark finish. There are also leather paneling options that can go with several different styles. Wrought iron and metal-work headboards are great for those seeking a truly unique look for their bedroom. You can even request to have a metal headboard made just to your liking, so put your design skills to work.
