Whether you're going to
for your bedroom, or you're trying to work with what you have, designing
a bedroom around a dark wood headboard can be both challenging and exciting.
If you aren't careful, you can end up creating a gloomy space by going
overboard with dark tones. On the other hand, creating just the right
balance that coincides with your décor tastes can result in a truly
delightful room that is perfect for its intended purpose. Here are a few tips.
Establish Your Style
If you're working with an existing headboard, you'll have to determine
which range of
complements what you have. For example, it's difficult to create an
ultra-modern room if you have a Victorian-style headboard, but a transitional
theme is totally doable. If you're planning to buy furniture, think
about the overall feel you'd like the room to have before you go shopping,
with that no matter how pretty something that doesn't match might be.
Choose a Palette
For modern styles, stark contrasts like black against white, or bold shades
that make an impact are the way to go. Shabby chic, beachy, or rustic
styles require more earthy, natural tones. Soft shades in the colors of
your choice work well for transitional styles, while pastels and neutrals
are excellent for conservative or traditional styles.
Select Your Accessories
You may want to buy furniture like lampstands or nightstands to complement
your new room. Window treatments, accent rugs, lighting fixtures, and
wall hangings are also elements to consider. Depending on your style,
you can choose items that match your headboard perfectly, or you may decide
to allow your headboard to be the focal point of the room and choose accents
that are in lighter but complementary shades.
