A statement headboard makes for a fantastic focal point in bedrooms. According to Elle Decoration’s March edition, statement headboards are a huge trend this season. Here’s a bit of inspo for you.
Here are my top 10 (in no particular order):
1. Tufted / Buttoned
Tufted headboards may seem quite traditional, however, oversized tufted headboards create a bold statement.
2. Upholstered panels
Panelled headboards are quite simple. To create a bold focal point, why not use a rich velvet material.
3. Hung leather panel
I love this idea! The principle is fairly simple, but it creates an interesting focal point. The detail of the brass hooks add interest.
Now this definitely creates a bold statement. Copper was a huge trend last year and is still very popular today. The scale of this headboard really creates wow factor.
This beautiful boho inspired headboard would be perfectly at home in an Urban Outfitters catalogue.
This is a really creative idea. In the example below, the doors are very rustic, creating a shabby chic feel. However, you can use modern doors to create a contemporary look.
Another simple idea that creates an interesting look. Although the example uses wood panels, you could use metallic sheets or upholstered panels to change the feel of the space.
8. Wood blocks
This Scandi inspired headboard creates a statement. Although wood may not be an obvious choice for a headboard, it brings a certain rustic charm to the space. Why not add a splash of colour by painting some of the blocks?
9. Gold Scales
This is probably my favourite example. It is so unique and contemporary. The bold gold colour brings a sense of luxury and the layered texture adds depth.
10. Open Books
This is a really unique idea! It would be perfect in a book lovers bedroom.
I hope you enjoyed the selection of headboards, hopefully they have inspired you to be creative with your headboards.

My bed in my uni room doesn’t even have a headboard at the moment which is quite sad! Once I have my own place, I’d love to make a headboard a really big focus in my bedroom! I’m in love with the open book headboard, that looks absolutely charming! I’d imagine that Belle from Beauty and the Beast has one just like it in her palace! Fab post!
