It is a place where there is no judgement! All this makes the bedroom a space where every design and décor choice matters immensely. And the headboard is an essential piece of this jigsaw that never seems to get the attention it deserves
While antique screens and room dividers might not be ideal for contemporary bedrooms, both in terms of practicality and style, one can still draw plenty of inspiration from them. Much like the classic Shoji screens and room dividers used in Japanese design, a perforated wooden room divider is a great option that adds natural warmth to the bedroom. It can easily delineate the bedroom from the living space or home office next to it without blocking light. Simple floating wooden panels offer a more solid solution, while a screen inspired by Mediterranean style offers more artistry and visual flair.

We feature smart home renovations, additions, extensions and revamps on almost a daily basis here at Decoist. Many of these projects not only see a complete transformation of the interior, its ambiance and style, but also old attics, sheds, garages and unwanted extensions being done away with in favor of contemporary extensions.

One of the biggest perks of a live-edge headboard is the exclusivity that it brings to the bedroom. If you are really good with DIY skills (say intermediate-level skills), then crafting a stunning piece of headboard from a slab of wood is barely an issue. It is a DIY project that you can easily try out at home. The hardest part is of course finding that mesmerizing slab of wood that you absolutely adore. Once that is done, everything else becomes a whole lot easier. If you really are not the DIY type, then you can even order a one-of-a-kind bed with a live-edge wood frame and headboard from sites like Anthropologie.
Designs moving away from this ‘contemporary-minimal’ trend also seem to carry a certain sophistication, like the lovely bed frame from Gruppo Tomasella. Combine these with plush bedding, and you have the outright showstoppers like the floating bed from MobilGAM that gives the impression of levitating effortlessly thanks to a transparent base. No matter what your preferred style is, there is something for everyone here!
