Sometimes decor decisions are all about creating a little drama - taking a step away from what is safe and moving toward a something with a little glam edge or frill. And mixing in a bit of color doesn't hurt either. Having a bold central piece which is......just on the right side of "over the top" means that you can go simple with the rest of the decor (if you'd like!) and still have a room to remember.
We pulled ten great examples of curvy, colorful, unusual headboards from the House Beautiful bedroom archives that illustrate this idea. From shiny patent leather to tromp l'oeil scrollwork these are not shy, retiring designs - they are the ones that you can build a room around.
