Bedroom month on Apartment Therapy is all about the details - focusing in on one room allows us to investigate the small things that can make a bedroom restful, comfortable or in the case of todays post, stylish. We did some digging and came up with 10 examples of great headboards from the 30s through the 70s, all available now, online. From somewhat sedate to totally over the top, we hope you have as much fun checking these out as we had finding them.
