Rather than hide the bed, Trent made it the focal point of the room. He painted the interior a soothing Caribbean blue and piled the bed with pillows with a nautical theme. Plants surrounding the bed, a concrete planter filled with sand and stones, and a collection of glass jars filled with beach finds makes it feel more like a raft or a small ship that's drifted lazily onto the shore.
Even if you don't have to put the bed in the closet, if you're looking for a headboard for your bed that provides a bit of a canopy, consider a freestanding closet or armoire. Note: Check the closet and bed sizes and make sure they fit!
