How's It Hangin': Tapestry Headboards

Tapestries are items that many of us own already, and if we don't — they're pretty easy to come by. With that said, we really love the look and feel of tapestry headboards. It's an extremely easy and simple solution to a common problem in terms of decorating the bedroom.

If you're lucky enough to have a stellar tapestry that you've been waiting to do something with — hang it above your bed. This idea is nothing new, we know that, just visit any major art museum and you'll see that people have been doing this for hundreds of years.

But don't let that fool you — this look can also be pretty modern. Play up the bold colors in the tapestry by utilizing them in the accessories. If there's bright orange in the tapestry, use bright orange bedside lamps or rug. Or, if the tapestry is bold on its own — paint the walls white and go for a simple white duvet cover. The options are endless.
