I don’t know about you, but I’m a huge fan of anything palm/banana leaf, so when I spotted this headboard on Bazaar earlier this week, I gasped. Since it looks absolutely stunning and would make a huge impact on its own, there’s no need to go overboard sourcing decor and accessories–simply let the bold print do the talking.

This headboard is made to fit a king sized bed, so unfortunately it isn’t an option for me, but a girl can dream! (If you’re in the market for a large headboard and love this print as much as I do, please snag this beautiful piece and report back!).

In general, I try to keep a few things in mind when shopping for a headboard. First of all, I try to pick a style that is classic as opposed to too trendy (fear not: banana leaf is definitely a classic–while the print is extra popular right now and may seem like it’s on the trendier side, it actually dates back to the late 1930s; you can read a full history here).

I also am mindful of price, of course–headboards can be very expensive, and you want to make sure you’re spending your money on a quality piece that will hold up year after year. I’ve had luck shopping Craigslist and other resale sites for great vintage pieces (take a spin through our other headboard listings on Bazaar!) and snagged a great deal on my current cane headboard.

Lastly, you’ll want to ensure your headboard won’t clash with your current decor. The banana leaf headboard would look excellent in a room with mostly white or green bedding and decor, but it wouldn’t work in every space. Unless you’re planning to execute a major bedroom revamp, you will most likely want to purchase a piece that complements your existing color scheme. Linen and wood pieces are a great place to start.

What do you swear by when headboard shopping? We’d love to hear!
