36 Awesome Ideas for a Headboard or Bedhead


I have been so busy on the last months that I ended up not finding much time to write. I should apologize for take so long to update the blog but let’s start again. I am going to south america for a holiday and I will update the blog with a lot nice photos from the best places in Argentina and Brazil for interior design and architecture. So keep in touch.

Let’s talk about bedheads, I was the other day with a friend looking for a beadhead for her bedroom. I realized that it is not an easier decision so I decided to show you some nice ideas for a beadhead or headboard (how some people call it as well).

NUMBER 1    Upholstery Bedhead

There are so many interesting upholstered bedheads shapes around at the moment. Sure, they can be a little more expensive to have made than the usual square shape, but they can give some extra personality to a room.

TEXTURAL NEUTRALS

    • Hello cheeylcartmell,
      I am sorry but I don’t know anyone in Brisbane that could help you to fix your bed/bedhead. From your explanation,It doesn’t seems to be difficult to fixed it.
      Have you thought about to do yourself. I have learned a lot on how to fix things online. Maybe it will be worth it to try. 😉
