Since beds are typically the largest furnishing in a bedroom, the style of your headboard makes a big impact on coastal beach bedroom decor. Headboards share an interesting history in the evolution of home design.
As this piece in Houzz.com highlights, Egyptians used them as show pieces, Greeks and Romans used them to block drafts and to accommodate bedroom entertainment, and households in colder climates used canopies surrounded by draft-resistant linen to keep the bed’s occupants warm.
Celebrate the Headboard with Cottage & Bungalow
Since function always makes way for form in interior design, headboards began to take on a style of their own. You can bring the coast indoors using coastal inspired headboard decor from Cottage and Bungalow. We recommend perusing different headboard designs to see which ones pique your interest, while keeping coastal beach bedroom decor in mind.
Here are some suggestions:
Four Poster Bed. Love a classic (and romantic!) four poster bed? The Juliette is right up your alley. She is part of our St. Andrews collection and is handcrafted using traditional mortise and tenon joinery. Measure your ceilings and walls first to ensure the dimensions will work in your space.
Upholstered For Comfort. Do you while away the hours reading in bed? Then you need a headboard that provides a little comfort, like the Royal Bay Water Hyacinth Bed, hand-crafted in plantation grown mahogany with water hyacinth inset in headboard and base.
Make a Statement. The Nantucket Bed makes a coastal statement that everyone will love. While adults find it charming, the Nantucket bed frame is ideal for children’s rooms and your beachside guest house. One is great and two or more are even better.
