Obviously the choice of the bed is also determined by the size of the room and the décor around it as you do not want to put an excessively large and indulgent bed in a small space.
Similar to the first example shown in this article this bookshelf headboard from Made By Mood shows how you don’t necessarily need to put yours up against a wall and instead makes a great solution for a partition.
Unlike a real headboard designed for a bed your bookshelf doesn’t necessarily have to be the same height and width as one. In fact the taller and wider it is the more of a statement it will make! This first example from Domino is a short one but extends out about a foot from each side of the bed.
Pastel hues have gone on to rule the world of fashion and design in the last few years and here is your chance to try them out in the bedroom as well. Pastels and shabby chic go like hand in glove and it is an approach that never fails. Gentle pink watery yellows and elegantly cool greens help punctuate the antique decors and give them a colorful new lease on life.
A chalkboard wall in the kids’ bedroom is an absolute no-brainer as the little ones will inevitably start writing on the walls sooner or later. Instead of spending a fortune on a bedroom theme and style that is fixed chalkboard walls allow you to usher in multiple themes depending on the changing whims and fancies of your kid.
Regardless of which camp you fall into there is little doubting the fact that shabby chic has made giant waves in the world of interior design over the last two decades. Today the elegant style is more popular than ever before and homeowners are increasingly gravitating toward its charming appeal.
If you’re lucky enough to have really high ceilings you can take your bookshelf headboard all the way up to the top like this example from a New York apartment featured on Home Adore. You gotta love the library ladder added to this one!
A similar and comparably creative example from Juvenile Hall Design shows books open and attached by their covers to the wall above the bed with one simple shelf for a lamp and a plant! That’s one DIY project that might be perfect for any extreme bookworm.
