Regular everyday bookshelves are perfect for this idea but to step up your style you can get even more creative with different styles and even custom-made units if you’re willing to go that far. For example a very rustic bedroom theme from A Beautiful Mess Antiques uses an old weathered bookshelf with lots of old books to match the lovely country bedding.
Cabinets are similar to bookshelves and can also be used as headboards for LOTS of extra storage space! Here’s an adorable project from Kate Honebrink featuring an upcycled cabinet as a headboard for a kids’ room.
If a chalkboard does not fit the sleek contemporary style of your bedroom or you feel that it is simply not what you are after then splurge on a gorgeous piece of artwork a painting or even a poster that has the same visual appeal of a chalkboard filled with handy artwork. There are many such pieces around that will both dazzle and delight you and add dramatic flair to the modern bedroom.
Modern design and architecture is for the most part timeless classic and iconic. Revisionist in nature modern vehemently opposed decorative styles; it was – and continues to be – progressive enlightened and avant-garde.
House of Turquoise shows you how to create more of a tropical look while Casa Tres Chic takes a different route with a more masculine nautical design. Twin beds also look quaint and comfy when you go along with a country theme. Check out these great headboards from Favorite Paint Colors. Charming and rustic!

You can either constantly change the message on the walls decorations around it and the images it holds or opt for a chalkboard wall that is less dynamic and far cleaner. As we alluded to earlier this is a bedroom addition that well and truly reflects .
Here’s a different example from Cote De Texas which places a mirror above a rustic dresser in between the two beds with a pyramid-like shape of wall art hung above each.
