Stylish Headboards


This morning Ariyana's custom upholstered tufted headboard finally arrived and the timing could not be more perfect since we are in the process of transitioning her from the crib to the "big girl" bed. 
I was inspired by many of these beautiful images of upholstered beds below as I was making my decision.   I wanted a headboard Ariyana could have in her bedroom for several years.  But, I wanted the option to move the headboard into a guest room down the road.  So, I decided on an ivory tufted headboard and of course my friend Phoebe (of Lovejoy Designs)  made all of this happen.
 
I also want to thank the following lovely ladies for giving me Blog Awards over the past week.   I will try and get around to answering the questions but for now I really want to thank each of these stylish ladies for thinking of me.

i've been on a major debate what i wanna do when it comes to a "headboard" in my bedroom - i haven't found anything that i LOVE enough to commit too - i'm BAD at commitment - :o)

Congrats on the awards! Ariyana's room looks lovely!!! Love the last pic for the head board! Quite vibrant, but I wonder if I will get bored of it soon!!!

GB said...

I love the headboard!!, and really good thinking on the future "life" of the headboard! Looks like she's going to transition very easily now that she has such a classy bed!! Best of luck with the big girl move! :)

I love the blue headboard with red accents. Such a great combo when it's done in the right shades!

BTW, I'm in the midst of my first giveaway, so feel free to enter here for some yummy Ahava products.

I was just going to write you and complain that I missed my post for the day!! Talked to mom and she said the headboard came - so glad you did a post on it b/c I really wanted to see what it looked like. It's beautiful - Ariyana is lucky to have such a pretty room and bed! Glad she will be able to enjoy using the bed - just in time!

I looove me the first and second ones! I thought maybe I should wait until we move to the new condo to buy furnishings again but am I ever tempted to shop now?

The headboard in Ariyana's room is so feminine. I love the curves and I love that it's tufted. I'm loving the bedding too! Thanks for the shout out also:-). xo

I like the look of a headboard, but can't sleep in a bed that has one for some reason. I can't have a footboard either because I like my feet hanging off the edge when I sleep. I'm weird :)

Beth Dotolo @ Hello, Splendor said...

Very cute!! I love it....
And, I just love upholstered headboards. That's just about all I use for my clients.

Lisa Griffin said...

I have always wanted a cushy beautiful headboard it really MAKES a bed. I once saw one in grey cashmere, ridiculous but ama-z-ing!

I love the headboard and her beautiful bed!

It was so fun (with both kids) to transition to the 'big kid bed.' They were so proud and felt so much older:).

As Hailey's gotten older, I've noticed that I have let her room "go" a little bit. We've cleaned it out several times (organizing, letting go of certain items, adding a few more)- but I haven't really decorated it, added artwork, frames, etc. This past weekend, we organized it and I can't wait to spend more time on it in the coming months (when they start school) to really make it HER room:) again.

Love the headboard!

Valerie said...

I love the headboard! Could her big girl bed be any cuter?? I'd be happy to move in there if she's not interested. ;)

Yes, Something Borrowed is going to be a movie with Kate Hudson (Darcy), Ginnifer Goodwin (Rachel), Colin Egglesfield (Dex), and John Krasinski (Ethan). I cannot wait to see it!
