Finding the Perfect Headboard

May 18 2014
I’m always looking to spruce up my apartment and decorate as much as I can – it’s one of my favorite things to do. In the springtime, I put up an accent wall in my living room, which was on my to-do list since I moved in about a year beforehand (better late than never)! The second project that’s been sitting on my to-do list has been to buy a headboard for my bedroom. I’ve been toying back and forth with either painting another accent wall behind my bed and putting a large frame up – or getting a headboard, and I’m leaning toward the latter. 
A headboard is a great way to add character to a bedroom, and it frames a bed beautifully. I’ve been pulling inspiration from wonderfully decorated bedrooms like the ones below while figuring out which kind of headboard is perfect for me.

I would describe my style as a mix between bright pops of patterns / colors and the simplicity and cleanliness of neutrals. (Think Jonathan Adler meets Pottery Barn). I already have my colors and patterns picked out on my bed – I just need a simple headboard to pull it all together! I’ve been looking at these from Target:

One // Two // Three // Four // Five
Expect a blog post up (somewhat) shortly about what my final choice was! Don’t forget to use Target for home decorating projects – such great prices on pretty much anything you might need.
