Amanda’s bedroom has a lot of beautiful elements, but she emailed me saying that this wall just felt unfinished. Not wanting to take away from the pretty headboard, I came up with a couple of different options for how she might add some finishing touches.
I love the blue and white lamps (of course!), but they feel a little short for bedside lighting. In this case, I would double up on the lighting by keeping the lamps and adding some modern swing-arm sconces. (Love the shape of these; they’re like a piece of art themselves.) As for what to hang over the headboard, I have two ideas:
The first option is to keep things super simple by adding a small sunburst mirror. Adds just a touch of gold to tie in the leopard pillow and only accentuates the curve of the headboard without overpowering.
My other suggestion would be to use the same sconces but to add a set of three framed art pieces above the bed. (The set I found is 8×10 in size and downloadable from an Etsy seller. Inexpensive and easy!) Hanging the art in an arrangement that mimics the shape of the headboard will make it feel a little taller.
Which look do you do like better?
