Tufted Velvet Headboards

I'm a strong proponent of the tufted velvet headboard. I think if your headboard has a bit of drama, it can carry the room and you can relax on other elements. And a headboard is often a budget-friendly option, as opposed to a full bed, that allows for a creative bedskirt.

My favorite selection of TVHs is currently at Urban Outfitters. I l-o-v-e the color options!






I think they even have a couple more colors that I did not include. I genuinely think I would be happy with any of these. I think the scale is just right. Aaaand, the price ain't bad - 350 bones. Not cheap, but affordable. And this particular silhouette is difficult to DIY with its curves and tuftedness.

Do you like this type of headboard? Or do you prefer a full bed?

  1. I really like this type of headboard and am actually considering it for my daughter's bed - although if I ever saw it in a shade of pale blue I would immediately think of the original bedroom of Don & Betty Draper from "Mad Men."

  2. You might already know this, but Target actually carries the same headboard in a slightly different selection of colors for $329 (and they often have shipping deals on furniture) - they call it the "Toulouse" headboard: http://www.target.com/Toulouse-Velvet-Headboard/dp/B002AB19QQ . I actually featured it in a velvet roundup on my blog ( http://luisadesignblog.blogspot.com/2010/12/velvet.html ). They actually have a whole variety of velvet headboards, some tufted, some with pretty nailhead trim. My favorite is the "Brittany" (http://www.target.com/Brittany-Velvet-Headboard/dp/B002AB19OI).

  3. I have been loving them lately - I think they would be MUCH more comfortable for reading in bed, etc. when you want something comfy behind the pillows. I liked your comments about how they can carry the room - very nicely put! I don't have one (yet) but I want to get one when we are back in the US (not exactly easy to find over here and not at those prices for sure!).

  4. I like them and am considering them for my daughter's room. My only concern with a kids' room is wear and tear. God forbid someone gets lice or something....what do you do? (Sorry, sounds gross but it does happen when kids are in school--or it did when I was growing up). On these particular images my only compaint is that the headboard kinda sticks out beyond the bed and looks sortof out of place....but I am sure on a fully dressed bed you wouldn't notice that. So, this is my long winded way of saying I like them!

  5. I agree....that's a deal for a tufted headboard! Especially for velvet...quite the effect those would have in a bedroom!

  6. I have a gorgeous antique hand-carved bed set that is a family heirloom, that if I didn't want it my mom would be heart broken...but tufted velvet headboards make me want to face the consequences because I love them SO much!

  7. A friend of mine has this headboard in green and it's so lovely in person. $350 is a STEAL.
