Quilt as Headboard

I l-o-v-e quilts. Love them. Charming, cozy, graphic, geometric, colorful - they can have so many interesting qualities that can really liven up a space. And I'm slightly obsessed with how Phoebe Howard used this quilt as a headboard, really upping the sophistication factor.

They even used the leftover to make coordinating  pillows. That is some smart thinking.

If you found the right quilt - likely a vintage one - you could maybe try your hand at something like this for a bedroom. I especially love the idea of matching twin headboards using different quilts in the same color scheme.

This vintage quilt from Etsy might do the trick for a twin bed:

Or maybe this quilt if you like your quilts soft and monochromatic like the one Phoebe used:

If you are generally in to quilts like I am, check out my latest ideabook on Houzz where I put together some of my favorite colorful quilts out there on the internet:
