Modern living doesn’t get any less busy or stressful. That means that we are placing more and more emphasis on the bedroom as an oasis of calm where we can really relax and recharge our batteries. Bedroom design and furnishings play a major part in creating a peaceful and relaxing environment.
That’s why blue, the coolest and most comforting color, always scores high as a favorite for bedroom decor schemes. But color is only one dimension of bedroom design. Materials and textures are just as important. This is where wicker headboards come in. A well-designed wicker or rattan headboard can play a big role in achieving that calm, clean modern look for your bedroom.
Interior decorators all know that there is something about organic, natural materials and neutral colors that seem to ‘speak’ to the human psyche. Our wicker or wicker and rattan headboards, available in five sizes to match almost any bed, evoke the tranquility of a perfect natural world.
The colors of natural abaca (a species of banana) and other wickers and rattans are never ‘in your face’. These quiet hues never intrude or overpower the eye and are easy to incorporate into the design of the modern bedroom. Natural shades of brown and beige will fit in with almost any existing color scheme, without requiring a bedroom makeover.
The human eye also responds positively to textures and patterns. Wicker and rattan weaves introduce a subtle element of visual interest into contemporary bedroom design. The trend in some of the best modern design tends towards the understated rather than the bold.
Wicker fulfills that requirement. The combination of natural materials, restrained neutrals and understated style generates a gentle ambiance that is highly desirable in contemporary bedroom design.
Wicker headboards with subtle texture and clean lines are available in a variety of pleasing designs. You will have a choice of different weaves, with a more or less pronounced textural effect. Though wicker headboards offer understated bedroom style, wicker is never dull, and the plainest of designs will add something special to your bedroom’s look and feel. The contemporary designs available have the organic feel of rustic and traditional decor but carry the hallmark style of the very best of contemporary design.
A wicker headboard can easily be co-ordinate with other bedroom furniture in the same or different materials. Versatile and classic, your wicker headboard will blend in effortlessly, adding a quietly exotic touch.
Of course a wicker headboard will also serve an important practical purpose as well, so that if you’re reading or watching TV in bed you won’t don’t have to lean against a cold wall. The neutral colors of wicker and rattan will go well with your existing bed linen or quilt, no matter whether the style is traditional or contemporary. Wicker headboards will instantly augment your bedroom design and give you many years of use.
