How To: Dress your Upholstered Headboard

If you have an upholstered headboard, whether tufted or embroidered with nailhead trim, it may be difficult to know how to “dress” such a majestic piece of furniture. You might think to yourself, What pillows do I use? What duvet should I get that will go well against my headboard? One of our designers showcased our favorite upholstered headboards with different looks to help you dress your own headboard.

Start by placing the largest pillows against the headboard. Then add the smaller pillows. The variation in sizes creates a stunning interest against the headboard. Having a variety of textured pillows is important because they add dynamic dimension to your bed. The important thing to remember is to avoid clashing the linen upholstery because you are dressing your bed up against an upholstered headboard. If the upholstered bed is grey or beige, keep your pillows and comforter neutral. Finally, finish dressing up your headboard with a stunning throw or blanket for added interest. It will be the cherry on top of a sundae! We hope this helps. Comment below!
