So, I officially found a new place to live! It is funny how a new place makes you want almost all new furniture. On my list of “musts” includes a new sofa, armchairs, table top, curtains, light fixtures, skirted bedside tables…..and importantly, a new bed. My current headboard is great for a guest room, but not for the bedroom I have designed in my head. I am really really conflicted on whether I want an upholstered headboard or simply take another route. I am seriously tempted by heading in the direction of iron.
Now, I am open to any and all opinions about iron headboards. Seriously, please comment and guide me in this big decision! I honestly never thought I would even look twice at an iron headboard, but more and more images have recently drawn me into the idea. I think iron adds a dimension of texture and contrast to fluffy white bedding (yes, sheets really should be white…). Here are just a few of the images that have inspired me to get into the heavy metal.

Michael S. Smith does an excellent job with iron beds. Really, he gets the aesthetic so well. I love how the iron mixes so beautifully with the upholstery.
A serene setting that is plush and traditionally designed.
Oh hello Mr. Redd. He also knows how to do a perfect iron bedroom in wonderfully wallpapered rooms. Via Elle Decor
