I have been looking into queen size headboards for my oldest daughter– and as usual, I am torn between the more transitional and the traditional.
I saw this bed in the latest Trad Home (an amazing new online magazine), and think it is great looking for a teenage girl. The source notes that it is from PB Teen, but alas it does not seem to be in their current catalog.
This new Octavia bed from Serena & Lily is also catching my eye, but my oldest daughter is not liking the Greek key detail (which, of course, defines the bed!). She claimed she wanted streamlined and simple, but she does not seem to like items that best represent this aesthetic!
I also like a traditional, classic look, as represented by this Swedish inspired headboard used by Brooke of Velvet & Linen in a bedroom for a young girl. See her post here – it is inspirational! The headboard is from Chelsea Textiles (available through Giannetti Home), and I already have Chelsea Textiles side tables that will be going in my oldest daughter’s room (they are currently in my master bedroom).
This headboard is very similar (although the sides are different, and the headboard is taller), but the overall look is similar (seen on a recent tour of homes). This would have been a dream come true for me a a child (and maybe even now!).
Of course, it all comes down to personal preference – I will show this post to my oldest daughter and see what she thinks! If you have any good bed resources, please put them in the comments – I am always on the lookout!
