Headboards fulfill two functions on a bed. They help keep the mattress, pillows, and bedding on the bed frame, and they usually set the style for you bedscape. Live edge headboards do both these things in a fabulous way - they offer sturdy support and give your bedroom an air of rugged frontier living. Cut as a lengthwise section of a tree, they often include the cambium and bark as well as displaying the wood grain.
Add a pieced quilt or a hobnail comforter as bedding, and you are well on your way to re-creating the rich wood charm of a frontier cabin or a hunting lodge. While it would go well with mounted heads or fish, you can just as easily add potted plants, draping vines, or even dried floral arrangements as part of your interior design theme. You could also include a natural wood footboard and frame, just to tie everything all together. Wood has a way of seeming friendly, warm, and welcoming without being overwhelming. Live edge bed frames are a superb choice for a guest room or for the master bedroom. Although, if you have children, they might petition for one in their room, too.
