Rustic Headboard Trends for 2021

The biggest trends in rustic headboard decor right now involve the mixing and matching of different types of woods, stains, and materials. Here’s how to do it right with the rustic style.

They say variety is the spice of life — but don’t forget that it applies to furniture, too.

Innovative designers have always known how to effectively use unique materials to create a pleasing decor. At Barn Walls, we subscribe to the notion — most of the time — that less is more and that natural materials used in distinctive ways are tremendously exciting.

Our rustic headboards illustrate our point. We combine various wood species, unique graining, colorful stains, natural finishes, and different textures into incredibly distinctive pieces. For 2021, perhaps because 2020 was such a tumultuous year, we favor understated colors and design, recalling times when life seemed easier, and the lifestyle was simpler.

That doesn’t mean, however, that your home must be entirely devoid of color. It does allow you to choose the colors and personal accessories that speak to you! We take great pleasure in creating beauty out of found objects and, although we don’t favor clutter, we appreciate whimsy as much as we love simplicity. We view our homes as havens of individuality and comforting retreats from the outside world.

We encourage you to follow your heart.

Greenery can help freshen the air in your bathrooms and kitchen as well, and the contrast of live greenery with rustic wood is a design principle that will always be in style.

Think contrast, and use it to your advantage.

Wood has never lost its appeal for the home. Today, with a greater emphasis on sustainability and preservation of natural resources, rustic distressed and reclaimed wood products are hot on the home scene. You’ll see them used for ceilings and flooring, for cabinets and interior trim, and especially for furniture and accessories.

Rustic decor calls to mind a simpler lifestyle, so choosing vintage elements to complement your rustic headboard is a natural option. We suggest adding spice to your rustic decor by using distinctive accessories. They don’t have to be wood: Think ceramic, painted metal, antique brass, knitted throws, and patchwork pillows. However, don’t hesitate to add a piece of modern art or a satin coverlet if you wish. It’s the variety that will keep your home decor fresh and alive. Barn Walls is your source for unique products, like these rustic candles combined with weathered tree branches in a modern glass vase.

The rustic design add a richness to any room decor that recalls the past and looks to the future. It’s a serene, comfortable, family-friendly choice that allows you to move in any other direction you choose to complete your decor.
