You’re at that stage in life: it’s time to have nice, grown-up bed. You work hard and you’re past the days of hand-me-downs from great aunt so-and-so or the headboard from your college days. No! You are a LEGIT GROWN-UP. You mean business! You pay taxes out the wazoo, for Pete’s sake! And yes, you deserve a non-Ikea bed! (No offense to IKEA – but srsly)

I’ve been working on a master bedroom refresh for the house at Carlton Landing; something that feels a little more chic, sophisticated and less juvenile (which makes sense – the bed was mine from when I was 16). And in all my research, I pulled together a few different roundups of some gorgeous beds, organized according to style. So I present to you, in no particular order, my favorite 19 beds and headboards for maximum grown-up style points.


If you love polished French style and want something with a little more texture, look at one of these beauties. Contrasting woodwork adds visual depth and neutral colorways insure that any one of these beds would fit nicely in your decor. Perfect if you lean more feminine in style but have a manly man in your home who gets nervous with too much frill.

You want something cozy, enveloping and traditional but with a casual California spin. Try one of these modern sleigh beds for a sleeker spin on a classic design. My personal pick is that Annie Selke lovely – it comes in every single color of the rainbow. I’m also crushing on that Restoration Hardware bed too.
