Guest Post~Joanna W/ "Design Shuffle" ~Irresistable Vintage Headboards

Good Morning all. Hope everyone is doing well. Just a quick stop in this morning to introduce Joanna from Design Shuffle. They were kind enough to contact me about guest posting and I thought this was the perfect time!
We moved in this week and I'm in the process of unpacking and putting things in their place. So I'll be back as soon as I get the boxes unpacked and arranged.
Have a great week!!~

Hi, I’m Joanna, a blogger for Design Shuffle, a terrific online source of all things interior design. My job has me searching the internet for the most beautiful decors to share with blog readers like you. Thanks to Alabaster Rose Designs for letting me share some of my favorite vintage headboards. Nostalgic and romantic, the collection of vintage headboards below has us dreaming of the past when décor was soft and comforting. One thread we find running through many of the rooms is the use of repurposed and unexpected materials, such as the fireplace mantel used as a headboard.

A wrought iron canopy, ornate headboard and vintage hats create a romantic feel in this lovely bedroom.

An antique fireplace mantel offers a focal point in this crisp blue and white bedroom design. The shells on the mantel give a coastal touch.

Another antique mantel heads up a bed with vintage linens and throw pillows. The rustic setting gives a truly vintage feel to the room.

This tufted headboard with shelf feels a bit country. The vintage print on the bed linens brings the room together. Does this room inspire any DIY bedroom decorating ideas for you?

An oversized print of vintage laundry looks incredibly realistic. The modern furnishings give the room an eclectic feel.

An ornate wrought iron headboard with rustic finish gives this vintage room a chic touch. Wouldn’t you love to see what the rest of the room looks like?

This elegant bedroom gets its sophistication from the stately mantel headboard and lovely flowing bed skirt.
