October 8, 2023

Feminine or Masculine or Mix of Both

You can blend masculine and feminine elements to achieve a balanced look and create a space that reflects your unique style. For example, you might pair a dark velvet headboard with soft pastel bedding or incorporate both clean lines and gentle curves in your furniture choices. Feminine colour palettes often include pastels and soft, muted colours. Think of shades like blush pink, lavender, soft mint, or pale peach. These colours create a gentle and calming atmosphere.Delicate and tactile fabrics like silk, satin, or velvet in lighter shades can add a touch of femininity to your headboard. These fabrics have a soft sheen and a luxurious feel. Finline have hundreds of exclusive fabrics to suit your colour pallet and style, from delicate floral patterns to dark opulent velvets.

Floral & Whimsical Designs – Feminine Aesthetic.

For a Feminine style, embrace floral patterns, intricate lace designs, or whimsical prints for a feminine touch. These patterns can be incorporated into the headboard upholstery or bedding. Finlines exclusive Volkan Nordic Blue from our Silver Collection, Trussardi Print from our gold collection , Penny Blue from our Platinum Collection, are perfect fabrics for a soft feminine look

Vintage and Romantic Accessories

Use soft textures throughout the room, from plush rugs to fluffy throw pillows. These textures add warmth and comfort, reinforcing the feminine aesthetic.

Traditional Design Elements

Transitional design combines elements of both traditional and contemporary styles. Deep button headboards work well in transitional bedrooms as they bridge the gap between the two aesthetics. You can choose neutral or muted colours and pair them with modern furniture and decor to achieve a balanced and harmonious look. Finline’s Deep Button Headboard is a long standing classic within our range. The flow of tufted fabric deep buttoned throughout, results in a timeless look which exudes both luxury and elegance.  While deep button headboards are often associated with classic designs, they can also be used in contemporary interiors. To achieve a contemporary minimalist look, opt for a tufted headboard with a clean and simple silhouette. Choose fabrics in sleek, modern colours like grey, white, or black. The contrast between the tufting and minimalist design can create a striking focal point in the room. Our Camilla Headboard exhibits subtle drama with it’s curved top. Versatile in it’s design, you can highlight it’s elegant shape with contrast piping or add a some buttoning.


Traditional Elegance

Deep button headboards are a hallmark of traditional interior design. They exude a sense of timeless elegance and sophistication. In traditional bedrooms, these headboards often feature luxurious fabrics like velvet or silk in rich, deep colours. They can be paired with ornate furniture, intricate patterns, and classic accessories to create a refined and opulent ambiance.

The Florida Headboard is an elegant piece with a modern feel. The fluted detail gives a structured feel creating a striking focal point in any bedroom. Like all our other headboards, you can choose to go large in size with the Florida or keep it as one of our standard sizes. Opt for headboards with gentle, understated curves and neutral.
