This is what our bed currently looks like. It is a dark espresso leather, which does not really scream "tranquil."
I am drawn to the large upholstered headboards, especially the wingback ones. I think I would prefer an actual bed rather than just a new headboard - that way we don't have to worry about a bed skirt or buying a bed frame...always logical ;) Here are some beds and headboards that I really like. I'm amazed by the selections from places like Target and Amazon, and the reviews are really good too!
