Above, an extremely simple (perhaps slip-covered?) headboard pairs well with ultra-femme pieces in Sara Jessica Parker's beach house bedroom. Below, a clean-lined Kelly-green headboard is the focal point of Lee Kleinhelter's all-white guest room. (Also a great option for long-term renters faced with a neutral back-drop.)
