Headboard

Come to bed, Madame Secretary

Madame Secretary: Season 1, Episode 1 - The Boudoir

Madame Secretary: Season 1, Episode 1 - The Boudoir

Last night I watched the first episode of Madame Secretary, and I think it is off to a strong start.  It's House of Cards meets Scandal, but with just enough Homeland that I might learn something.  

But plot points aside, the best moment was when we got a glimpse of this over-sized upholstered headboard.  The style of this piece would typically not draw me in, but the scale makes it all better.

UPDATE (Sept 12, 2015):  

This short post has turned out to be one of the most popular posts on the site because people really respond to this bed when they watch the show, so I have done some googling, and located the bed (or at least a version so similar that it will do).

Chalk Headboards

I know I just wrote about the show Finding Carter, but I have more to say.

Finding Carter: Season 1, Episode 2 - Carter's bedroom in her new home....which is way too decorated to make sense in the plot timeline.

Carter's chalk headboard must be the envy of all teens (and people who wish they were still teens).  It reminds me of the headboard that Joseph Gordon-Levitt had in 500 Days of Summer.

500 Days of Summer - Bedroom of a guy who doesn't believe his girlfriend when she says she doesn't want to get too serious.  

I was planning on posting lots of other pictures of chalk headboards, but most of the ones on the internet are really phoning it in.  Although, I do like this one:

I appreciate the crown moldings and I like how the bed on the right uses an actual chalk board as a headboard.

Although, the fact that they did chalk rugs exposes these pictures as styled rooms and not actual functioning bedrooms.  I have a feeling that this was a catalog shoot for Anthropologie (just a hunch).
