Nifty Nailheads

Nailheads are like jewelry for furniture.  They come in all different shapes, sizes, and finishes…



A few furniture pieces that utilize nailheads…


Arteriors‘ Tennyson bench



The Marcello barstool from Ballard Design is one of Mallory Mathison Inc.‘s favorite barstools.  The upholstered arms make it feel like a comfortable club chair.  And those large nailheads on the side of the arms add the perfect finishing touch. And it’s on sale right now!



Bungalow 5’s Marco side table would look great in the right setting.  Like a kid’s room or playroom.  Also available in black.



If you reallyyy love nailheads, you’ll probably like Bernhardt’s Cabrillo Nailhead Chest… A little too funky for me though.



I would like Noir’s Bacalle ottoman a lot more if it wasn’t so dark.



Nailheads should be essential on a simple, solid headboard.  Wisteria doubled the bling with two rows of nailheads on their Queen Anne headboard.


And now for some pinterest pictures that display good use of nailheads…

I absolutely love the Greek Key design of the nailheads on this banquette in Traditional Home.

[Nathan Schroder] LOVE the upholstered drawer fronts outlined with nailheads on these nightstands.  Although I’m a little distracted by that fabulous green lamp!

Notice the alternating large and small nailheads on this leather stool.  And they are spaced out.  The possibilities are endless.  Gina Berschneider red leather ottoman via One Kings Lane.

Wallcoverings: Grasscloth

via The Handmade Home


Grasscloth is a great way to add texture/detail to walls without having to buy a funky, colorful wallpaper that you will get tired of after a couple of years.  I love that it is made of grass, a natural fiber, because it adds a simple, rustic feel to a room.  It’s natural! (kind of)
