I love the idea of using something different as your headboard. A lot of these you can make yourself or just use what you already have around the house. Having something large above the bed makes the attention draw there, and at the bed.
I like the look of using screens and panels as headboards. They stand tall, and often are intricate and detailed. A great pleasure for the eye!
I LOVE this one with the tall mirrors and frame. Stunning!
