So, do you need some rad inspiration on what to place over your bed headboard? Of all tips and ideas flying around the blogoshere, here are my 3 favorite ones, for they're bold, they're fancy, easy to pull and are sure to brings some wows and omgs to your space.

We've seen kilims and we've most certainly come across tapestries and other woven art pieces hanging on the bedroom wall. But full sized 100% real walk-on-me rugs? Well, now, we've seen those too. Like who would have thought/dared to place that spare (?) Beni Ourain rug right over their headboard? Looks so damn cushy though, perfect for that Aspen chalet of yours (yeah, I'd stay clear of that trend in my Maldives summer home for that matter).

A sconce next to or over the bed is no news. Actually, a swing arm wall lamp is probably the most practical light one can ever wish for their bedroom (plus really cool and in these days). But, hey, look at these oversized lamps making their way over your delicate little pillows. Daring the least, but certainly a feast for the eyes. Perfect for those doing needlework just before bedtime, not sure if you can create a romantic atmosphere with them however. Love this style, probably more during daytime.

Ok, this one is mostly a reminder (like, who doesn't know they can hang a large piece of art over their bed, duh). Large scale art is statement all by itself and a artpiece extending on both sides of the bed feels like a window and creates visual depth and interest. Love how the art substitutes the lack of headboards in the above bedrooms.

oh, and.. NOTHING
Yes, nothing. Absolutely nothing. It is, by far, the most difficult design to pull but looks pretty impressive, don't you think? The empty wall above the headboard gives the opportunity to the rest of the decor to pop out while it creates a unique and effortless tranquility. It's the power of negative space, baby. Surefire way to let your gorgeous high quality bedding do the talking, almost as sure to go all blah and boring when the rest of the decor/interior architecture doesn't support such a move.
