I have a window on my biggest wall this gives some ideas on how to change it up. like the idea of a curtain behind the bed. even if there's no window. Depends on what wall we decide to put the bed in the new house.
Go beyond the basic headboard and make the entire wall behind your bed a headboard. Distressed barnwood planks run the length of the wall behind this bed. Including a regular, upholstered headboard with the bed will add comfort to the wall.
