A statement mirror instead of a headboard is a very cool idea: large mirrors are a big trend, they visually enlarge the space and they reflect light making the room more light-filled. You may choose a mirror in a vintage frame for a refined touch or in a modern and laconic one for a chic contemporary feel. Highlight the style of your space with this mirror.
An artwork or a whole gallery wall is another cool and creative idea – this all is the point where you will look more often than at any other, and hanging your art there will make it always visible. It’s also a good way to add color and pattern to the space.
As for textiles, they can be very different. For example, you may go for a canopy attached to the wall to add a refined vintage feel to the space. Or you may hang some jute rugs or a macramé hanging that you’ve created yourself for a boho look of your bedroom.
There are tons of other ways to spruce up your bed with no headboard, and the most popular is perhaps a pegboard, which may feature some shelves and hooks to attach various stuff, from bulbs and lamps to potted greenery. All kinds of storage and decorative features are welcome to make your bedroom cooler.
