Above-the-Headboard Inspiration, Please?

Good Questions

Q: I have a vintage iron headboard but I am stumped on what to put behind it to enhance its beauty. There are plenty of blogs and pictures on the web that provide ideas for the actual headboard; but very little on what to do above a headboard. I have high ceilings so I have the room to add something unique and fun to the bed space.

I also am tired of seeing pictures or a mirror above the headboard. LET'S GET CREATIVE! Branches with glass candle holders? YES PLEASE!!! Thanks tons. My blank wall and bed also say thank you.
