4. Pom-poms to your window or doorway curtains
Whether you've got curtains to close at night or have a divider or curtains helping you save space over a doorway, you can add pom-poms or tassels — seemingly small details — to create a surprisingly big impact. Not just for kids either, even though this room seen on A Lovely Lark is definitely a rad kid space.

5. Forget reclaimed wood. Go for an entire wood slab.
Though reclaimed wood headboards have been popular (and with good reason, as they are affordable and easy to DIY) if you've got the funds and the inclination, go for a big, dramatic wood slab as a headboard instead. It'll sure make a statement. This one seen on my paradissi.

6. Textured rugs on the wall
Use colorful, patterned or texture rugs on the wall as a headboard, or just use them as decoration. Wherever you use them, they'll be bold. This example from Jennifer Perkins.

8. Stencil pattern on a wall...that continues on a curtain
Stenciled patterns on walls aren't a new thing, neither is stenciling patterns on a curtain. But combine the two surfaces? It's a modern washing of pattern over a big area and it's powerful. This example seen on Sew a Fine Seam.
