Q: I'm new to interior decoration and I'm giving my bedroom a makeover...and I have no idea what to put behind/over my bed! My room (larger photo below) is mostly a classic look - 11-foot ceilings, big fireplace, classic molding, soft blues, greens, creams and browns, and lots of natural wood. The bed is a captain's bed.

I'm considering making my own headboard (maybe brown fabric or dark leather) or just hanging a huge gallery-wrapped nature print (think oceans, trees, etc) behind my bed instead of a headboard. But honestly I'm new to all this, totally clueless, and need suggestions/guidance. Help?

P.S. I know the comforter definitely has to go - I will be replacing it as soon as I figure out what will be on the wall behind it!
