Q: I'm almost finished putting together my 3-1/2 year old son's "Big Boy Room", but I've run into a problem. What should I hang on the huge empty wall next to his bed? My son snuggles up to the wall when he sleeps, so I can't hang anything too low, or anything that protrudes from the wall too much. A poster or photographs would look great, but I'm concerned about them falling on my son... especially if he's throwing his bed covers around and accidentally knocks them down. I have a few hand-made quilts I could hang, but I'm not sure the best way to hang them. Any other ideas??

Editor: To me, this is begging for a big piece of art (see Big, Bold, Memorable Art in Kids' Rooms), maybe something on canvas for safety? But I can see how you might want to avoid anything big when your son is still young. Wall decal? Readers, what do you think?
