I've been seeing some really great examples of non-traditional headboards such as a beautiful rug, an old door, salvaged shutters, windows...and even this traditional Moroccan wedding blanket.
When I repainted our bedroom a few months ago, I was in the mood to try something new. We decided to try a platform-style bed, and I found this expandable garden lattice at Home Depot and thought it would make a great headboard (among other things). What do you think? Would you, or have you tried a non-traditional headboard in your space?
I've seen some amazingly beautiful rugs that would look great on the wall - like the Pliant Laurel rug from Anthropologie.
