Hang a curtain rod draped with sheer curtains (or fabric) at headboard height, behind the bed, then add some white holiday lights behind the fabric and across the rod.--- maybe just a string of lights over the headboard :)
For my guest rooms ideas.only want Frech Vintage Cottage style in guest room and my office (-Mari Marxuach Parrilla)/ Cozy vintage bedroom with soft ambiance lighting created from tree branches and repurposed string lighting. Just so sweet!
I like the idea of having a simple shelf above the head of my bed. This would work with the idea of the box lights instead of a headboard - they could hang down from the shelf! And that shelf could hold all of my most treasured books!
