Upholstered Headboards

Elizabeth Dinkil 4-swallow-drive-bedroom
Hoyt and I need a headboard for our bedroom. I've been saying this for years- and can't seem to make up my mind on what look I want. (Yes, all day long I make firm decisions for other people but when it comes to ME I can't can't even decide what socks to wear. Makes no sense.)

I tend to lean towards simple- but maybe it's a chance to go bold!...?

Here are a few images I've gathered over the years... OK, more like 40.
