 When my dd moved out last week I moved my bed into her room.  My bed does not have a headboard and I don't plan on buying one.  I have a couple pictures that need a place to hang and was wondering what you thought about putting this picture over my bed.  Dumb idea?

 btw, the room looks extremely bright yellow in the picture, I don't know why.

It would look fine, but I am very wary of hanging things that might fall on me. And it happens. So I'd put something that absolutely wouldn't hurt you if it fell on you. Or somehow bolt the picture into the studs of the house. Or pull the bed away from the wall.

 I would put the bold picture on the wall to the right of your bed- and move the other one somewhere else.     The wall  your bed is on already has a heavier volume and focal point.  I think putting the bold ( along with  heavy black accent pieces or black lettered phrase over or under )  on  right would help to balance the area better.     Also a huge Black accent pillow against the wall on the bed.    I love decorating.   I think these changes would really pull everything together.     :-)      Another option would be to   paint a huge picture frame black,  then put your favorite quote or phrase on the wall in the center of the black frame.       With the bright wall colors,  I would go with black for your accents.

Pictures, or collections of pictures, hung in lieu of a headboard, should be at least as wide as the bed.  Your picture is not.  Plus, the color and composition of the picture does not complement the bed or the room.  Google images of "pictures over beds" and "pictures as headboards" to see what I mean.

HOWEVER HGTV is not going to come in and judge your bedroom.  Do what you like.

 I think its a cute picture and I think itll look good over your bed.  It goes with the room.

I wouldn't want anything over my head. I like the idea of painting frame on wall. The right size. Or paint a mural of what you like.

Okay, along with being athletically-challenged, I am also decor-challenged.  I have no clue which picture would look better there, if at all.  So don't listen to me.   Reading thru the replies so far, I have to agree I'd be leery of something hanging above my head and also that HGTV won't be coming over to judge.  lol.

Be sure to let us know what you decide and send a picture!!!

I think the pics above are nice. I would add some sconces to really bring them out.

Yes, this is my feeling also.  I have heard too often of items falling from walls.

I live in Calif., so I am always leery of hanging thins directly over the. That said I think sconses  or light haning lights would look nice hanging over the right and left side of your bed.  You already have a lot going on with the shelf above.
