Our first proposal is to use a collection of different sized art store canvases to create an artsy, gallery headboard wall. Paint them in a semi or high-gloss, bold color to get a contemporary look, like the bedroom shown above. You can also use recycled cardboard boxes if pre-stretched canvases are expensive. In order to add dimension paint the sides in a contrasting color.

In order to get the luxury interior design the perfect piece can be a crystal chandelier.
