Try candles symmetrically placed on top but don’t go overboard with these. Add a deep picture frame to your wall and fill with fairy lights and then cover with muslin achieving a subtle, pretty glow. Try a waterfall of lights, above your headboard and coming down from the ceiling to headboard..
You could even put some fairy lights in jars to create a unique accessory. why not bring a mirror to life by draping some fairy lights over.
