Happy Wednesday to you! As I am starting to finally think seriously about my guest room and my own bedroom (at long last), one look I am continuously drawn is canopied beds and beds with crowns. Yes, it is very classic and traditional, having been done for centuries but now you also see it being done with a modern twist to give it a fresher cleaner feel. Its a beautiful way to use a favorite fabric or combination of fabrics and just feels so “cocoonlike”.? I remember the very first?time I slept in a bed with a soaring crown was in a beautiful hotel room in Belgium about 15 years ago. I felt like a royal and must say I had an awfully great nights rest. So….am sure I want to do the same thing in ?my own guest room and today’s post is a tribute to all the wonderful treatments that can be applied to a bed. What are your thoughts? Is it a like? A love? Would love to know! Here we go………feast your eyes on these beauties! This beautiful bedroom has been an inspiration for my guest room, love the check fabric used inside, think it makes it less fussy and crisp feeling, Joy Tribaut The colors here are my favorite, I like the idea of a very quiet print with solid colored muted bedding, so inviting! TH Beautiful application, love how the fabric matches the wallpaper,also love the gathered carona, ?Kendall Wilkinson LOVE the scalloping detail on this vision in ivory, Phoebe Howard Always adored this bedroom, so serene and inviting! Cathy Kincaid ?Fun twist on a traditional room for a lucky young lady! Palmer Weiss How pretty is the soft billowy fabric used as a canopy? So soothing and calming…..Howard Thom Felicia’s bold take on a modern day canopy bed Mary McDonald dreamt up this vision in white! Wiliam Eubanks designed this fabulous master retreat using warm soothing tones…so elegant! How sweet is the pink gingham? Love it! Shes so pretty This sumptuous room by Mario Buatta just screams “come jump here” and bring your mags and books with you (and a indulgent little snack too:) Love this serene oasis of a room, the scale of the room makes it feel majestic, Veranda Always been a fan of this gorgeous dreamy room of canopied twin beds, Cathy Kincaid Love pretty prints in rich warm tones for a canopy as Rinfret did in this elegant retreat Love this monochromatic take on an elegant modern daybed….beautiful! Of course everything Ralph Lauren touches turns to gold or at least into a bed fit for a princess! Solis Bentancourt’s modern take on a pair of canopy beds, pretty! And for a more masculine approach, canopy beds can still work…as shown here in Cottage and Gardens. I really like Michael S. Smith’s take on a more transitional cleaner feel on a canopy bed, Elle Decor Barry Dixon designed this fabulous retreat in brown, love the feeling! And finally….who said canopy beds are just for humans? ?Aristopaws Too cute! Chinoiserie Chic Had to throw in mans best friends, they like to live in great style too! So….whats your take? Do you love this look? Do you favor it more traditionally or like the more modern take? To me, its just beautiful any which way. As always, love to hear what you think. Wishing you a fabulous day!
