Canopy Beds

Phoebe Howard
As you might remember from our post on gray and brass, I’m chomping at the bit to redo my master bedroom and bath.

I’m jumping on the bandwagon with the esteemed Phoebe Howard and the marvelous Mary Macdonald, and proclaiming that I need a canopy bed.

 So chic…
The no-curtain look is sleek and fabulous,

And lends that clean, streamlined feel that we adore. 
There’s something so warm, cozy and inviting, though, about luxuriating in all that fabric.

What a lovely spot for breakfast in bed!

How do you feel about canopy beds? Which one would you choose?
Happy Monday, friends! We hope it’s a wonderful week!

    I had a canopy bed as a little girl … and loved the cocoon it provided when I went to bed. I’d like that feeling again! Beautiful images! xo

    Well, truth be told I can’t live without one! We have had ours in our room for at least 20 years as well as the pair I had made by a wonderful craftsman for my daughters room 15 years ago at least! So, obviously I am partial to them and love the ones you showed us!

    We had one. I “gifted” it to Erica. It was iron and really fit her and her new home after she married!
    While we had it we had it with fabric and without. You know us…tried all the looks!! I think MC preferred the tailored look best.

    You know that growing up in a chateau in Belgium was a prerequisite for having canopy beds! Ours were pink and white stripe on the inside and chintz on the outside. Love your inspiration for a new master bedroom!

    I love all your examples, I want a versatile type of anopy bed – meaning, one that will look good even without the fabric. Let’s face it, though it is so gorgeous to have all that fabric around your bed, cleaning it would be tough , so the canopy bed has to stand on its own. But either way, it really makes a huge impact in a bedroom! Thanks for the inspiration as always!

    This is something I can only dream about as I have such a teeny tiny bedroom (and I think you need a very big bedroom for this to work). We had a canopy bed in a little English B&B we stayed in last year and it was nothing short of magical! x

    One of my friend have this kind of bed in his bedroom, he installed some extra pipes to the metal bed and added some really nice fabric to give it a great look, my wife has asked me several times to do something like this to our bed but i am too lazy for that.

    Ya know? I think it’s one of those ideas that we might love to dream about, but when actually done might regret? Just thinking out loud here. As I’m looking at the pictures I was feeling a bit claustrofobic. What do you think? I think the open ness might be one you wouldn’t ever regret.
