Modern Canopy Beds

minimal.jpgAccording to the experts at BHG, “a canopy makes the bed a special room within a room.” I personally still haven’t decided whether I like canopies or not. They look nice in the magazines, sure, but a canopy bed in my own bedroom? Wouldn’t it collect dust on top? Wouldn’t you accidentally bump yourself against it quite often? What is the *purpose* of a canopy, anyway?

I sort of like these, however:

More than Minimal: The strong, clean lines of this pencil-post bed are softened with yards of gossamer fabric draped over the top and a gentle gathering of curtains tied back at the headboard.

Surrounded in sheer white curtains, this bed feels cozy and airy at the same time.

The panels are bordered in lengths of white satin, adding a bit of glamour and glow.

Dark wood tones are the only other colors in the space, creating a serene getaway.

Modern Canopy:

This contemporary bedroom gets a shot of personality and interest from a repeating pattern of boxes and squares.

Canopy draperies are made of striped fabric hung from tabs.
