Happy Friday! I wrote a blog post about nook beds in February which got my mind thinking about canopy beds and I really haven't stopped. When I was in fifth and sixth grade my best friend, Ann Marie, had a canopy bed in her room, so did her sister, and so did the guest bedroom in her house. I was envious of each and every one of those beds. As I aged my desire for a canopy bed dissipated as I considered them more for a child's room than the adult I was becoming. That has changed. There are some beautiful, adult bedrooms with canopy beds and I have the fever for them!
When I first think of canopy beds for adults I think about old castles and royal/noble bedrooms - ornate beds that shielded the lady of the house with curtains when necessary because she was so very important. The beds and my thought process have come a long way.
These first two bedrooms have a slight nod to that "royal" perception.
This is a room I wouldn't want to leave. I'll take my breakfast in bed, please.
I love the way the lumbar pillows match the colors in the canopy fabric - so pretty!

These next six bedrooms are a nod to "the lady of the house's" quarters as they are far more feminine in feel.

This is one is more like a lady's lounge space with a daybed canopy.

I love the painted floor in this pink on pink on pink bedroom.
The last five bedrooms are for the shared master suite, I would say.
Canopy beds are perfect for the tropics!
This bedroom looks like a dream guest room. Way nicer than the one in my old friend Ann Marie's house!
