Remember when you were a little girl? And you dreamed of being a princess who had the most wonderful life? Putting the whole Prince Charming thing aside, the princess you dreamed of had the most wonderful bedroom full of everything a little princess could ever need – included a delightful canopy bed to rest her pretty little head on. You were certain that that all her dreams came true in while sleeping under the overhead beams and ruffles of that gorgeous bed.
While most of us have graduated from dreaming of being a princess (well, most days anyway), the thought of a canopy bed is still pretty cool – even as a grown adult. Luckily, the design options for canopy beds have progressed well beyond those of the castle walls. Heavy woods and frilly ruffles are still available for those who prefer that style, but other options have emerged that offer streamlined, contemporary designs that can work with with a variety of design styles for the adult bedroom. Canopy frames made of beachy woods, sleek metals, contemporary fabrics, and various combinations of these materials create stylish options for your bed that are a welcomed departure from the traditional headboard.
Canopy beds look great, are functional, and add an element of interest to a space that otherwise can tend to become mundane in design (think matching bedroom sets). This roundup of canopy beds are not only gorgeous, but aims to help you decide what style of frame would work best with your design style.
