Monday Musings: Can We Canopy?

Love muffins! Happy Monday. Did you all have a lovely weekend? I spent the majority of mine relaxing and catching up on work after my murderous exam on Saturday morning. Enough about me, let's talk about what I am musing. So self centered aren't I? I have a client who has a fabulous master bedroom. Fabulous. Just needs a few tweaks and some finishing touches. She does however have a tricky space behind her bed which hinders a headboard or the like. I put my design thinking/problem solving cap on and got to work. What will draw the eye up and be dramatic enough to steal the show in the space? Hmmm. A canopy, that is what. I have to be honest, I used to hate the canopy look. Hate. Just a major dust collector and looked majorly gaudy to me. I must admit, I have had a major change of heart. Just look at all of these fabulous spaces that have been touched by the canopy.

So where are you on this subject? Are you in the conformed camp like I am? Or the non conformed. Do tell. Also, come back in a bit. You know it's Christmas, and you know I like spoiling you. See you in a bit. Love you. Mean it. XOXO

  2. I had an antique canopy bed growing up and loved it. So cozy sleeping in there and it didn't really get any dustier than curtains. Just a bit of vacuuming.

  5. I am SO loving the "faux" canopy - curtain rods on the ceiling. I posted a beautiful bedroom with one on Friday on my blog - swoooon! I don't think my bedroom is big enough to do this in - total bummer!

  6. I used to be a major canopy hater, I thought they were only for little girls with those ugly flimsy wrought iron beds. Then I saw the blue bedroom Mary McDonald did and totally changed my mind! Loving the pic above with the all black, gorge!!
