A bed with a canopy

Isn’t it romantic? I always find a bed with a canopy very romantic. If you like them as much as I do you’ll start building one and end up with a canopy in every bedroom you decorate.

There are so many ways to build a canopy. You just have to find the right match for your room. There you have some pictures to enjoy.

One of the simplest ways with just two panels of fabric

Another way that takes more fabric (at least three panels) 

All of the following “half-canopies” are built the same way, with a hard structure (often made out of wood) covered with a balance and lots of fabric

I like the way the draperies hang in this picture

A little difference for this one that uses
a nice trick if your bed is placed in front of a window

The "Chinese canopy" is the easiest one to make

The next pictures show real canopy beds. You can “dress” these canopies following your inspiration

And the best of all, the bed called "a la polonaise". This is the most romantic “canopy bed” ever made.

...So are you going to start building a canopy any soon?
