There is a hint of mystery associated with a canopy, along with a sense of safe enclosure from the outside world. All one's cares are left at the bedroom's threshhold. With swaths of fabric to engulf the sleeper, the bed becomes a world unto itself.
Come with me and let your imagination soar. These images from Marie Claire Maison will leave you spellbound.
Notice how sweetly the light is filtered here.
This bed becomes completely enclosed by its canopy. Letting down the flap would be a pleasurable part of my bedtime ritual.
The minimalist approach can still be cozy and friendly, as seen here.
As I retire for the night, I will keep these bedrooms in my mind's eye, ensuring myself the sweetest of dreams. Wishing you a blissful night.
Until next time...
