- The Princess Bed -
I was in the fifth grade when my mom created a makeshift canopy for my childhood bed. She hung curtain rods from the ceiling around the parameter of the bed and voila! I had the equivalent of the canopy bed featured in the Pier One ads. Pre-Instagram and Pinterest, paging through magazine catalogues addressed to my parents was a favorite pastime.
Returning home from college 10+ years later, I ditched the idea of a canopy. I rolled my eyes at prepubescent me. Canopy beds were for babies.Trend over. I yanked down the curtains and became oh-so-adult...with my Walmart bedding.
Fast forward to Chris sending me a photo of a canopy bed the other week. 'Thoughts?' Ew, I liked it. A lot. I had always imagined a large quilted headboard. Something chic and plush. Now here I was staring at a wonderfully princess-like canopy bed frame. Just like I had wanted 15 years ago. Some things never change!
Enjoy this roundup of all my modern canopy favorites. They're so good. What do you babes think? xx
