The sweetest dreams – part 1

It is no secret around these parts that I’m a bit of a sucker for canopy beds.  I can’t remember a time when I wasn’t desperate to have one of these to call my own, a desire that was totally and utterly magnified by a two year stint in the Caribbean and a road trip around Bali, let me tell ya.

Our current (rental) master bedroom isn’t big enough to host one of these puppies sadly, but I think one of these days (err…years) I’m going to have to give in to the floaty white drapes and romantic vibe.

So here are some of my faves right now – today I’ll cover the more exotic beauts, any of these would be perfection in Singapore.

These two show that you don’t need to spend mega bucks on a new bed – hanging curtains from rods attached to the ceiling is a genius way to get this look on a budget:

Or simply stringing up a canopy from hooks in the ceiling works wonders too – do you SEE these??!!

    I think they’re magnificent and fit perfectly IF you have fresh sea air breezing through, less so in your typical Singapore aircon flat!

  2. Swoon! I LOVE the idea of creating a canopy using hooks hanging from the ceiling – so beautiful! I actually had a canopy bed growing up {though it didn’t have draperies} that made me feel like a princess! 😛

    I love canopy..it’s so dreamy fresh but I would love it more with a bit of color. I love whites but I don’t think I can maintain them well. I am a coastal native so anything breezy fresh is in my blood 🙂
