The sweetest dreams – part 2

Morning loves, and welcome back to part two.  I had mucho funno putting together this little collection of colourful canopy beds – and discovered in the process that I absolutely head-over-heels LOVE the designs that include a light fixture, mirror or piece of artwork within the actual canopy (e.g.. below right).  Absolutely divine, no?

So take a little gander, and let me know if anything tickles your fancy!

This monochrome lovely doesn’t reeeally belong in this collection I guess…but it is freaking fantastic:

More light fixture yumminess in this space designed by Elizabeth Dinkel (see here for more!):

And these two by Jan Showers are also making my knees wibble a smidge (see here for more!) – the double-sided fabric work is delectable, no?

I wouldn’t opt for pink personally (I would be yelled at considerably by the other half I suspect…), but the two fabric patterns used are pretty insane.  And this indigo / ivory / gilt combo is also absolutely incredible:

And last but certainly not least, who doesn’t love a little close up of fabric trimmings…?  Oh, you’re not too excited by that?!  Must just be me, ahem.

  1. I do not know what is about me and dark color walls lately, but I like a good contrast like the one in the dark blue and white bedroom. And I also like the pink and the quilted bed cover. When are we going to see the results in your house, Elly?
