Bed Canopy Inspiration

Phew. After one more week of apartment hunting, I’ve still not found that flat. You are probably asking yourself what can be so hard? Well, there are a lot of obvious things to consider like size, budget and location. Then, there are the less obvious considerations like having a green view; perhaps a little balcony (even a terrace?); the possibility to have pets (many complexes forbids animals!); unfurnished meaning no fixtures and yes, NO furniture; close to the subway as I commute to work; relatively newly renovated with a-lot-of-natural-light … and then yes, I also need to like it. Reality check. I have turned into every-real-estate-agents nightmare. Check.

Besides not finding a flat, I’ve been busy working on a DIY tulle skirt (stay tuned for the tutorial), and got inspired to use this delicate material to create a dreamy-romantic canopy for the bed. It’s true that you need a quite big bedroom to pull this off (one-more thing to be added above), but can you imagine anything more amazing than waking up surrounded by beautiful fabric? It’s probably the little-girl-loving-anything-pink talking here; and the future-flat-to-be better appear ASAP so this dream can be put into reality. In the meantime, enjoy below inspiration of different bed canopy styles. Use a classic tulle version, add lighting, use different fabrics or patterns. There is something for everyone…
