When I was little, all I wanted in the world was a canopy bed. And a kitten. I was lucky enough to get the latter, but the former dream never came to life. Now as an adult I find myself pinning and saving pictures of them left and right. There’s something wonderfully fairy tale about them and whether they’re modern or traditional, they always add a sense of grandeur to any bedroom. So today I’m celebrating 10 of my favorite canopy and four-poster beds from past home tours. Sweet dreams! xo, grace
