14 Dreamy Canopy Beds You Can Make Yourself

Maybe when you were little, your dream was to have a bed with a “ princess” canopy: very exaggerated, with layers and layers of fabrics and all shades of pink. Well, then you grew up and the child's dream was slowly getting left behind. Maybe just until now! Canopies are currently very popular bedroom decor, since there are more mature and modern options, leaving the stigma of "princess bed" behind without losing the elegance. No matter what size bed your have (or how many beds in the room you have), canopies are a great addition!

The use of the canopy beds is an old idea that currently has modern features, creating a romantic atmosphere reminiscent of the beautiful rooms from the past. The canopy is nothing more than a frame that sits on the bed with a cloth or veil on its structure. It can be built into the ceiling, wall or attached in his own bed.

So let us help you get inspired to have a canopy for your own bed, so that you don’t need to travel to Paris or Rome (canopies are still common in European hotels) in order to live out your “princess” dream.
