Like most design elements of the past centuries, the architectural design provided practical applications and solutions for their shortcomings. During medieval times the roofing did a poor job of keeping bugs and lack of a better term, nastiness, from falling through the roof. Nothing says rise and shine like waking up to rat droppings on your face.
Can you even imagine?
The hero of this story is the creation of the canopy bed. It protected you from well you know anything that the roof failed to.
As little girls, the canopy bed represents the sweet slumber of a beautiful princess while waiting for her knight and shining armor to arrive.
While we still may be waiting for prince charming we love the canopy bed for the tall focal point it creates and the statement of luxury that it produces.
Swoon with me over these canopy beds as they steal center stage.
Every detail of this bedroom is absolute perfection!
