A Beautiful Bed


I am resurrecting this image from the archives because it is by far one of my favorite inspiration shots.  My bedroom is in desperate need of some love.  Working in the furniture industry makes is really hard to commit.  I want to practice what I preach which is to buy with longevity in mind, but at the same time. when I see beautiful pieces that I have easy access too, it becomes very tempting.

This photo has long been an inspiration of mine. The trick is to make it feel the same using what I have and a few new touches.  I love the idea of mounting iron hardware from the ceilings.  I love the weight of the fabric around the bed, and velvety blue.  Are canopy beds overrated?  I am convinced I will have more rest full sleeps.

    I have been sleeping in a fourposter for all my married life and cannot imagine anything else. It's protecting me, covering me and giving me the room to live a life of romance!
