Under the Big Top
I saw this amazing canopy bed this morning on Pinterest and it got me thinking that maybe canopies can be for grown ups too. When I was a little girl, my room was all pink and white and I had a canopy. I think there is something very whimsical about being a little girl and having a canopy, it makes you feel like a Disney princess or a fairy tale character. But because it's so whimsical, I sometimes think it can feel a like inappropriate after a certain age. It's very tricky to have a canopy that still feels grown up and sophisticated. I think the real key is to not do something traditional. For instance, a lot of height, curtains only or just relegated to over the headboard, can make a canopy more elegant and less girly. But it's still my favorite choice for a little girl's room too.
