Canopies: An Elegant Edition to Any Room

{Katie Ridder}

I am feeling inspired by canopies this week! I am starting to think about Finley's big girl room and I definitely want to put a canopy over her daybed. It adds such a dramatic statement to the room when you walk in. The picture above creates a awning like feeling over the bed and is finished by a decorative shape. I love the idea of placing a mirror and sconses on the inside as well. There are many different styles you can choose from but here are some of my favorites...

Creating a full cornice and drapery over the bed with fabric is a different way of interpreting a canopy. I like how they used a simple fabric with a trim detail. A great idea for someone who has a large room to work with.

This is a style we have created many times at the store. We find a wooden crown to work with and then drape fabric to the floor off of it. In this case, it added something to the wall without taking away from the decorative paneling.


Iron crowns are an option. You can tab top or tie top your drapery for a different finished look at the crown. We often will buy ready-made panels for this look and finish them off by adding banding in a contrast color to make it look more custom. Its a great way to save on yardage for the curtain portion.

I hope you are inspired to add a canopy to your room and as always we are here at the Bungalow to help!
