Hi, Simply Seleta readers! I’m Jenny from the blog, Little Green Notebook. I absolutely adore Seleta and it is such a treat to write here today!
I know Seleta loves a beautifully decorated child’s room as much as I do, so I thought I’d talk a little about canopy beds. One of my favorites has to be this Katie Ridder room featured in Elle Decor:
We recently moved to a new apartment in a new city, so I get to redo my two oldest girls shared room (here’s what it looked like before). With our high ceilings combined with my daughters’ love of everything princess, I have been thinking canopies over their twin beds might be really fun.
Then the other day we were killing some time at FAO Schwartz and I saw this tented canopy over a display area.
It’s hard to see what’s happening with the fabric in these crappy phone photos, but they combined a Liberty of London floral and a gingham check. I think I would have gone with a check in a bigger scale, but I loved the look.
I haven’t buckled down on the design yet and I’m still contemplating DIY approaches for a similar look. Part of me wants to go even simpler though. Check out some of these canopies that would be so easy to recreate:
I enjoyed visiting here today!
P.S. Seleta did a great round up of canopy beds here.
