Petite Suspended Canopy Bed
If a four-poster bed isn’t in your budget, or your room is a little smaller and a full four-poster bed is a bit imposing, a small four-poster bed that hangs from the ceiling can do just the right thing. Use translucent, wafer-thin material to drape it from the canopy over your bed and onto the floor and create a dreamy experience while relaxing in bed.
The great thing about this idea is that it works in any room and for any bed, whether it’s a single bed for kids or a king size bed for adults. This is also perfect as it is an inexpensive and instant way to make any bed royal.
Traditional dark wood
A classic four-poster bed like this one adds a sense of studied elegance to any bedroom, and there is something about dark woods that gives off a romantic tone. Four-poster beds like this can either be left unchanged or added with some soft drapes.
If you choose curtains, you can indulge in the romantic feel of a wooden bed and opt for highly contrasting white, cream or makeup colored curtains. Make sure your curtains are good quality and spill lots of material on the floor around the bed posts to add to the drama.
This cute idea makes the perfect four poster bed for girls and adults alike. It hardly takes up any airspace (if you attach it to the wall behind the bed) which makes it perfect for a small space. This idea is perfect for little girl’s rooms where you don’t want miles of material to fall over the floor.
You can unfold this over the headboard and drape a paper-thin material over the canopy, around the headboard and behind the bed where it is safely stowed. This gesture creates a great effect, but without the expense of large bed frames and a lot of material. It’s great if you are on a budget too.
Gothic wrought iron
Four-poster beds like this are pure drama; go full 16th Century with a Gothic-inspired wrought iron four-poster bed. Combine it with dark, luxurious bed linen for a particularly gothic drama or for something lighter with optically white bed linen.
Go for mood lighting to get the whole look and equip it with an imposing chandelier, deeply tinted rug, and loads of metal objects.
Modern and minimal
You don’t need to have an upholstered four-poster bed to feel like you’re in luxury – a simple modern four-poster bed can do just the right thing. An angular, minimalist bed frame in gray goes great with a busy patterned wallpaper or a plain white wall. Go for white bed linen and dress it up with bold and colorful furniture and upholstery or a playful and fun look.
If you’re more of a minimalist, how about white everywhere? White floors, white walls, white bedding, and white furniture. A curved four-poster bed breaks up the space while taking advantage of the simplicity of a minimalist design.
Deep jewel tones are everything in a Moroccan-inspired space, from a luxurious four-poster bed to carpets and lampshades. The colors are lavish and the inspiration exotic; Think purple, gold, turquoise, deep blue and pink and your room will be full of geometric patterns.
Combine patterns and colors, and don’t apologize for the mismatch and excessive decadence that makes this look like no other. Fringes, tassels, and beads adorn headboards and pillows for added luxury. Our design experts also suggest bringing in vintage and antique finds and curios to really emphasize the look.
Plush and sophisticated
Imagine a wooden roof bed awash with lazy four-poster curtains that buzz around the bed posts and drool to a pool on the floor next to the bed. Think of darkness and depth and of luxurious yet calming colors.
