These beds are all so soft and romantic because of one thing in common: lace. It's often thought of as a frilly and out-dated look, but we think lace can bring a warm touch to a pared-down dwelling. Some examples:

1 A little lace detail pokes out from this otherwise simple and modern bed, via Katy Elliott.
2 a vintage lace look via Posy
3 Look at how pretty lace can look with sleek black. This lace set is from F & B Specialty Linen.
