Little girls are supposed to want ponies, but I never wanted a pony. As a child, I dreamed of having a canopy bed. I knew exactly what it would look like, too. I had one picked out in the JC Penney catalog, with an arched top and ruffly lavender curtains. I never did get that bed, and now that I'm all grown my tastes have changed a little — but I still find myself drawn to canopy beds. These sleek, modern examples are sans lavender ruffles - but still plenty romantic just the same. Top row: 1. All white from House to Home. 2. Classic textures and modern shapes for a look that's timeless and clean. From Style at Home 3. A campaign canopy bed from C Magazine. 4. A mirrored four-poster reads just a bit feminine without being twee. From Design*Sponge. 5. A calm white four-poster from Better Homes and Gardens. Bottom row: 6.
