Oversized bedspreads and canopies for a fantastic bedroom
In all the fairytales you’ve seen, the princess’s bedrooms are lavish and decadent, save for those of Cinderella and Rapunzel, but even those two eventually acquire royal digs. An enchanted bedroom might have a sprawling balcony with multiple layers of ceiling-to-floor drapes and a canopied bed with decadent sheets and gold-tasseled pillows. Your own bedroom, on the other hand, might not have some of these finer details. Of course, that doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t be able to treat yourself to a bit of lavishness and comfort when dressing up your own bedroom. Here are few additions to your bedroom that will make it fit for any and all royalty.
- Oversized king bedspread – we’ve all had nights when we wished for our blankets to be just a bit larger. A couple toes sticking out or the top of your shoulder blade exposed might not be a big deal on most nights, but on cold nights, a nuisance like that can keep you up all night! Avoid this issue with oversized sheets that have the additional benefit of looking fantastically luxurious when layered and folded on the floor just so.
- Canopy bedding – while traditionally used to keep mosquitoes and the like out when sleeping, canopy bedding’s translucent sheer look is elegant and romantic. Even if you haven’t got a balcony, you can adorn your bedroom with hanging fabric with canopy bedding.
- Throw pillows – you’ll certainly never need more than two pillows per person while sleeping, but the addition of a few superfluous pillows can be a fun way to add a few accent colors to your bedroom. Think of them as stuffed animals to make your sleeping area seem more stylish rather than childish.
At the end of the day, the bedroom is more for function than form, but if you want to decorate your sleeping quarters just as you do the rest of your home, there are plenty of ways to dress up your bed.
