In my bedroom we never close the shades all the way, I love waking up to the light pouring in. But there are some mornings when I'd rather just pull the blanket up over my head and catch a few more hours of sleep! That's when I start thinking that a canopy could be a nice addition to the bed - I could just reach over and let the curtains loose around me and go back to sleep. Zzzzzz
Here are a few versions of a modern canopy I think are simply gorgeous.
