I came across this post on Coco + Kelley about Canopy beds.
True confessions: when I was like 8, I had one of those silly, little girl white canopy beds, with the over-exxagerated white canopy and the frilly lace, and yes: I did love the shit of it. I kind of get it for little girls, and for some reason it makes sense in my brain more than it does for adults. The adult versions of canopy beds always end up seeming a bit overdone to me...like the person is trying just a leetle too hard or something.
But in thinking about it, it occurred to me that as much as I see pics of canopy beds in mags and on blogs now, I've NEVER actually *seen* one in a real life apt or house. Maybe I'm just rolling with a lame-o, non-canopy crowd (which is very possible), but do these things actually exist??
And if so, where?
Having said all of that, I *do* dig this first pic above from the Coco + Kelley post of former Domino Style Director Dara Coponigro's bedroom. But also that doesn't feel like a canopy to me?
I don't friggin know...what do you guys think? Canopy beds: yea or nay?
