On the other hand... there's something to be said about a little bit of whimsy to a room, don't you think? If a fully-covered canopy bed isn't your thing, the above seems like a perfect idea to add just a little bit of fairytale-like quality. Two pieces of light, gauzy fabric hanging from a copper ring, looks right at home paired with a daybed of comfy worn-in pillows and patterned wallpaper... I think I like the teeny tiny frame the best though, especially hanging on an angle like that, whether it was on purpose or not. Isn't this room gorgeous?
