It’s nice to know that luxury interiors, once available only to the royal nobility and a small group of aristocrats, can now be enjoyed by almost anyone. Royal chandeliers, home libraries and corner Chesterfield sofas once adorned the homes of only those who stood on the top rung of the social ladder, but now these elements of the high life can be found in almost every apartment. The latest luxurious accessory is the four-poster bed.
Who among us has not dreamed of having the same luxurious bedroom as Napoleon or Marie Antoinette? A four-poster bed can not only transform an ordinary bedroom into a dwelling of refinement, elegance and luxury, but it can also fit into almost any style of interior, thanks to its flexibility and versatility.
Do you think that minimalism and a four-poster bed are incompatible? A look at this photo will prove you otherwise. This modest white bed will look as good in a minimalist bedroom as it does in the one in the photo, which is decorated in a trendy shabby chic style. The bed’s neutral colour will suit any colour scheme, and the columns create a pleasant feeling of security.
Poster beds do not necessarily require a heavy canopy. You can recreate the romantic image quite elegantly with a bed featuring carved pillars. The intricate carvings on this bed add texture to the room. The ottoman upholstered in soft, blue velvet completes the look.
Traditionally a four-poster bed often meant a sweeping tent structure with lush, expensive drapery and fine fabrics. But in fact, the look of this bed is much more flexible and diverse. The bed in this photo has little to do with the Baroque aesthetics and much more to do with a modern style.
If you're a fan of antique interiors, choose a bed of dark wood. It will become a symbol of luxury and exclusivity and will certainly occupy a central place in the interior of your bedroom. In conjunction with the royal chandelier and stucco ceiling, this bed helps transform the bedroom into a real royal chamber.
Is your design taste more eccentric? There is still a four-poster bed that expresses your individuality and originality. This colourful and ornate bed, stylishly made with printed linens, ensures a unique and fun room.
Four-poster beds originally existed in rooms so large that they could be too overwhelming or cold for sleeping. Today, most of us live in smaller bedroom rooms and do not feel as great a need to close ourselves in when we sleep. However, the idea of sleeping in a small, closed space is undeniable cosy. This bed provides that nest-like quality without shutting you off from the world outside.
What could be better than spending a weekend in a 5-star hotel on a tropical island, impressive settled on this king size bed? The atmosphere of this stylish bungalow can be recreated in your own house too! For this look, you need a light, woven canopy, fresh white linen and a small wooden couch beside the bed.
