bed curtains on Dara Caponigro's canopy bed

In lieu of a traditional and sometimes cumbersome canopy bed, I like to recommend that my clients consider an updated version of the canopy look that’s much more modern: bed curtains.

Bed curtains hung from curtain rods provide the same drama and cocoon-like enclosure that curtains hung from a bed frame do. The benefit of hanging curtains from rods is the longer floor-to-ceiling length, a lower room design cost, and greater aesthetic flexibility.
