Ever since Zach and I have enhanced our bedroom with curtains and bookcases and new carpet and a bed skirt and soft, white, bedding, I love spending time in there. It has become a tranquil and peaceful spot, and I find myself leisurely wallowing among the blankets and pillows out of sheer enjoyment (well, that and the fact that I am on doctor-mandated bed rest. But I digress). The paint on the walls looks prettier, the light coming in the windows seems brighter, and overall it just seems so much more appealing. So although I know we are probably a few years away from spending the money to buy a real bed frame, and I am perfectly content with our current bedroom situation, I can't help but poke around those sites I know and love for the perfect bed, so I have it in mind when the time to is right. I have recently been looking at this bed a lot. www.anthropologie.com And this bed is one I have long admired from afar. http://www.anthropologie.com/ But friends, the ante was officially upped when I saw these two fairytale beds, both handmade and both absolutely beautiful. Dawn emailed me this one, saying it was something she coveted. Rightly so, I say. www.slmetalworks.com And imagine falling asleep under this fanciful apple tree canopy. www.etsy.com/shop/attiladesign Couldn't you see these in a little girl's fairytale bedroom? Or in my fairytale bedroom? I have to believe that I would sleep more peacefully and have more pleasant dreams if I was surrounded by branches all night. The only thing that could make it better was if we put a skylight right in the middle of the canopy, so between the stars and the branches and the Oregon rainfall at night, it would be like sleeping in a storybook.
