Four poster beds

One of my little-girl must-haves was a four-poster bed (because princesses had them, natch). I loved the versatility. You could have a bare one, you could drape a dramatic scarf across just the top for a canopy bed, you could have curtains just around the posts, or you could do full-on curtains around the whole bed (American Girl Felicity, anyone?). Well turns out it's a big-girl obsession too. Here are some that I'm swooning over.

Take-away lesson: if you don't have billowing curtains, hang something above the headboard for an extra dose of fabulousness. Noted.
