Inspiration: Modern four-poster beds

I loved to make huts all over the house When I was small. I probably had one in every wardrobe (poor Mum! :). I always dreamed about having a poster bed because I saw them as big, deluxe huts. I still haven’t got a poster bed, but when I think about them, I still have the feeling of a luxury hut even as an adult.

There are so many variations of these heavenly poster beds (called “heaven beds” in Swedish), so I’ve chosen to show some in a clean, Scandinavian style ala 2012.

What do you think about poster beds? Do they feature in your wet bedroom dreams? :) …some of you might even be lucky enough to sleep like royalty in a poster bed.

Have a heavenly week! :)

    This is my favorite type of bed, I did not know that it is called hut bed :). And even if I bought a simple bed, now I am trying to get a hut for it or to improvise something to look like this one and a purple curtain, of course. That white blouse is so elegant and precious! :*

    Hejhej Hello!

    Thanks for the visit over at my place and for leading me back here!

    I too used to love making cubby houses when I was little though I must say I don’t like sleeping under a covered bed.
    I love a four poster bed without the hangings though and the ones you shared are beautiful.

    Ha en skön helg och tack igen för besöket.

    Lovely four poster beds, Maria. I wish I had one, they make you feel kind of more protected, as if in a cocoon. They might be harder to make, though!

    Have a great weekend, Maria!
