Four Poster Dressed Bed

Modern Four Poster Dressed Bed

Traditionally the curtains on this style of four poster bed were designed to keep the drafts out and the occupant warm in bed.

Now with our nice warm well insulated homes they are mostly used for decoration.

This example is a subtle version of the original four poster bed using metal tubing instead of the traditional solid timber.

The curtains left drawn at the back provide a decorative backdrop to the bed setting and tied at the corners create a soft feminine look.

Moder Four Poster Bed in Elegant Neutral Surroundings

Traditionally the curtains on this style of four poster bed were designed to keep the drafts out and the occupant warm in bed. Now with our comfortable, well insulated warm homes they are mostly used for decoration. This example is a subtle version of the original four poster bed using metal tubing instead of the traditional solid timber.

The tab top curtains left drawn at the back provide a decorative backdrop to the bed setting and tied at the corners create a soft feminine look. The light neutral tone color scheme makes the room look open, texture has been used in the soft furnishings to provide interest and balance. The side tables are actually cane chests which are a good way to add color and texture to the room as well as much needed storage.

The lights on the walls have an interesting design and are well placed to provide general up and down lighting to the room. The rug under the bed adds softness and defines the bed area.

I think that this looks like a guest room as it lacks the personal belongings and storage facilities of a chest of drawers etc. It does work very well as a guest room as it provides a soft subtle design that is not offensive or “over the top” simply comfortable with a small aspect of fun with the four poster bed as the focal point.
