This past week has been a whirlwind of excitement at Amanda Nisbet Design. Over the last year, we have been working on an exclusive furniture line for One Kings Lane produced by Niermann Weeks, and the line officially debuted last Thursday here. One Kings Lane also featured an interview with Amanda to discuss the new line and a tour of her Manhattan apartment. My favorite room in Amanda's home is her bedroom. She has a gorgeous tufted headboard with a surrounding bed hanging made of Fortuny and Manuel Canovas fabrics:
I think every designer I've worked for has shaped my design preferences a bit, and there's no doubt Amanda has encouraged me to be more bold in every facet of creating an interior. The dramatic bedhanging she created here provides a cozy focal point for her bedroom.
Canopies provide a great opportunity to pull together a blend of fabrics and trims to give the bedroom a certain personality. Here are a few more of my favorite bedhangings/canopies:
Just as a canopy can create an elegant, sophisticated look, it can also add a fun touch to children's rooms:
I'm dying to add a bedhanging above my own headboard, despite the fact that I live in a rental. The fabrics would add a pretty, dramatic touch to my small bedroom. Are you a fan of canopy beds and bedhangings?
