Summer's here and with it long, lazy days and balmy nights. Sleeping with the windows open may mean you want a feeling of a bit more protection from the elements. Enter the canopy bed.
The high frame adds drama to a room - especially in light of today's more minimal, pared back styles. These tall, elegant frames are anything but frou-frou. Instead, their simple, clean lines are modern and fresh, but still feel special.
Whether you add the drapes, or go for streamlined look of the four tall pillars, these striking pieces will make every morning and evening feel exceptional. A touch of the sublime in the routine.
And with a set of 100% pure linen sheets, or an airy Summer Cover - your whole sleeping experience can be transformed. Linen is the perfect material for summer - breathable, light, and utterly beautiful - you needn't make the bed - just flick the cover and let it fall as it will... perfectly imperfect.

This beautiful bed from Sweet Elle
in Gardena, CA is almost the exact color as our St Barts Aqua! The owner & designer of the company is a fellow Brit like me, and her pieces draw on classic English style, yet feel updated and modern at the same time.
This beautiful faceted 4-poster looks stunning with a flash of red and the bright, contrasting white. From customer Linda King.
So go for it - make your bed a special haven with the beauty and drama you've often lusted after in the pages of magazines or home blogs. And don't be afraid to create be a little over-the-top! Playing it safe never produces a truly breathtaking result.
As I like to say "Live with your luxuries." Incorporate a little extravagance into your day-to-day. After all, that's part of the fun of living, isn't it?
