For a modern take a on the traditional canopy bed, try bed curtains. Instead of being mounted on a canopy bed, these curtains look great hung from the ceiling. You can use a combination of standard curtain rods mounted on the ceiling to create this look. The result is dreamy and cozy, but clean. And best of all this works with a regular bed and can be taken down whenever preferences change.
