It's All About the Drape

I've been completely fascinated with draped beds over the last few months, even installed one for myself!  There's such a variety of ways in which you can apply fabric around the bed, that whether you're heading a more traditional route or a more playful route, a draped bed can fit either scheme!

I love the simplicity of this...the softness of the bed drape provides a nice visual interest in a neutral aesthetic...Great fabric on the windows too!
This iconic bedroom Charlotte Moss designed for the Kips Bay Showhouse has such a delicate softness and floating the bed in the middle of the room is an innovative approach to space planning.

This playful vignette served as a concept of mine in a recent presentation.  The simplicity of the design allows the drape and valance to not only serve as window treatments, but frames the playful headboard...great use of an otherwise difficult space!
