Curtains are hung from cornices and trimmed with fabric that mimics the damask design of the wall and headboard fabric, offering an unusual interpretation on the more conventional canopy bed in the 2006 Kips Bay Decorator Show House.
A set of twin beds in this cottage-style guest bedroom offer visitors more options than a full or queen model. Cornice boards upholstered in blue gingham are mounted above each bed and lined with a sheer drape that lends an ethereal, cloud-like feeling to the space. Quilts on the bed reflect the home's North Carolina heritage.
A decorative bed crown adds an elegant touch to this girl's bedroom. Designer Shoshana Gosselin covered a cornice board in white cotton fabric, complete with pink welting. She added floral and butterfly draperies with royal blue ribbon tiebacks to match the playful design of the bedroom.
A custom canopy and rich drapery panels make the bed the dramatic centerpiece of this luxurious master suite. Certainly a high-end look, a bed crown is a relatively easy project to accomplish. Simply attach a fabric valance to a wooden shelf to create a cornice, then suspend the drapes from a cafe rod mounted within. Design by HGTV fan EastTN2.
Pattern doesn't have to mean an uproar of color. In this tropical-inspired bedroom, graphic wallpaper envelopes the room in a subtle elegance. A transitional love seat positioned at the end of the bed creates an offbeat seating area. The tall cornice box calls for larger nightstands – in this case, a chest of drawers and writing desk.
This boy's red and white bedroom was designed to match his love of LEGO bricks. It includes a red and white striped area rug with matching cornice, a white window seat with cabinet storage, a clear acrylic play table, a blue and white striped bed with custom pillows, and a creative bundle hanglamp pendant light that looks a group of light bulbs suspended from red strings.
