What Houzz contributors are saying:
Lit à la PolonaiseA lit à la Polonaise is a four-poster bed frame that’s bent to create an overhead crown. The phrase is French for “Polish bed,” and this style exudes a frilly, romantic air. Attaching fabric at the crown by ties, as shown here, or a pocket allows the fabric to be wrapped in swirling swaths around the supports.
1. We love: The aqua blue that mirrors the ocean and the delicate sleight of hand for accessorising only with the bare minimum but tasteful essentialsThis attic bedroom has been transformed into an wonderland of fantasy and wispiness. The changing daylight touches the walls here with light and shadow just the way it streams through clouds on clear seas. We also love the crispness of the white cotton canopy as it creates a comforting cocoon within this big space. Though it is the sense of serenity and calm in this room that has us spellbound.
