How can I create that canopy look from scratch? - I have a bed with a headboard. But I want to create a canopy like yours with the same exact look but my bed spread is black and white with paris, rome, Amsterdam, and such printed on it, along with red sheets. The color of the furniture in my room is a dark brown, close to black. I am open to changing my sheet color and adding a nicer color to create a beautiful bed and canopy. If you could please help me and tell me what colors I should use for the canopy and how to make it? along with where to get the materials. please and thank you

You must first measure your bed top and use 2 1/2 times that as the measurement for your curtain width...so assuming you have a double bed,,,6 foot 3 inches and 4 foot 6 inches then the total curtain width to go around three sides ,,, rounds up to 48 feet, which if your fabric is 48 inch width mean you have twelve drops at the length you need,,,giving you two drops each side of the bed at each corner ...you can attach these in lots of different ways, but it rather depends on how heavy your fabric is, and that includes the lining if you use any...gathered and stitched onto velcro is a good easy way, or by using curtain rings along the poles and standard heading tape and hooks, so the curtains can easily be laundered,,,if they are of heavy stuff, they may have to be permanently tacked or stapled to wooden rails,,,you can make a valance to hide the gubbins, either gathered, pleated or flat, and edged with a braid to finish it off,,,just use the 48 foot measurement for a gathered one or pleated, and use the actual bed measurements for a flat valance, the last one I made for my four poster was 14 inches deep as the fabric went into thirds to that,,,but different width cloth will give you different outcomes...in your picture they have threaded the bed pole though a channel, also you can bind the poles with strips of fabric, to create a Maypole effect,

The bedhangings and tented ceiling panels are made of silk tafetta, inter-lined with bump and lined with a cotton sateen.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Shoshana Gosselin added this to Yes, Please: Parisian Hotel Flair
To get the look of a Parisian hotel bedroom, pour on the fabric. Go for really rich, opulent fabrics, like velvet, damask, brocade, toile de jouy, lace, and of course, silk and satin. Use skirted tables at the bedside, and remember to make all the fabric look full.
