When the Cold Rolls in...

...I start craving naps in beds with canopies. Did you know that canopies were originally created when people still had thatched roofs, and were constantly threatened by various critters that lived in the thatch tumbling onto their beds? Take that, Trivial Pursuit! Knowing the provinence, it's pretty funny to think that canopies are now a singularly romantic and luxurious bit of decor. Ah, the irony.

I just came across these images on the always inspirational Marie Claire Maison, (also a great spot to brush up on my french...) and now I want to take a nap. Is there any better luxury than a good nap?
