I'll start off this post with a very romantic bedroom photo that I have had on file (even before Pinterest - GASP!)
And an up close of the old frame with a picture behind it.
Or how about this bedroom - they used distressed doors for the base of the shabby chic platform bed and a antique mantel as a headboard!!! LOVE THAT!
OK on to the title of my post.......One of my favorite ways to make a bedroom cozy is to add drapes that run floor to ceiling. Not only will the drapes add height to a room, they will add a lot of warmth and great texture.
In Sherry and Johns (Young House Love) first house they show how fabric can soften their bedroom too.

If you know exactly where you will be putting your bed, making a built in niche is fun way to make your room feel custom. Notice they also have floor to ceiling drapes.
Although I didn't run drapes (yet!) around my personal master bedroom - I did sew my own drapes in the sitting bench area.

The drapes in this bedroom add a lot of softness. Although they did not run these floor to ceiling, I love the way they border the bed and the low window.
The way they choose to accent the orange by long drapes does wonders for this room!
And Lastly, this is a lovely bedroom with bamboo shades and patterned drapes running to the floor. Look at all the texture they bring into the room with the shaggy bedspread, fluffy carpet and the detailed chandelier!
Do you have drapes in your bedroom? If you don't, after reading this are you thinking about adding them??
