I thought about wrought-iron beds, which is what we have now (our bed is moving into the guest bedroom) and which are a certain kind of romantic, but Kevin likes reading in bed, and wants an upholstered headboard he can easily lean against. He is tired of spokes pressing through the pillows. So what do you think of this style of bed, with the winged headboard and footboard? Does it make you want to curl up and stay there forever? (This is the Celina by Mitchell Gold + Bob Williams -- I'm hunting for a less expensive version, and any suggestions would be appreciated. I do want the footboard part, because I think it really adds to the coziness.)
I'm pretty sure I could actually make this headboard / footboard, but I am not confident that it would look good. Especially the footboard, since I couldn't just hide my upholstery seams against a wall. :-) So if we did this kind of bed, we would have to actually buy it, I think.
