Splurge on a few yards of your favorite fabric, and then use it sparingly on several key items in your room. Heather’s floral fabric made appearances on the canopy, pillows, and desktop. “I got away with using about 7 yards,” she says. To avoid having to buy extra material to meld together two pieces for the canopy, she suggests taking a piece from one bolt and adding a 4-inch mitered band of linen around the edges.
Style Secret: “Canopies tend to sag over time, so if you want yours to be tight, make it a few inches smaller than the inside dimensions of the bed,” Heather says.
