@Mz iMac I was just going to post the same thing about the movie. My grandmother had one and when my sister and I stayed there she thought it would be a treat for us to sleep in her room but.... after seeing that movie I hated it!!!!

Definitely a NO here. I do see the point of emphasizing the bed even more than it is, it is already a major piece of furniture in the room. Throw pillows and a throw will add coziness to a bed rather than all this fabric either behind it, over it, or at the corners.
Just kind of dated and heavy. I do not think we have to worry about closing a bed in against drafts anymore, it is called a heater. And as far as for privacy like they once were also used for, there are things called a doorknob with a lock. OK , just being a smarty pants I suppose... 😁

I want Room #5 for myself! I would change the artwork tho. I would say nay to a full canopy ( due to my dust allergy) but the semi-canopy shown this room adds elegance. If I could add the balcony from Room 9 this would be perfect!
I do like the other rooms except #3.

If the four posts are holding a curved frame it is a canopy.
If the four posts hold a frame that is flat on top, it is a tester bed. Origonally, in castles, heavy curtains were hung from the frame to hold in body heat when one slept in a drafty castle.
I have one because it goes well with the antiques. The carved headboard almost goes to the ceiling.
I would call these shorter versions a half canopy.
I love it! That's the canopy "princess bed" I wanted when I was a kid.
Nowadays, not so much. I think I would find one like this a bit claustrophobic not to mention a dust magnet.

Overall, nay. I don't tend to like four posters of any style, though I think some of them are pretty. I suppose I could live with a corona, partial canopy or maybe even a full canopy as long as there are not curtains surrounding the bed. I do not want to sleep surrounded by curtains.
