While it’s an old trend, it is still, and will continue to be popular. It’s a very safe option if you plan not to change the decor of the room for generations as it doesn’t have a time stamp on it. Think of the interior design trends of the 60’s and 70’s, they went out of fashion and aged which requires an remodeling at some point. A room like the one below is timeless. The room will have to be touched up to keep it fresh but the general underlying design of the room remains. The arm chair and foot rest, pillows and even the drape around the bottom of the bed are floral, which is a massive trend in 2014, therefore, even a room which is traditional could be accessorized with fixtures and fittings which are in vogue, so long as they complement the principles of the room.
On the other hand, maybe the simplistic look is not really your style. You should consider a four poster double bed frame to add a new feel to your place. This look will take your room on a 360 degree spin from the old styling of your traditional bed to an elegant and aristocratic new look. These are also available in a variety of materials, with wood being the most popular of the group for this type of bedroom set. This style is also available as a canopy if you are after a more graceful and feminine Victorian style.
