We must admit we were a little amused at a picture flashed across newspapers recently. It was the picture of Srija Konidela, the daughter of Chiranjeevi who got married and as she sauntered and clicked a few Insta pictures, we noticed that her Mehendi shots all had one thing that's pretty much made itself obvious in the decor - a big queen size bed with an assortment of quirky pillows and a neat floral headstand. A few months later, our timelines began going gaga over this new phenomenon all over again - brides all over have been flaunting this sweet decor idea and instagram-ing it to success. So what's the fuss about a bed? We got you all the deets.

Soon this went on a makeover and small sofas began making an appearance. Then, it was small little chairs and bean bags, soon it became all about divans. Now, in 2016, old school charm prevailed and we went back to the times all the ladies gathered around in the bride's bedroom and lo, queen-sized beds are taking over the jhula.
Picture courtesy: Andhrawishesh.comWhat kind of beds are we talking about here? King and Queen size beds with a neatly decorated headboard and a helluva lot of cushions. It's like being a maharani and being attended to by handmaidens. So yes, a nice cushy bed will do, thank you! Also get innovative and do suspended beds, or beds draped in florals !
