In celebration of the Olympics being held in England this summer, I thought a post dedicated to crowns might be fun. Even though they have been around for a while (just check out any home decor store) they still maintain popularity. I guess it is the princess in all of us that likes royal head wear. Whether they are antique, new, blinged out, or simple and elegant, crowns are pretty and can be used in a variety of ways to add a touch of stateliness and grandeur to your homes.
I love pillows and have created some for clients using crests similar to this one. They are wonderful embellishments and can be used on window treatments, guest towels...just be creative.
I delight in interesting pieces to use in decorating. This one just happens to wear a crown. This wonderful photo was taken by Simone of Fleaing France at a fair in Provence.
New items you can find at any home decor store.
Pretty simple crown and linens. Simple and elegant touches are always nice when decorating and accessorizing.
Even though I lean more towards vintage and antiques, I do like some of the new accessories that have an aged quality about them.
Coronets and beautiful fabrics can give a regal feel to any bedroom.
Another elegant coronet. This time the effect is more french chic.
I love this simple yet regal crown.
A new crown with a distressed finish would be a nice touch.
If husbands could just get this!
Do something whimsical like this. Decorating can get too serious sometimes.
So pretty. We all need a journal in which to write and reflect on our dreams. It is a way of keeping them before our eyes. Helen Keller once said, "The one thing worse than having NO SIGHT, is having SIGHT, but no VISION.
And I would be amiss if I did not pay tribute to British Royalty!
