As the longest-reigning monarch in Britain’s history, and one of the most recognizable people in the world, Queen Elizabeth is a cultural icon whose image is found on surfaces everywhere — from paper currency to magazine covers. The formidable monarch turns 90 today, and we're celebrating her birth with all the interiors in which she's popped up over the years.

The moment you walk into Coppy's Traditional Meets Modern Loft, you are greeted by a large photograph of the Queen of England by Chris Levine, looking both regal and human with her eyes closed.

Erin Foster's home office is graced with a profile of the monarch made entirely of pink sequins on black velvet— what looks to be a piece by Ann Carrington.

Artist Karl Lohnes has done a series of works featuring HRH, including this painting that was eventually reproduced by retailer CB2.

Andy Warhol's famous pop art hangs above the mantel in John Eshaya's Palm Springs home, a mass-produced symbol of the Queen's ubiquity.
