The Royal Wedding Inspires the Home

Watching the royal wedding today, lots of details from the Westminster Abbey ceremony stood out as possible inspirations for the home. Here are a few:Black and white check: How could you miss the checked flooring of the Abbey in those aerial shots of the wedding? The black and white pattern accented with red is bold and classic, like the room by British designer James Merrell pictured in the first image above.

Forest-like greens indoors: We loved the indigenous trees lining the aisle inside the Abbey. Bring the forest inside of your home with large branches as seen in the third image above, decorated by Jackson Paige Interiors.

Red accents: The small red lamps that line the choir of the Abbey are a small detail that really stands out. For something similar at home, check out the buffet lamps at The Brass Gallery, $258.

See where we got our inspiration in these images of the ceremony at Zimbio.
