Keepin' It Regal with Decorative Crowns

Keepin' It Regal with Decorative Crowns

Oct 19, 2011

Royal fever may have died down quite a bit, however a love for all things regal certainly has not. We couldn't help but notice a prevalence of crown motifs prevailing over the average home décor.

• Looking to make a big impact in a small (or not so small) space, look no further than this coroneted wallpaper from British company Graham and Brown. The graphic black-and-white combo is definitely an attention-getter, and you can even purchase little rhinestones to bejewel the crowns as you please, adding an unexpected spark to otherwise plebian walls.

• Who doesn't want to feel like royalty upon waking up each morning? This corona canopy is far from little-girl-princess-y, and is a great way to add some Romantic Era glamour to the bedroom. Pair it with some muslin or other light, natural-woven fabric to bring the look down to earth and away from an overdone or gaudy look. Via Sarah Klassen/Haute Design

• A more understated (yet no less noteworthy) approach to adding some regality to a room is with crown-adorned artwork and accessories. The subdued tones of these pieces not only compliment the overall color scheme of the room, but they also subtly allude to entering a royal inner sanctum every time you head to bed. Via Morph Design

• Another look we can't get enough of are crown-centric vignettes in great spaces such as offices or living rooms. We've spotted royal-worthy headgear at thrift stores, flea markets, and even some discount retail stores that are anything but your daughter's dress-up tiaras. The varying patinas on these from Ally at From The Right Bank exude old world charm with a bit of mystery, and are certainly an intriguing conversation piece for any space.

• If formal hardware isn't your thing or you're looking for an afternoon craft for on a rainy day, consider these fun kronas from Paper Source. Just add some ribbon, rhinestone stickers, glitter glue or puffy paint and create original works of art in bright fun colors. The site suggests layering crowns for a truly unique royal look, making these great for letting kids create and add some regal accents to their own spaces.
