‘The Crown’ inspired look for your home using Frith Rugs


This post has kindly been sponsored by Frith Rugs to create ‘The Crown’ inspired look for your home.

When considering what is needed to create ‘The Crown’ look in your home, I concluded that it is really important to create subtle floral layers within your room.  Frith Rugs kindly gifted me this beautiful Aubusson rug which has a stunning vintage look with intricate and delicately woven flowers.  The quality gives a luxurious opulent feel and screams fit for a queen or king!


To help create ‘The Crown’ look continue the floral look with floral cushions and lots of fresh flowers in the room.  In our living room, I have included a floral garland which I made in a base of oasis.  It helps to create a grand royal look!

Using vintage prints and pictures in your home will give a gorgeous vintage look and look great against your vintage inspired rug.  You can also add an other vintage items to your room that will give your room a timeless feel – furniture, glassware and general decorative items like the calendar shown in this picture.

When creating a regal look in your home be sure to host an afternoon tea party with a Victoria Sponge of course and lots of tea!  Always serve your tea party on pretty floral, bone china and drink out of a cup and saucer.  You will instantly feel more majestic!


Consider using fabrics to layer your room, against your base floral Frith rug as this will enhance your ‘The Crown’ look.  I do this by draping blankets over the furniture and also you could consider patterns or velvets for your sofa and curtains.

The wall colour of your room is also really important when creating a royal look, consider soft blues, pinks and whites which will compliment this timeless look.

As you can see from the picture below by putting my Frith Aubusson rug against these layers of rich floral items it creates a room fit for a queen or a king!
