Loving The Crown? Five ways to bring home the Windsor look

Written on 7 December 2020 by Courtney Manton in Property News


As the Netflix royal blockbuster, The Crown reaches the 1980s, giving your home decor that timeless Windsor twist is easier than you might think. Not everyone has Her Majesty the Queen’s priceless collection of heirlooms to fall back on. But, according to the Evening Standard Homes & Property, that shouldn’t stop you from creating your own mini palace. Here are five ideas for adding the Balmoral touch to your living space, whatever your budget.

Royal Home Decor

1 Accessorise like a queen

The Crown is full of carefully-staged royal interiors with plenty of chiming clocks, cut glass tumblers and decanters, tartan rugs and walls festooned with antler horns. A few choice accessories can help you create the look. Check out Witney Blankets for lambswool tartan throws. And no deer were killed in the making of Next’s antler wall and ceiling lights – they’re resin.

2 Royal colours

If you’re decorating, go for chalky heritage shades. Farrow and Ball’s Print Room Yellow bears an uncanny likeness to the Queen’s Sandringham office, as seen in the series. Old Violet and Paris Grey chalk paint from Annie Sloan fit right in too. Or check out Designers Guild, whose authentic Royal Collection fabrics and wallpapers draw on the vast royal archive.

3 Light it up

When it comes to lighting up rooms, this look is all about candelabra, candlesticks, chandeliers and table lamps – John Lewis have plenty to choose from including its Victoria chandelier. Add the odd, carefully-paced traditional table lamp to complete the look.

4 And relax

Royal sofas in the show are battered, squishy and piled high with cushions and throws. Oka’s Coleridge three-seater is a good choice.

5 Night night

If you’re planning a bedroom, think sumptuous with a statement bed. Hypnos has the royal warrant or try Perch & Parrow’s Botticelli king-size in ash and walnut for a right royal night’s sleep.
