The Royal Home Design


Kate and William tied the knot! Were you inspired by her beautiful Alexander McQueen lace gown or the Royal Wedding?



Interior design and fashion often collide. Each takes inspiration from the other. And, what inspiration might we take from the Royal Wedding?

The beauty of lace is utilized in this modern spare bedroom. An overscaled modern lace design is used as an accent wall behind the low profile bed. The focus is on texture and line in this almost all-white space.

Beautiful frilly white lace and crystal combine to create a truly feminine retreat. Fresh and etheral, this room looks angelic, just as Kate Middleton did on her wedding day.

Without the use of color, this pure white bedroom remains stimulating through the use of various textures and finishes. Delicate lace is juxtaposed with a rustic whitewashed headboard and modern slick white saarinen table. The look is breathtaking!

An all-white bathroom mixes glistening white mosaic tile and a dazzling crystal chandelier with white matte walls and a textural window treatment. Who said stark white was nothing more than plain vanilla?


Inspired by the British flag, these accessories pop against the crisp white background. They're fun and cheerful and assist in creating a lively and energetic space.

The British flag is red, white, and blue in color, combining the Cross of Saint George, the Cross of Saint Andrew, and the Cross of Saint Patrick. This avant-garde dresser, taking it's inspiration from the British flag, is fresh, vibrant and eye-catching. It surely wouldn't go without notice in any room!

This may be taking British inspiration a bit too far! While it certainly is dramatic and colorful, I'm uncertain as to the longevity of a sofa with such a theatrical gesture. When you want to make a statement, don't be timid! Then again, maybe a simple pillow could suffice.

I'm sure we'll be seeing images of the best dressed guests and their show-stopping hats for days to come. Did anything inspire you?
