To Coronet or Not?

Don't you just lust for these dreamy


This one above from French and Country has been a favourite of mine for a long time.

Everything in it is exquisite!

(French Madamemoiselle)
In gold

(French Blue)

Or white

Perhaps in silk with tiebacks on the wall

Or lined in toille with matching cushions


Simple sheers


Taupes and ties for the more French Country look




Over a daybed

Imagine it in an alfresco on a spring or summer afternoon

perhaps with just mosquito netting to keep away the unwanted


How romantic that would be!


  1. Ohh yes definitely coronets!!! I too adore them they really add such a romantic look to a bed. You have some really divine versions, such great inspiration! Thank you so much for the lovely credits too so sweet of you!!! Hugs - Glenda xxx

  2. Oh dearest, I have TWO OF THEM IN MY HOME, but unfortunately, not above my bed. My bed is rather majestic but my bedroom is a darling and cozy loft with eaves, so my coronets do not fit. HOWEVER, one of my treasures sits high above my French settee in my harp studio while the other one sits on a "headboard" that my husband made above our flatscreened TV! I will be posting pictures of my home in the next couple of weeks as I try to gather just the right amount of light. We have had so much rain here with lovely but gray days! HAVE FUN, Anita

  3. These are absolutely beautiful! So dreamy and romantic. =)

  4. Oh yes, definitely, coronet! Wonderful images.
    I'm taken away completely. xx's

  5. I love coronets, they look regal over a bed and romantic crowning over a dressing table.
    The first image from French and Country is one of the chambres at Hotel Particulier in Arles France.
    It is a stunning boutique hotel that we stayed in a few years ago.

  6. Beautiful photos as always. You have SUCH exquisite taste. Always a joy to visit your blog :-)

    Hugs xx

  7. What gorgeous, romantic bedrooms! The coronets add so much to their appeal. x Sharon

  8. Good evening beautiful!

    Thank you for coming and for such sweet comments. Funny, my writing has become POETRY and I didn't even try...but now, I am pursuing the study of poetry so that I can at least know what it is!!!!

    Oh your photos here are divine. I am enjoying my coronets and shall think of your lovely style. ENJOY A FABULOUS EVENING, Anita

  9. Absolutely! I adore them and would love to find a beautiful antique french one to go over my bed.
    Wishing you a most lovely week!
    xoxo, B
