Daydreaming // “The Crown”

Like everyone else in the world, I’m obsessed with “The Crown”. Typically, I’m a terrible TV watcher. I have zero loyalty to shows and immediately quit when I’m bored. It drives my husband crazy. I’ve finished only three shows in my life, but have now watched both seasons of “The Crown” twice.

The marvelous acting and impeccable writing are what initially kept me interested,  but it’s the lavish and detailed world that have me watching on repeat. From the wallpapered rooms covered with paintings to the floors overlapped with rich rugs, everything is decorated to English perfection. I couldn’t live in a more different place–a small white apartment in sunny California, and while I do love a simple space, I also think a few choice pieces of richness and texture are the perfect compliment to so much white. So I’ve complied a few favorite finds to add a bit of the royal life into my everyday.

Horse Bookends // Queen Elizabeth is a long-time lover of horses. In the show, her office often shows paintings and statues of horses. These bookends are a win win to me–beautiful and practical. From EBTH, an online estate sale marketplace.

Brass Pen // I love how the Queen is often at her desk writing letters. Even if you’re just writing the grocery list, class it up with this beautiful pen that will last for years. From Poketo.

Cream & Sugar Set // Who doesn’t love the British tradition of tea time? This vintage cream & sugar set is the perfect mix of intricate and yet still modern. From Etsy.

Painting //  Apparently the British Royal Family has the largest private art collection in the world. While you can’t compete with that, a painting, especially if it’s in an ornate frame, is beautiful way to add some richness and depth to a room. This piece is from EBTH. Other great places to find art are antique & vintage stores, Etsy and Ebay.
