Fit for a Queen

The royal wedding is hours away and Kate, sorry Catherine and William will be settling into domestic bliss (though I'm not sure how domesticated they would actually be).

But with royalty in mind why not get a bit  regal in your own home by  adding a splash of purple. 
The colour has always been associated with royalty, as centuries ago, the king, queen, and other nobility would wear the colour in the form of robes and cloaks. It was once so time consuming and expensive to dye fabric purple that it was only royalty that could afford to wear the colour.

Fabric is also key when it comes to adding a royal and luxurious feel when decorating and one of my favourites to use is velvet. It can be used on furniture or curtains, adding to a fairly natural hued room depth and elegance. 

Not a fan of purple? How about injecting a regal feel with a chesterfield sofa. Classic and elegant in style, fit for any queen.

Or how about this bed at Babington House. 

Don't you just want to dive right in?!
Looking forward to  the big event tomorrow and THE dress!
