With the combination of further social restrictions and the typically seasonal weather, many of us have retreated to the safety of our sofas for some much-needed escapism. There have been plenty of televisual treats to enjoy, with historical drama ‘The Crown’ topping the ratings.
Thanks to the latest season of the popular programme, our conversation has turned from tiers to tiaras and mince pies to Her Majesty. The show and its sets have even infiltrated the world of interior design, so here are some ideas of how to create a luxury look in your own home.
Divine Decadence at Home
They say that former fashions will eventually come back into vogue, and this certainly seems to be true of many of the stately styles witnessed on ‘The Crown’. Real Homes have pinpointed the key looks that can be copied at home – here are three of our favourites at House of Harrogate.
- Classical Rococo: Add traditional touches of this historic style with patterned wallpaper, scroll detailing and curved furniture to create the sense of more space as well as stylishness.
- Dark woods such as mahogany: A popular choice in the most splendid of stately homes, this natural material is a handsome, long-lasting and eco-friendly choice for floors, walls and furniture.
- Tempting textures: From lavish upholstery in the bedroom to majestic marble in the bathroom, add a feeling of opulence with the finest quality materials in complementary colours and patterns.
A Bedroom Fit for a Princess
At House of Harrogate, we strive to fulfil the needs and desires of our clients as closely as we can. Our knowledge of design, materials, fitting and features means we can create heavenly havens that can help to make a humble abode feel like a royal residence.
This traditional bedroom design is a perfect example of practicality, comfort, and attention to detail working together to create a sumptuous sleeping space. The floral wallpaper is bold yet soothing, with its colours carefully mimicked in the headboard and storage units.
The wooden floor and dark curtains offer elements of textural contrast, while the window seat is both functional and sophisticated. Flexible lighting helps transform the space from calming at night to invigorating in the morning, with ceiling spotlights and chic suspended bedside lamps.

While you may not have the floor space or funds for palatial living, these suggestions show just how easy it can be to create a luxurious lifestyle within your own home. From a boutique bedroom and stylish en suite to an elegant kitchen or even a cinema room, House of Harrogate can help.
