cheap 'n chic: pagoda bed crown

maison21 isn't the biggest fan of bed crowns- he just finds all that draped fabric a bit fussy, and the idea of all those folds collecting dust over m21's head while he is innocently sleeping, is giving maison21 a sneezing attack right now- ka-choo!

still, in the right application, a crown over a bed can be charming- m21 likes the proportions of them to add some drama to a pair of twin beds in a guest room, or more likely, in a room fit for a little princess. sometimes m21 even likes them over bigger beds for all -growed-up girls, who still have a little princess inside of them, too...

so we thought these chinoiserie pagoda style crowns from domestications were a bargain at $69.99. don't particularly care for the tie-backs- they seem a bit out of proportion with the crown, but the crown itself is pretty genius for the price. lacquered a solid color, they might be even chicer!

I am in sort of an Asian phase right now so this is very appealing. Thanks!

That is a beautiful crown. My partner Dan wanted a bed crown but I won the battle and managed to get a 4 poster canopy. Dust is a MAJOR issue when using bulks of fabric but a bedroom just isn't warm and inviting enough for me without it. So, I comprise...one night I lounge like royalty, the next night I dust like a humble servant.

This is rather nice, and actually it would work as a simple wall decoration, above a picture, like the reverse of a wall bracket.
