Look What I Got!

Have you been following along with Amy at Maison D├ęcor and her shop series? Amy is fulfilling a lifelong dream ~ and I am living vicariously through her and the posts on her new shop.  Last week she showed these in one of her posts. {The next two pictures are from Amy’s blog}.


Love ‘em! I’ve been looking for something that I can use as a crown over the bed in the master and hadn’t seen anything I liked until I saw Amy’s post.  They are both lovely, but I got this one. You have to see how Amy dressed up the one I didn’t pick for her shop! Gorgeous!


I told Amy I'd be interested if and when she is ready to sell them.  Amazing Amy {who seems so tireless} got right back to me and I bought it within 24 hours of her post! She shipped it right out to me ~ even with everything she’s got going on right now.  If you didn’t know it before, then you can know it now, that her customer service is obviously top notch!




Now I just need to find some fabric for it to go with our master.  Keeping in mind that the walls are beige and I don’t want the fabric to blend in, I’m thinking to go a similar way to what Amy did either using this ticking with ties.

Or ~ I found a picture of a toile very similar to one I already have ~ in a color called Cypress.  I probably have enough to do a ruffled valance type piece for the front.  The Cypress color seems to go very well with the Duck Egg Blue color I have in this room.  I do love this toile!

Do I do tie on panels alone or tie on panels and a ruffled valance?  Here are some pictures I found for inspiration.

I’m liking the simplicity of the panels with ties and I like toile over ticking {if I had to make a choice}.   What do you think?  What would you do if it were your room {as far as fabric for the crown}?  Here are some pictures of our bedroom.



Don’t forget my Pick Your Plum giveaway going on through midnight tonight! This is for $75.00 worth of swag! You can see some pictures of previous giveaway items on that blog post.

Love coronas! A check or stripe can looks so pretty with the toile, and your bedroom is perfect for such a look. This is a link with a couple other pictures of coronas with toile that I posted a while back.

These are great inspiration pics, Kathy. I know whatever you do will be lovely. I did something similiar to this in my daughter's room when she was little. It's such a pretty, romantic look.

Hi Kathy! Oh, the crown will be beautiful over your bed. I don't have a clue as how to attach the fabric to it. I'll be looking forward to seeing it in your bedroom.
Thanks so much for popping in to see me.
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

It's been so fun following Amy's shop series. Love the crown you choose. Whatever you do it will look fabulous. I love the idea of combining the ticking and toile.

Hi Kathy,

The added ruffle would look beautiful with your fabric. I love the crown.

Hi Kathy, I've been following you and Maison Decor for a while now and enjoy all your posts. Twelve years ago I had a shop like Amy's. so it has been very interesting for me to watch her post. Now I have a little cottage on my property that my daughters and I sell refurbished furniture. We are trying to get our blog to look better, we are going to have Simple Klassic Designs help us out.
Thanks for all your imput.

I am a new follower now. I love the crown idea. I have been researching them and my daughter wants to put one each of her baby beds for the new nursery. Twins, we will need two. I googled and saw the one you bought, I follow Maison Decor too. Might have to drop her a line. We saw some in Canton, TX and drat, didn't know she was pregant at the time, now they are sold out. Can't wait to see yours. Lori

Well I am just seeing this now~I had my head under water at the time you ordered the crown!! But I have to say I LOVE the toile...and am so excited to see it done! Will you post a finished pic of it on my MaisonDEcor Blog page on Facebook? I would love others to see how pretty is with your fabric panels in the toile (in my fav color too)!
